Strip Panel Naked: The Considered Approach of 'Hulk'
Sometimes when you read a story, something sticks out at you. A page might feel weird, or a layout might seem odd and distracting. It could be that it's just a bad choice on the team's part in figuring out the approach to tell the story, or it could be an example like in the new Hulk book where it's very deliberately done for effect. Mariko Tamaki and Nico Leon have a very specific visual style for the majority for the book. It's not that it's simple, but there's an obviousness to it. It looks like comics. Some panels overlap, but there's a standard structure that doesn't look too unusual. Everything works on columns and rows, and it's fairly regimented. It all breaks apart in a scene with Jen in the lift.
