Sorry many good examples i know. But that was the best one i could pull out.
Anyway the thing here is. There is more emphasis being shown on the characters actions moreover their heads and what they say. Something i agree with. Osamu Tezuka's mangas always had this sort of pacing. Its what made him a genius with his works.
- Good pacing is required for a good story. It illustrates characters' journeys, what they have to sacrifice and why, and their thoughts and feelings during their journeys. Sacrificing pacing for information or for faster conflict resolution would make for a more informative or simply shorter, but less interesting story.
On a completely different note, if I find a spelling error in one of the comics, do the Professors Foglio appreciate being informed of it before they publish, and how would I go about doing so?
