Closure and Time Frames: Bruno Signorelli

Two panels from Batman: The Killing Joke.

These two panels show closure in the form of action to action. This is the case because in the first panel we see the subject drinking his coffee, and in the next panel he is handing his coffee to someone. This shows the action that the subject is doing and it is done with a simple panel transition.



Sequence of panels from Batman: The Killing Joke

This sequence of panels is a good example of time frames because it forces the reader to interpret what is happening in the scene because nothing is said or really shown in the panels. Yet the image keeps zooming in on a part from the first image (the puddle of water), and it leaves the viewer to decide what happened.
