13thDimension gets a first look at the Watchmen Artifact Edition from IDW. And a page from Neil Gaiman. Did we know that Neil took part in the creation of the comic? We do now…

In fact, I was talking to Neil Gaiman a couple of weeks ago — managed to have a catch-up with him over a cup of tea, which was great — and I mentioned this project to him and he’s got one particularly prime page that Alan (Moore) and I gave him back in the day when he used to help us with sourcing quotations and so on. He’s got the dream sequence — the Nite Owl dream sequence where there are, I think, like 20 panels on the page. So that’s a real iconic and favorite page. –Dave Gibbons
