Something important to note about anything written by Alan Moore — and Watchmen in particular: Moore’s exhaustive scripts typically laid out pages and panels for his artists before they ever put ink to board.

(For reference see: http://home.insightbb.com/~fourcolorheros/free/WatchmenScript.pdf)

In fact, this is true of many (though not all) comics. In the initial script, the writer decides how many panels will appear on a page and where they should be oriented.

Just sayin’.
