Closure and Time Frames: Jon Klaveano

The comic book I choose was created by Robert Venditti and Mike Huddleston. The comic book is titled “The Homeland Directive.” Huddleston is an award winning comic-book artists, illustrator, and concept designer. Venditti on the other hand is a New York Times Bestselling author of the sci-fi graphic novel series “The Surrogates.” His most recent work has become an international bestseller “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Theif. I really enjoyed the art work in this comic and that is why I choose it. Its biggest attribute to me is how diverse each page is in color and style. Each page is like a different comic book.

Example of action-to-action. Found in (The Homeland Directive)

I choose this photo to represent closure because I really enjoyed the action sequence represented in these pages. The scene represented is quite intense and you can obviously see there is a lot going on here. These two pages do a great job of showing what closure is.Especially in particular the two frames in the middle where you see what i’m assuming to be the protagonist burst through a door and then fire his weapon. We also see the product of him firing off his weapon at the bottom of the page.




Example of a weird timeline. Found in (The Homeland Directive)

The next scan I took of the comic book represents a unusual timeline.  When considering what frame is next and how much time has passed between frames. That being said I found these pages and thought they would work best. Like the last scene this is a very intense time. I think this is perfect because whether you read from the bottom-up or top-down it always meets in the middle with the interaction between our protagonist and his foe. At the bottom of the page you also have the choice of reading from left to right, or right to left.
