Comics Techniques and Tricks: Revealing Word Balloons

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?
