Your Wednesday Sequence SupaSpecTac DeluXXXury Edition #2
This week on my Robot 6 column I interviewed the great Benjamin Marra about the mechanics of comic book storytelling, spotlighting a couple of his phenomenal pages along the way. I've been wanting to talk about Ben's approach to sequencing for a while now: his comics are the wildest around but they're always just flawlessly composed, with an incredibly cool control of the information on the page. As far as action storytelling goes right now, some artists get more baroque, but for my money no one's as effective. Ben had some really fascinating secrets to reveal in our chat about his working methods, and on top of that he can talk you through Jack Kirby's pages like nobody else. Head over here and read it; you just might learn a thing or two.
