Comic Book Grammar and Tradition


3 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Intended for study by comic book letterers, this is a catalog of the unique grammatical and aesthetic traditions inherent in the unique visual language of comics. Helpfully annotated with such advice as “A [balloon] tail should terminate at roughly 50-60% of the distance between the balloon and the character’s head,” and “There’s almost no plain bold in comics dialogue.”
