Doom Patrol #14 page 2

Tip 9: Tilted planes imply movement.

On this page, where the "new" Doom Patrol is just getting their metaphorical sea legs, and everything is a little skewed, it is not only the planes that are tilted, but the shapes of the panels themselves are tilted. The tilt shows movement, but also off-balance-ness, and to me implies urgency. There is a monster in the background waiting to be brought under subjection, and this team has to figure out what their abilities are while the monster waits. The tilting planes indicate to the reader how unsure the outcome is.

I *love* the expression on the monster’s face.
Another mind-blowing page!
