Making Comics - Nawlz
On page 36 of "Making Comics," Choice of Flow is being talked about.
McCloud mentions something I find very interesting - if the flow stops (gets confusing) you're no longer immersed in the world of comics, because you have to stop and figure out what's happening in order to get back into the story. This reminded me of *NAWLZ!!
Nawlz is really interesting because there's a mixture between music, animation, and illustrations to help immerse you in the world. The way the panels cycle through or pop-up, the way music fades in and out, and how you navigate is all part of "Choice of Flow," and I think it's worth checking out really quick just to see what's possible with flow - to see what's working/what's not for you, etc.
again, here's the link - http://www.nawlz.com
*I've only gotten through half of Season 1, but just as fair warning, some F-bombs get dropped. Other than that, it's a pretty cool little subconscious trip. Not sure what kind of content shows up later, since I haven't read through all of it.
