Like Moore’s novel, Poe’s short story utilizes repeated images related to time and blood. The vicious punk gang members responsible for the murder of Hollis Mason belong to a subculture called Knot Tops, who take their fashion cues from Red D’Eath. One of the Knot Tops, Derf, is depicted in the film version of Watchmen wearing an upside-down Anarchy symbol on his clothing. Upside-down, the Anarchy ‘A’ becomes a shape halfway between the original symbol and the V employed by the lead character in Moore’s V for Vendetta, while also offering a dark counterpoint to the $ symbol on the hero Dollar Bill’s costume, and the iconographic S of Superman.
The musician with the closest associations to Watchmen is, of course, Alan Moore himself. Heavily involved in the 1980s punk scene, Moore wrote music journalism under the pseudonym Curt Vile, a punning reference to Threepenny Opera composer Kurt Weill. Moore’s 1980s band the Sinister Ducks released a recording of “This Vicious Cabaret,” a song originating in Moore’s V for Vendetta. Moore also recorded two tracks as “Eddie Enrico and His Hawaiian Hotshots” for inclusion with copies of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier.
Rorschach’s false assumption that Blake’s murder is part of a plot to kill costumed heroes is the false mystery, encouraged and built up by Veidt to hide the true mystery. This false mystery fools the readers as well as Rorschach, making both parties focus on solving the wrong problem. We as readers follow Rorschach down the wrong path, delving too much into Blake’s life and giving a false impression as to the motive behind his killing. Chandler’s third addenda note is that the reader should care about the corpse.
