Writing For Comics

by Entertain The Elk

In this video essay, Adam Tinius pays homage to Batman: The Killing Joke, illustrating how writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland brilliantly use scene transitions to hypnotizes the audience and enhance larger themes within the story. Although technically about writing, this video is also a great resource for understanding transitions in editing.
