Ok, So That Johns Post Isn’t Happening Any Time Soon

Monday, August 25th, 2008

It’s just not coming together right - I’ll pick it up and try again another time. In the meantime, I’m doing some research on page structure in American comics - I’m going through works by, among others, Los Bros Hernandez, Quitely, Giffen, Ditko, Kirby, Miller, Chaykin, Moore, McNeil, Infantino - and I’m trying to figure out who else I really want to look at. What I’m doing is going through a chunk of each of these creators’ work, and finding examples of innovative, influential, or just damned nifty page structure. Most of the people I’m looking at are artists, obviously, but Moore sneaks in, thanks to his ridiculous scripts. I’ll hopefully have my first one of these posts by the end of the week - if there’s anyone I should be looking at and haven’t mentioned, please, let me know.
