And of course, a life-long love of French milk. Or, ask students to write a preparation plan for a natural disaster in the comic format. North 40, Issues 4-6 by Aaron Williams, illustrated by Fiona Staples Continuing where issue 3 left off (the initial three issue arc is reviewed on this site), Aaron Williams again deftly submerges the reader into his Lovecraftian epic.

In fact, “timing”—pace as well as duration—is the second of the unique ingredients of comic strip art.
