Making Comics - Heavy Liquid
In Making Comics there is a lot of discussion about the importance of the background, especially establishing shots. Here Paul Pope uses 3 panels to set the scene of the crowded bar, in a busy city. The panels all bleed off the page, and there is very little framing giving the reader the feeling of being immersed in the crowd. There is minimal use of word bubbles so that the focus is on the scene itself.
