Adam Hughes Weighs In On "Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan" - Comic Book Resources

  Adam Hughes Weighs In On "Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan" - Comic Book Resources

The power of a great cover design. Sex sells and this sure will make this book fly off the shelves. Exploiting the sensuality of the female character (who was such a dominant presence, beauty-wise, in the film is a good idea. They obviously look like they're getting it on. Note the use of warm colors on the woman, made more obvious by her black uniform, while the rest of the book's image is in cool blues. Blue and flesh color are a great combination. On black women the color yellow is very attractive next to brown skin. Adam Hughes usually does a great job drawing women. More power to him.
