Not only has comic book culture become mainstream culture, but now comic book thinking is becoming the mainstream thinking of tomorrow, according to Fast Company:
“What matters is clarity,” says Scott [McCloud]. “And clarity depends on the choices you make. You must make five key choices when showing and telling any story: choice of moment, choice of frame, choice of image, choice of word, and choice of flow. That’s it.”
From a leadership perspective, choice of moment is perhaps the most critical in creating clarity. Choice of moment is about deciding which moments to include in the story and which to leave out. “So much of it is about editing,” Scott says. “You can spew, but you have to edit. Pull out the long knives, folks. William Faulkner had it right when he said that in writing stories, you have to kill your darlings.”
Okay, TED Talks. Now I want to see you bring in all manner of comic book creators talking about non-comic book topics. You can do that, right…?
