White Space

I'm just going to post this page from Three Shadows, becauseI feel it is particularly fascinating the way that Cyril uses white space here; where the first and the last panel on the page aren't in boxes, but just coming out of the picture to interact with you directly.

You almost feel like that milk bucket is going to bounce out of the frame and end up at your feet instead of staying in fantastical pastoral pseudo-France/Portugal. 

Isn't that cool?  It's not a technique I see all that frequently in comics, and this makes me think that it'd be good if it was around more.

Three Shadows it one of the greatest comics :01 or any other company has put out in the last decade (and that is saying a lot). I feel like it doesn't get even a sliver of the recognition it deserves. Will you be publishing more books by Cyril?
