Reconstructing The Black Freighter

One of my favourite bits of Watchmen is the comic-within-the-comic, one of Moore's alternate world's pirate horror comics, "The Tales Of The Black Freighter". Images from an issue of the comic interspersed the story, adding a counterpoint to the big picture of a world tumbling into chaos, and highlighting its darker moments.

And now someone has extracted the Black Freighter from Watchmen, giving us a full 20 pages of speech and illustrations from a comic that never was.
