understanding comics.

Karen, Bethany, and I had story time in the library on friday. It was a wonderful experience. I will cherish it forever.

In Understanding Comics, they talked about the different types of transitions and how comic books work. It was quite interesting to study comic book structure to see how it works so successfully. The different transitions are moment to moment, action to action, subject to subject, scene to scene, and non-sequitor. The transitions are just that, what they sound like. Non-sequitor on the other hand is when the scene cuts from thing to a completely different place, idea, object, etc. Closure is everything to the reader, you see this in television even, the closure aspect. shape outline is enough to trigger it. closure is the agent of time and motion. COMICS ARE CLOSURE. viewers interaction with the image is important
