In chapter 3 of, "Understanding Comics," Mcloud talks about how people percieve , "reality" through faith. McCloud demonstrates this through his, "Peek-A-Boo," example. The example shows a women/mother, who is playing Peek-A-Boo with her child/you. In the first and second panel she has the cloth below her face, making us create closure in the gutter. We use our imagination to create that image in time where she has the cloth hiding her face. Closure is demonstrated when a person uses there imagination to fill the space and time between the two panels.

Chapter 3 was very interesting because it taught me something really fascinating about comics. I read comics a lot, but i never really thought of the process that it takes to read them as that crafty.


  1. This is a little light, Zach. Could you get more detailed in your summary? What about Ch. 4? And don't forget to proofread!

    Lastly, I really want you all to expand on your personal thoughts. They don't have to only focus on the reading. For example, how is closure used in your favorite movies, TV shows, video games, etc.?
