2) VISUAL STYLE
Describe the visual style of “Jane, the fox and me”. (By visual style I refer specifically to the way that the artist of this work draws images stylistically, rather than any elements that have to do with its construction as a comic, such as panel arrangement, text/image relationship, etc.)
Compare this visual style to “Ice haven”, “The last Saturday’ and “Gasoline Alley”
Which is it most like (and explain why)? Why might the artist have decided that this visual approach was most appropriate to the narrative? Are there any ways in which this visual style is unlike?

Compare this to “Maus”, “A short history of America” and “big if” . Which is it most like (and explain why)? Are there any ways in which this book is formally unlike ?[Please note: When I refer to form, this can include any number of elements, such as overall structure of the book (is it linear? non-linear? flashback-oriented); type of narration (first person? multiple points of view? narrated in the third person?); relationship between text and image; approach to page layout; pacing; visual iconography; use of color/color palette; etc. You don’t have to use all or any of these, but whatever is relevant to the selected work.]
