Last year, Jamie S. Rich and I developed a series of blog posts to accompany A Boy & A Girl (Oni Press was planning to release it chapter-by-chapter online before the release of the GN). The posts weren’t used in the end, but I’d like to release this blog post (meant to follow chapter 2) and possibly one other because they discuss staging for comics. Specifically, how to handle a scene where the 180 degree rule and characters’ order of dialogue conflict.
Note: I know a lot of comic artists who feel that the 180 degree rule is more important in film than comics, and don’t let it dictate how they stage their comics. I think it’s a useful guideline and don’t break it unless I can’t avoid doing so.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER
That last part tho.

I fucking love this blog.
Are they all sex-related? No. Are most of them? No comment.
Send them to your loved ones, if you must.
I’m gonna cop to #12, which is fine because I think I’ll be getting #s 3 and 10.
If I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.

"Go Back To Where You Came From" (Australia 2012) - In this powerful series six ordinary people challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world, re-tracing the journey of asylum seekers. Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, the participants are forced to live like refugees. Eventually they find themselves ‘going all the way back’ to war zones that refugees have been trying to escape.
After 25 days, the groups meet for a final debrief with host David Corlett. Some have changed their opinions, some have not, but it is clear that regardless of their views, not one of the participants has escaped unaffected by this intense journey.
