"Well of course it matters when- …Oh my God. Wait a minute. You children didn’t even see the flag as a black man being hanged by white people, did you?"- "No." - "Why, that is- that is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. Don’t you see? All this time I thought these little crackers had turned racist, when actually they were so not racist that they didn’t even make a separation of black and white to begin with. All they saw when they looked at that flag was five people.”

One thing I don’t undertand in comics is characters talking with their mouths closed. You see it all the time in mainstream books. I’m certain there’s a point when I was drawing comics that I flipped from not even thinking about the closed mouth talkers (my early stuff is full of them) to really hating them. It completely punctures the reality of a panel for me if someone’s talking with their mouth closed.
This drives me crazy! A speech bubble floating above a character’s head, and he or she has their mouth shut. Don’t do this! It loses the immediacy of the dialog when the mouth isn’t open.
I’m only bothering to comment because I’ve seen this post three times already, but I feel that it’s okay to have a character “speak with their mouth closed” if it fits their personality (ie stoic) or the mood of the moment (ie calm). Just putting down a blanket “don’t ever do this” statement irks me, because no matter how reasonable the rule is, there will always be a time when it’s permissible or even advisable to break it.
the great thing about art, especially comicing, is that rules exist, but can be broken as the scene or effect determines. the above drawings themselves express two different attitudes.
