Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

From page 98 of Watchmen As Literature, by Sara J. Van Ness.

"While it is true that the interaction of images and words and the paneled format of sequential art allows readers to potentially see multiple times and spaces at once, readers necessarily have to ingest the information in somewhat of a linear fashion ... The reader recreates Dr. Manhattan's consciousness of space and time, but it is limited by representation."
