One Comment on “Comic Therapy”

  1. Nice to see my interest in comics and my interest in psychology coming together in this post. I’m going to be a bit of a stickler, though, if you don’t mind.

    A panel is a single image in a comic, usually used as a snapshot in time of the ongoing action. The frame refers to the borders that enclose a panel. So we don’t read frames so much, we read panels.

    While panels are usually rectangular, they needn’t be and aren’t always. Aaron Diaz, for example, makes great use of non-rectangular panels in his comic Dresden Codak. In his words, “Panels can take any shape you want. So long as the content is clear and readable, anything goes.” He wrote about just this subject here: http://dresdencodak.tumblr.com/post/841119890/advanced-layouts-paneling-outside-the-box

    Thanks! :)
