Moebius & Jodo, Incal

A sly and graceful application of the unique tools of the medium by Jodorowsky and Moebius. Comics simulate the passage of time through sequence. The images themselves are out of time, static. The experience of time is generated by the reader via the navigation of the eye through each image and from one image to the next. Using the framing and composition of the panels, Moebius prompts the eye to move in a vertical progress, and maps each “beat” of the sequence along that path.
