Comic Book Analysis

I will be looking at the comic Boku no Hero Academia. This is the very first page from the most recent chapter, and from this single page, the comic uses many types of forms to help develop the comic. The artists use the gutters and negative tape to show that how important and how the boss acts towards the main protagonist. Also the artists use hatch marks and other symbols to help show emotion within the characters. Within the bosses face you see hatch marks to symbolize how filled with hatred he is, and how the lines on the main protagonist shows how fearful he is towards the antagonist. Even some of the texts and text bubbles give emotion within page. In the second pannel the bold text gives the reader a sense of how import it is, as well as the text bubble in the third panel, giving the character emotion in his voice. Also within the third panel their are some characters that some may not be able to make out what they exactly mean, but by how they are portrayed it seems like the boss is supposed to be frightening or looming above the main character.
