THE MARK IN AMERICA, ISSUE #3, PAGE 17
It just occurred to me that there are quite a few 3-tier pages in “The Mark In America”, to the point where one might assume that it was a premeditated stylistic choice on my part. I have no memory of this being the case; the preponderance of this seems to have evolved organically from the necessities of telling the story.
In this case the three long panels, each roughly the aspect ratio of a 70 mm film frame, give the page a cinematic feel, lending drama to what might otherwise be a series of boring expositional transitions. Each panel establishes a different location with figures shown mostly in medium distance to the camera, providing a metronomic feel, or that of a slow drumbeat cadence to a coming catastrophe.
This is page 17 for "The Mark" issue 3, volume 2, otherwise known as "The Mark In America", published by Dark Horse Comics in February 1994. Written by Mike Barr, Drawn by Brad Rader.
