New Sequart Book Analyzes Comics Film Adaptations

Sequart Organization is proud to announce the publication of Moving Panels: Translating Comics to Film, by Logan Ludwig.

Are comics just movie storyboards that are too expensive to ever actually commit to celluloid? Are movies just comics with added motion? These two media have become more closely tied in recent years (thanks to a bevy of comics adaptations), and they seem naturally related. Both are comprised of visual storytelling techniques that would seem readily compatible, but are they really that similar?

Moving Panels: Translating Comics to Film digs into this issue by analyzing, through careful examination of aesthetics, just how linked and distinct the two media are. By looking at the film and comics versions Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Persepolis, Watchmen, and Sin City, Ludwig dissects just how the two media interact, their respective strengths and weaknesses, and how similar they really are.

The book runs 144 pages and is available in print and on Kindle.
