Welcome to another edition of Comics Techniques and Tricks, in which we showcase techniques that only comics can do! Click here for the archive!
In JUGHEAD WITH ARCHIE DIGEST MAGAZINE #106 (dated September 1991), George Gladir, Tim Kennedy, and Rudy Lapick give us a story where word balloons are shaped to reveal a character's actual thoughts.
I'm actually now wondering if there's any mileage into using a technique like this casually throughout a story, instead of using thought balloons or narrative captions along the lines of "I say it, but I don't really mean it."
What do you guys think?
