As I was finishing one series and moving on to another, it brought up an interesting topic in our house: What is your preferred comic style?
Specifically, do you gravitate towards:
more text and less images
a healthy balance of text and images
less text and more images
I’ve been reading multiple storylines and each has a very different pace and feel based on that core concept. Some characters even benefit from less text in favor of “reading into the illustrations”.
I would love to hear from other comic fans - compare and contrast the styles - from the publish dates to the heroes and universes themselves. Are there beautifully drawn books that you just can’t get into because of the writing? Do huge blurbs of context distract from your enjoyment?
What unique storytelling have you noticed and which do you prefer?
