Making Comics (2) "Moving Pictures"

INTENSITY vs Clarity

Before reading this chapter of Making Comics I never would have said Moving Pictures was at all an intense comic. However, after learning that intensity could be expressed through "virtuoso drawing technique" and such, not just extreme poses, I would definitely say that on the teeter-totter of comics this weighs heavily on Intense. Now not all of the images are like that Mona Lisa, but many are heavily shadowed and play on many shots of extreme lighting. Despite all of the text found in characters' conversations rarely is anything actually revealed in the story or the characters, there is little clarity and much mystery.
