Breccia page 4, no cliches

Breccia's page 4 of Algeria

 

Breccia doesn’t show us what we know. He uses shell casings to make the transition from Ahmed’s face across into the montage, into the past. Shell casings to direct the eye in from the right and focus on the monster face.

Shell casings to be horizontals that hold the diagonals of the montage together. The diagonals that focus on the soldiers back, the x of his straps crossing with the shell casings to wedge your eye in and hold it

Have you ever seen a story with shell casings made an important part of it?
