select a single page from one of the graphic novels we have read for the course, and show how it develops a central theme (or, the relationship between themes) of that work in particularly interesting ways. Your thesis should clearly articulate the theme(s) which you perceive at work on the page; the discussion that follows the introduction will illuminate how the page develops the theme(s), connecting the page to the work as a whole.
The selection of the page itself represents an important part of this assignment. Choose a page which provides a rich source for you to interpret. Consider how the page contributes to the theme or themes you see at work locally on the page, and globally in the work as a whole. Focus on at least three of the following elements:
style: Is the artistic style more realistic or more iconic? Which, for example, is rendered with a greater degree of realism — the backgrounds or the characters? Are all characters rendered in the same style?
space: How does the artist use the relationship between what is there and what is not there? Space surrounding an object may call attention to it. Lack of space may create a crowded or closed-in feeling.
size and shape: How do the sizes and shapes of panels emphasize the works theme (if they do)? How do the sizes and shapes of the font or fonts emphasize the works theme (if they do)?
line: What emotional effects does the artists line convey? A jagged or sketchy line may convey energy or uneasiness. A thick, even line may convey solidity.
transitions: What type of transitions does the page favor? Why use these particular transitions? What theme or themes might they advance?
design: How does the artist use all of the above elements to advance the themes of the story?
As you may have guessed, that last question is the most important one. But you need to address the earlier questions before answering it.
(Necessary source will be attached to the order, also I will include a list of comic books, if you could find them on the internet would be great, if not then just work with the attachments, thank you)
