SEEING THE SEQUENCE: A LITERATURE REVIEW ON COMIC BOOK READING
MetadataShow full item record
Comic book reading is a multi-modal experience that requires visual and textual processing. While these two modalities on its own have been subject to abundant research and experiments, the two modalities combined have not. In this literature review we seek to find in more detail how humans navigate through comic book pages and how the content of a page influences the reader’s eye movements. Certain layouts of comic book pages influence the reader’s way of navigating the page. Faces and text are able to draw the attention of the reader since these components of a comic book page are highly salient. Using the findings of the reviewed literature, a preliminary framework for a comic book eye movement predictor and a comic book generator is created. This reveals a necessity to create a more precise model of comic book reading, for which a research proposal is presented.
