Description

Your assignment is to critically analyze the comic book The Killing Joke and the animated movie.  The paper should be primarily focused on comparing and contrasting the comic book and movie. An academic approach is required to the paper.

Your paper should follow this format. Most of the information that follows is from a website called Comics Worth Reading. (http://comicsworthreading.com/how-to-review/)

Tell readers something of what the comic and movie are about but keep it brief (no more than a 5-sentence paragraph). Recommendations for or against a work should be based on the reviewer’s opinions and criteria, not the events of the story. A reader should be given enough information to determine whether she would find the comic and/or the movie interesting without her reading experience being ruined.

In the main body of the review, a reviewer should discuss what she liked and what she didn’t in regards to one or more of the following areas: writing, art, plot, character representation, storytelling, and entertainment value. Comments should be balanced; there is always at least one thing in any comic or movie that was well-done, and one thing that could be improved. Give examples. The reader should understand the basis for the reviewer’s opinions.Your assignment is to critically analyze the comic book The Killing Joke

All reviews should contain art criticism; one doesn’t have to be an artist to describe what one sees and give opinions on it. Do items and characters look like what they’re supposed to be? Do the panels or frames flow smoothly, supporting the story? Is the reader’s eye led in the right direction by the layout? Do the word balloons fit into the composition? Think about how the words and pictures work together to create the story.

The tone should be informed and intelligent, but not superior. Readers may be ignorant of the work, but they aren’t stupid. Keep the tone serious because this is an academic review.  Readers are interested in the reviewer’s reactions and opinions, and some personal information may be necessary to understand the reviewer’s perspective.Your assignment is to critically analyze the comic book The Killing Joke

Ratings are not mandatory. Some critics sum up their reviews with one, but other people find them unnecessarily simplistic. Regardless, they should match the comments given. The reader shouldn’t be left wondering why the rating is higher or lower than the rest of the review suggests. The scale should also be obvious and understandable, and the rankings should be consistent across reviews.

Include the following elements in your review:

  1. In the opening paragraph state the title, and BRIEFLY summarize the plot of the comic book.
  2. In the next section analyze the comic book and movie. Please use examples from the comic book and/or movie to support your analysis.
  3. In the conclusion, state whether or not you would recommend either or both to a friend. Provide evidenced reasoning as to why you would or would not recommend the comic book and/or movie and under what circumstances.
  4. There is no minimum or maximum page count. A reasonable estimate assuming normal formatting is a paper about 2 ½ to 3 pages long double-spaced. Please have a title page with your name, assignment name, and date.
  5. Please submit both a hard copy and upload an electronic copy to Moodle. The reviews will be posted to a website.Your assignment is to critically analyze the comic book The Killing Joke
