This particular sequence in Yotsuba in which depicted action is omitted inb/w panels and then later referenced and serves as a punchline (usually prompting the reader to go back a few pages and notice the location of the ladle through the pages) is a nice spin on certain techniques (and also subversive in a sense of how they are taken for granted) and reminded me of this lecture on visual composition and technique that Kransom & SDS translated by Kumi Kaoru.

The lecture is actually primarily concerned with the manga edition of Nausicaa and in some way is a follow up to certain previous lectures looking into why Nausicaa is difficult to “read”, though it actually does feature panels from Yotsuba (as well as a host of other great comics.)

If this stuff is interesting to you, you can read the lectures here:

Like a monolith, the formidable witzend box set rises from the corner of our desk. With two hardcover volumes in a slipcase collecting the complete run of Wallace Wood & company’s landmark anthology series, featuring incredible artwork and scintillating stories from a murderers’ row of creators, it’s a monumental package, a must-have for the comics cognoscenti, and a guaranteed toe-crusher if you drop it on your foot.

This bastion of freedom of expression and independence from commercial and editorial restraint should be on shelves before Independence Day and available through our mail-order a bit sooner. If you haven’t already, browse our enormous preview and reserve your copy, right here, today!
