Several people have linked to Bully’s word count post, comparing a comic page then (1964) and now-ish (2001). I think most of them are reading too much into it (a position the author seems to share), because neither example make good comics. The ideal is a blend of words and pictures where synergy occurs, making something better than either taken separately.
Trends happen cyclically, and they’re usually taken too far before they swing back the other way.
Not only does he blend words and pictures very creatively, but he included one of my favorite Hulk sequences. Although I think he’s a bit hard on Clint.
