Gesture, Making Comics, All-Star Superman, Chad Ruger
"There are a few basic kinds of RELATIONSHIPS between our physical actions and the messages they convey."
I love Gesture and what it can communicate. The perfect example is how in All-Star Superman, Clark and Superman have the same mass but are looked at by characters and the readers to appear very different. Just by adding a simple slouch to superman's physique(and a big coat) Clark becomes a chubby clutz, completely contrasting his true self and securing his secret identity.
