Invisible Emotion: Matthew Mollet

Crazy Men Comix

McCloud explains that that interdependent comics need both an image and text to convey their meaning. This short scene from “Crazy Men Comix” shows an evil man (Terrible Fred) being turned into a beast by a sorcerer. While the artwork might convey this, the short description through the dialog shows exactly what happened.

Batman Cat

This scene is an example of line quality that conveys emotion. McCloud that line can show a range of emotions, and this comic shows a characters emotions shift through multiple scenes. As the character thinks about the events in the story, his emotions turn from surprise to anxiety when he thinks more about the situation. The line moves from a bewildered expression to bead of sweat pouring down the characters face.
