Comic Book School co-hosts Buddy Scalera and Mike Fasolo discuss the visual storytelling elements of Jimmy’s Bastards by AfterShock Comics.
They analyze the importance of “show versus tell” about your characters. Exposition is necessary, especially for independent creators, since audiences do not know your characters or world.
The story by Garth Ennis, Russ Braun, John Kalisz, Rob Steen, and Dave Johnson (cover) demonstrates effective exposition in a visual medium. We break down the first seven pages of the comic to illustrate effective visual storytelling. Learn what it means for you and the comics you create.
