Asterios Polyp is certainly a 3deep5u book, so I have to divide my essay on the subject into separate essays. The three subjects are listed in the pic above, but just in case that disappears…
• Formalism with Subtractive Color: A look at how color is used in each section of the story to illustrate various narrative themes. Will include a look at each color in the palette used, although not all of them will be elaborated on.
• Shape the Characteristics: Breaking down the shape and line of each speaking character, and some thoughts on the meaning of every last detail.
• Panel Composition and Transitions: Much like my Scott Pilgrim VS The World essay, I’ll be looking at moments in the comic where the panel composition is especially note worthy.
