Closure and Time Frames: Libby Fletcher

I decided to pick up the comic book Love is Love because I liked the way the book was laid out.  The example I chose for closure is moment-to-moment.  The panels are showing a man’s reaction to learning about the shooting at Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida.  This is an example of moment-to-moment closure because the reader can tell that very little time has passed between the panels.

I thought this was a good example of how time can be manipulated within a comic book.  The page is explaining why night clubs like Pulse are so important to the LGBTQ+ community.  However, at first, the time frame was a little bit tough to understand because of how the panels aren’t structured uniformly.
