“The workshop was a wonderful experience in every single way. Getting to meet these young ladies and getting to share our story and sing with them was very rewarding. We learned a lot and we think the girls learnt something new as well”
Pages from Scarlet, written by Brian Michael Bendis, art by Alex Maleev.
It’s a truly stand-out comic that can turn something as basic as introducing a character’s back story, into a visually memorable sequence.
At first glace, it just looks like fifteen panels in standard layout. But it’s really fifteen snapshots of the defining moments and characteristics in Scarlet’s life to date. Note that the last panel of a Portland landmark, which breaks the rhythm established so far, is enlarged to emphasize the most telling quality about her.
