Making Comics - MEKA

In Making Comics, page 160, McCloud introduces the "establishing shot." In MEKA, this scene of a sprawled out mech in a war-torn and demolished part of the city is visited and referred back to many times throughout the remainder of the story. Often the time of day has changed, and there are some alterations to perspective, but it is always this same "Ground-Zero" were are shown to bring us back to what has happened.

BTW, this uses 3-Point Perspective, which McCloud also discusses within the same chapter.
