Chapter 21, Page 13

Reread Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns recently. When I first read it, like 30 years ago, I thought, “This is the template for comic books from now on.” Maybe a bit of an exaggeration. Comic fans a few years younger than me would probably say Watchmen inspired them more. But anyway, I admired how he could tell so much story in a page. The average page had 12-16 panels, yet it never seemed cluttered. Of course, every once in a while, he’d throw up a big one panel page. Like this.
