Publisher: DC/Vertigo
Description: While color itself can carry meanings, lack of color can be just as important. On page 73, the main character Gwen Dylan experiences a flashback. This change in time and space is indicated to the reader through a sudden shift into balck and white. This sudden departure from the color of the rest of the book sets the flashback visually apart from the rest of the narrative. Like a photograph, the muted panels suggest that the action they hold occurred in the past instead of concurrently with the rest of the story.
