I Can’t Stop Thinking – Defining a Comic Trail
Cartoonist and author Scott McCloud keeps on giving to the world of definitions. This cartoon trail provides an interesting perspective into how definition can evolve. It illustrates a Type 2 definition improvement (change in application) and as Scott says, "It’s as simple as B – C – A." (28 Panels) Other definitions: gradualism, distance pacing, narrative subdivision, window and page.
