Making Comics - Powers: Psychotic

The Principle that is represented in this spread from Powers: Psychotic is the relationship and balance between Clarity and Intensity. The authors are obviously more concerned with the reader feeling the Intensity of the scene rather than having the scene shown with more Clarity. The drawings and dialog are all extravagant and stylized, the borders of the panels are almost indistinguishable, but using the Intesity of the drawings and dialog the reader is drug through the action and content of the pages. But to do this the authors had to sacrifice some of the Clarity of the scene. The pages of this novel are not numbered.
