Gee-Whizz, Rorschach’s awesome, isn’t he? Well, when I say awesome I do actually mean a violent sociopathic masked vigilante loon who revels in the violence and insanity of his chosen path in life! That said, even though Rorschy (yep, I said Rorschy! it may not roll off the tongue like Batsy, Wondy or Supes, but!) suffers wildly with anti-social personality disorder and an aggressive attitude only surpassed by a psychopath like the Joker, there’s still something endearing about Alan Moore’s unstable creation (and when I say endearing, I obviously mean if you ever encounter him… RUN AWAY!!)
We have written several posts about our absolute favourite Watchmen character over the years, some of them an in depth disquisition of his pernicious psyche, but also more light-hearted looks at how he ultimately perceives the world around him at large, with our – Rorschach’s Quote Of The Week being the absolute most fun to write, each post a small dichotomy from Rorschach’s perspective, and ours. I loved writing these back then, but ultimately, ran out of quotes, plus the views for the site were much lower way back when I first conceived the idea. And so, I decided it was time to resurrect Walter Kovacs and his warped view of morality and justice as a compilation of greatest hits! So read on dear agents of Precinct1313 as we explore the morality dilemma that is Rorschach!

*Warning: Doomsday Clock Spoilers Ahoy me hearties!*
“Rorschach’s Journal: November 15, 2017 – I appear to be back, or am I? after my obvious demise at the hands of Doc Manhattan how is this possible… who am I, where am I, and what has happened to my physicality? I appear to be someone… other, hmmm, a paradox!”
Hey, have you heard? Rorschach’s back! That’s right the viciously vehement vigilante with the ink blot mask, surly temper and loathing for the criminal fraternity has re-materialised on the physical plane after his apparent deadly demise at the hands of Doc Manhattan… or has he!? Well that’s a spoiler that I reverently refuse to reveal! What I am going to share with you though, fellow CrimeBusters, are some of the phenomenally perfect panels from Rorschach’s recent rendezvous with classic characters from the DC Universe… especially Batman, in fact, Batsy and ‘schach make for an almost peerless comic(al) duo…
And this one may not have Rorschach in it (though he is just off panel) but it’s way too fantastic not to include…
DC’s Doomsday Clock series is a semi sequel to Alan Moore’s phenomenal and groundbreaking original 80’s masterpiece, and happily holds it’s head high in comparison to it’s almost unparalleled peer, highly recommended.

With our usual quotee Rorschach on an extended leave (due mainly to Dr Manhattan literally obliterating him on the spot!?) he has handed over the reins to fellow masked avenger and valorous victor of the valiant vox-populi – “V“, and V believes this quote to be rather judicious at this juncture.
“V – bringing masked vigilantism to the UK masses since 1987!”
Who said Rorschach doesn’t understand subtlety… Whoever it was, is probably in intensive care right now!!

Not to be outdone by his fellow Crimebuster team member – Rorschach, Edward Blake aka The Comedian recently stormed Precinct1313’s comic crypt and demanded that he also is honoured with a series of ‘profound’ quotes. And how could we refuse the psychopathic masked vigilante his just due (it may also have had something to do with the twin .45 pistols he was waving menacingly in our direction, of course!)
The Comedian, bringing unhinged, sociopathic masked vigilantism to the masses since 1986!
Well this is pretty damn profound for a character that everyone believes is just a psychotic, sociopathic masked vigilante, just goes to prove that you should never judge a book by its cover… oh and if you disagree with him, he will literally break every bone in your body!!!

Next time you find yourself incarcerated in a maximum security prison full of Supervillains and crazies, use this classic Rorschach quote and everything should be fine*
*By ‘should be fine’ we mean it absolutely won’t be, and you should probably put your head between your legs and kiss your arse goodbye!
Rorschach – Bringing unstable masked vigilantism to the masses since 1986!
Are Supervillains getting you down? Tired of having sand kicked in your face by the Joker? Well we have you covered, the next time Bane gets all up in your face just quote a line from Rorschach’s limited vocabulary and watch as those masked SuperVillains run for the hills.
