Parasha: Understanding Comics - September 15th reading

So, I'll obviously buy that you can convey emotions through art, but I'm not sure he's wise in introing the section the way he does, because those specific examples I think are pretty poor! I mean, does anyone for instance look at the picture with a bunch of triangles and think "cold"? Anyone?

Also: using Rob Liefeld as an example of anything? Really? Ugh. *twitch* So much for credibility of comics...

Anyhow, I'm not all that sure this chapter was all that strictly necessary. Yes, pictures convey emotion. I think we all realize this, and did before the chapter. There's some interesting examples, and pointing out about icons, pictures becoming abstracted to become written language, etc... but I suspect just about all of that could have been tucked away in other related chapters (and some of the repetitious stuff removed to make room for it.)

But maybe that's just me being picky.

Friday: Chapter Six: Show and Tell (ooer, kinky.)
