More than anything else, I really love David Aja’s page and design sense in HAWKEYE #6. Alot of people have been fawning over it and I have to say this page pretty much blows my socks off.
Digitally speaking, I feel like quite a bit is lost aesthetically especially reading this on a laptop, but who can say about an iPad or any other device. Regardless, I feel like holding a physical copy of this page would be preferable over any other format.
From HAWKEYE #10 by Matt Fraction and Francisco Francavilla.
Digitally speaking this doesn’t quite work, because Francavilla’s panels want to bleed together so while reading this in Guided View it feels like I’m missing the flow of the page.
This point here, the one up top? That’s really, really, really true about New York. It’s probably really why I didn’t want to be there anymore, because it always felt like wheels spinning—the transitory nature of it rather than a stillness, creating a lack of appreciation—stimuli overdoses. Here I appreciate small things, like a one year old make a tour of a living room, making a fire, and even gardening. Sharing ghost stories with my class. It forces you to take a second and appreciate the silent moments rather than the shiny.
Things feel more permanent in the woods rather than Manhattan.
