Looked up the tag “European Comics” on tumblr and (not surprisingly) a lot of naked women showed up…but isn’t that why we love them? The “Valentina” by Guido Crepax series barely counts as “comics” in my view, it’s certainly not narrative, but boy is the line work pretty.
Two days in to my theme week of and I’m already cheating! So not quite “action lines” but they do give the reader a great sense of movement. Both panels are from the awesome and trippy “Ultra Heaven” by Koike Keiichi.
Hans Rickheit is one of my favorite graphic novel makers. His panel flow is akin to film language, lyrical and well paced. His narratives are mysterious and beautiful in their own extremely dark and f–ked up way.
