By utilizing edges of drawing with insignificant content,
the graphic novel approaches the reader to go into an alternate sort of
literary elucidation. The audience must
read the inscriptions of the edges and decipher this content inside the setting
of the framed workmanship. In spite of
the fact that the configuration and narrating vanity is to some degree
unoriginal, the execution is solid, making the book a decent prologue to a
genuine subject. Other media or any form
of literature may not be the spark to your world of imagination try a comic
book it may be the spark for you.
Also reading a graphic novel it’s doesn’t require long
readings. Unlike reading a novel that takes some time to read. On the other
hand a graphic novel not as much time used to read it. Another aspect that goes unseen is the panel.
It is referred to as individual pieces of artwork that make up a single page in
a comic book. A lot of graphic novels
use them differently some may use them to be iconic. According to how it is defined in
Understanding Comics it is any image used to represent a person, place, thing
or idea (1995, p. 27). Reading a novel
like Happy Porter doesn’t grab some reader’s attention because there’s no visuals
to make the connection to the setting of the story. So the reader’s imagination is only limited
too what they have read. The artwork on
page thirty-six of Gandhi: My Life is a Message is remarkably job of keeping a
reader’s eye moving through each page, and the art itself is lively.
The images give you an intense visuals and focus on plot
and characters, comic books can be much more engaging than other literary
media, such as novels or short stories. As defined by Scott McCloud in
Understanding Comics, closure is when you are observing the image but you use
prior knowledge to make a connection (1995, p. 63). Many readers of comic books must process different
components—visual, spatial, and textual—of what they are reading and the
components into one solid understanding of the story. They learn how to process
the information differently. Those
readers are fascinated with reading these books it actually involves a much
more complex processing.
I have a question for you
to answer yourself consciously. Do you
ever get tired of reading long novels and seeing the same old media? Honestly I don’t like reading them because as
the more I read the passages I become bored and loose interest. The other media
is some time flawed and has no benefits. I try my hardest to stay intrigued and
it always fail to grab my attention. In
class we’ve been reading graphic novels such as Understanding Comics by Scott
McCloud and Gandhi: My Life is My Message by Jason Quin. Not half way through the graphic novels and
I’m looking forward to finishing them.
Graphic novels are books that consolidate both content and
representation, the photos are orchestrated in boards while the content can be
either in discourse rises for exchanges or in a textbox for portrayal.
