Pages from Scarlet, written by Brian Michael Bendis, art by Alex Maleev.
It’s a truly stand-out comic that can turn something as basic as introducing a character’s back story, into a visually memorable sequence.
At first glace, it just looks like fifteen panels in standard layout. But it’s really fifteen snapshots of the defining moments and characteristics in Scarlet’s life to date. Note that the last panel of a Portland landmark, which breaks the rhythm established so far, is enlarged to emphasize the most telling quality about her.
It’s exposition done as only a comic can do.
IT’S LIKE SHE’S BEING PULLED DOWN BY A SPIRIT OR SOME SHIT
is that HAIM ?
Its so beautiful
This is crazy….
Tis not crazy, Disney would have the voice actors act out a scene so that the artist could use it as a reference. In fact the audio for the Mad Hatter is all taken from this scene.
So when someone tells you that “referencing is cheating”, just know that they’re lying.
Nearly all of the best artists reference!
