Prompts for this Thursday

Option 1:  Identify and briefly describe a single component of McCloud's theory of comics.  You might, for instance, choose the triangle (see pages 51-57, etc.).  Use that theory (or element of a larger theory) in order to investigate Vertigo.  Here's what I mean:  you should have a single clear argument about Vertigo, which uses/extends/develops/alters some element of McCloud's theory.  Example:  you might use the concept of synaesthetics (123) to make a claim about how some of the more peculiar lines in Vertigo work, or what they mean (example - the first two images of the February section have odd and interesting lines).

Option 2:  I may, or may not, add a second option after class.
