Thanks to everyone who took my recent experiment, as well as to everyone that linked to it! I’m greatly appreciative for the support, and I assure you that this goes directly to insightful research on comics comprehension. This link actually had two separate experiments that it led to. I can’t reveal anything about the second one, but I can describe what we were analyzing in the first one.
If you got the one that asked you to describe only single panels, we were analyzing how “active” or “passive” the descriptions of the actions in the panels were. These results will help interpret the results of another study that used these panels, as well as help design a future follow-up study.
Also, be sure to stay tuned to this site for future experiments. Several more should appear in the coming months.
