Introduction

Comics Assignment Task 1 There are many forms and conventions of comics, some of these include thought bubbles, speech bubbles, text boxes, emotion words, movement lines, frame links, sound words, which are also called onomatopoeia, colour, ellipses, the language used such as short and direct and blurry lines. Blurry lines suggest fights; colour makes the comic bold and lively: frame links are placed between frames to help the reader understand events which may have happened after the last frame and before the next one: Movement lines give the impression of movement by adding small lines around the edges of characters bodies and moving objects: Emotion words are like sound words, but comics also use words to show exactly how a character is feeling: Text boxes are small boxes that give details that would be hard to show in pictures alone: Speech bubbles are words of speech placed in a bubble pointing towards the mouth of the character who is talking: Thought bubbles are like speech bubbles but the words are ...read more.

The characters are presented as simple and innocent. The audience that the story is targeting is children between the ages of 5-7. There is also another story on the page, called 'The Moonbeans'. The main outline of the story is that the mummy and the baby go out and mummy buys the baby an ice-lolly. Then the baby goes to throw the rubbish in the bin but it falls over on him and he gets covered in paper. The story is presented to the reader in a storyboard. The comic features that are present are motion lines. The motion lines show that the baby moonbean is jumping. The characters are presented as innocent people.

Conclusion

Secondly, the actually story is much more complex to read as there is a lot going on within each box. Task 4 In my comic 'Environmental Man' I have used many features. Some of these features include: speech bubbles, thought bubbles, frame links, text boxes and sound words. I used speech bubbles to show what each character is saying. I used thought bubbles as you can show what the character is thinking as you cannot show how someone is feeling in a picture. Frame links are used to help the reader understand events that may have happened after the last frame or before the next one. I used text boxes to show what I cannot show in a picture. I also used sound words to give the impression of sounds. My narrative appeals to a modern day audience as it uses modern day language. My target audience is children between the ages of 10-14. I chose this age group because they enjoy reading comics a lot, and the situation that is in the comic is one of which they are able to change. ...read more.
