At long last, I have a new article up at Comixpedia called “Loopy Framing”! This one tackles the similarities between word balloons, thought bubbles, and panels, arguing that they are all essentially the same thing. Oh, and it reveals some nice aspects of human cognition along the way.
I should also note that this article wouldn’t have been nearly as good looking (or timely) without the fantastic illustrations by Tim Godek. Since I’m generally swamped with schoolwork, Tim kindly agreed to help out and make this happen, to which I’m greatly appreciative. Be sure to thank him too, by checking out his site and blog (which are on my regular reading list).
I look forward to hearing your feedback, either here or on the article’s thread. Enjoy!
