Panels without any panels
Even when a comic page is just one picture spread without panel separation, there’s still the opportunity for timing and advanced eye movement that you can direct. These red circled areas are equivalent of in-cut comic panels, emphasising the act of violence of the battle. The crowd on this spread is intentionally coloured in monotone, enabling the composition’s centre to stand out in the lights of the rising sun. The red elements make it possible to anchor the secondary attention of the reader.
