Making Comics - Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind: vol. 2
On page 15 of "Making Comics," we're introduced to the 6 transitions. While reading Nausicaa, I noticed how large the scope of the comic was (lots of stuff is happening, across large locations).
In the parts of the book where there's LOTS of characters interacting with each other (which leads to some panels getting VERY detailed) I feel like those action to action transitions help pull us in and see what really matters, and the aspect to aspect transitions help us swallow all the detail going on (and sometimes, it's quite a bit.)
Above, you can see a little example of this pulling in and out with action to action and aspect to aspect transitions in a large battle - pg. 46 and 47.
