NARRATIVE | Understanding Comics reading

Understanding Comics, pgs 60-73

In the reading it discussed the importance of interaction between the viewer and how the viewer creates closure. Closure is key for the viewer and has great significance when using time and motion. Which is important when creating a narrative. There are many different transitions that create closure to the viewer:

Moment to moment
aspect to aspect
scene to scene
subject to subject
action to action
aspect to aspect

These transitions are used between scenes of the narratives. These transitions in the narration help the viewer understand the parts that aren't actually shown.
