Welcome to the motherlode of Zack Snyder auctions. The blood-spattered smiley button from the 2009 adaptation of Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The actual button used in the movie, worn by The Comedian, and picked up by Rorschach and appearing prominently in all marketing for the film. This should be going for big bucks at Comic Connect as the auction comes to an end today, as well as several other production items from the movie, below. The button is currently at $1200, and I confess, I am tempted. Here are the details of this, and other Watchmen movie production relics.
The Comedian's iconic bloody smiley badge, created for, and used during the filming of Zack Snyder's filmed version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' classic 1986 comic series Watchmen. Maybe the most recognizable piece of iconography from Watchmen, the bloody smiley face graced the cover of the first issue of the comic series and set the tone for the story it contained. Portrayed in the film by Jeffery Dean Morgan, The Comedians brutal death sets in motion a story of murder-mystery, set in the world of costumed adventurers and a god-like being. The button measures 1.5" in diameter and is in production used excellent condition. Includes a certificate of authenticity.
