“Iron Man” black and white pages…

Below are pics of a series of prints based on full page layouts of the Iron Man comic book I have been working with for some time. All imagery has been removed with only the frames and solid black talk bubbles remaining. All 23 pages of the original comic is printed with silkscreen on grey BFK.

The white rectangle is representative of the original page; 10″x6.5″. I used two halftones in this series; dot and linear. These two halftones coincide with the two story lines that appear in the original book. Pages 1-11 utilize the dot halftone and represents the first story. Page 12 is a transitional page, so that print utilizes both the dot and the linear halftone. Pages 13-23 use the linear halftone and represents the second story.

I wanted these prints to talk about the decisions comic book artists make regarding the layout of the page, and how that relates to story telling in comics. Click on any image below to see a close up.
