Noir meets reality

Planetary – Ellis, Cassaday & DePuy (Laurie Dix)


This is another nice example of the frames spilling over into one another. I like this effect, and when used properly it can add real depth to a spread. The style, once again, is similar to that popular with American and European comics, and although it is not doing anything particularly new or special, it does have some nice layouts.

The use of lighting is quite nice sometimes as well, and the angles vary a lot, adding motion to the spread and the images.

Although not quite suited to the style that we will be used, I do like the overlapping panels, and may suggest to my illustrators using this technique once or twice.

Below is another example of nice layout, using only horizontal panels, adding pace to a scene.
