Vids I Dig 138: Strip Panel Naked: Analyzing the Art of ‘The Killing Joke’

From Strip Panel Naked’s YouTube description: On this episode I wanted to try and approach the ending of The Killing Joke by Brian Bolland, Alan Moore, John Higgins and Richard Starkings, and see if I could peel back some of the art.

From Strip Panel Naked’s YouTube description: On this episode I wanted to look a fight sequence from Hellboy, The Wolves of Saint August, and look at how Mignola, Sinclair and Brosseau tackled it. On re-reading the Hellboy Omnibus, this sequence struck me in particular because of it’s starkness in contrast to the rest of the standalone issue, and the striking use of yellow in one of the final pages. So I explore a little of the craft behind it, and what makes it work in context.
