Batman SNOW 193 page 16

Page 16 The structure of the frames on this page is part of the storytelling. The upper, vertical frames all have Dr. Fries at the control panel, where we see his gloved hands, the monitor, the pressure gauge, and his anguished expression. Then the two lower frames show the result of his manipulations. Seth’s curving “FUUUOOOOOOO-WWHOOOM” bursts out from the middle of the page and cascades down to the bottom frame where it falls out into oblivion along with the machinery of the cryonic lab. Words and pictures work together to show, not just tell the story.
