PIPE DOPE #129
First Previous Next
A couple of months back, I picked up all eight issues of Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiewicz's Elektra Assassin. Reading them was like having a fever dream on the astral plane--there are a hell of a lot of ideas at play in that miniseries, and I doubt I'll ever wrap my head around all of them. However, I have been thinking a lot about the lettering (by Jim Novak in issues 1-7 and Gaspar Saladino in issue 8), and today's panel struck me as a fitting opportunity to play around with breaking up the text in a similar fashion. (A Google Image search should provide a rough idea of what I'm talking about for anyone who hasn't read the miniseries.)
Pipe Dope's all about trying out new (for me, at least) things.
