Super Heroes and Their Capes vs. Len and His Trench Coat

fu_run“Comic Books are static images trying to convey motions and movements, when you have an object that can convey such idea, it adds volumes to any images and turns them into actions, that’s why most of super heroes wear capes!” I didn’t make the connection until recently when I was lucky enough to hear comic book artist Phil Jimenez talk about his works and comic books industry in general. By using a simple piece of custom, artists are able to tell the readers which direction their heroes or villains are going or flying to as well as the urgency and emotion of the situation. So using that principle. Here is Len and Verona running with Len’s big trench coat acting as his cape. Times up Bad guys!
