While the names Moore and Gibbons readily spring to mind when the name of a certain much beloved graphic novel classic is named, there is a THIRD member of the creative crew, colorist John Higgins, who worked on the original WATCHMEN and the remastered Absolute edition. In the intervening decades, Higgins has solidified his reputation as a fine cartoonist in his own right, and he’s proud to announce a new edition of his magnum opus, RAZORJACK. While the book was originally self-published, the UK indie Com.x has collected the entire story into one graphic novel, available in many fine comics shops and on Amazon here.
