To celebrate the one-year anniversary of 4CP, HiLobrow invited guest curators to assemble themed comic-book-detail galleries from 4CP’s collection. Click here to see all galleries.
CURATOR: DANNY FINGEROTH
I picked images that were enlarged enough to make the color-dots come alive. The enlarged art reminded me of using a kind of mini-microscope I had as a kid that enabled close-up looks at comics, clothing fibers, skin, etc. I realized that some of the shots I had selected could also tell a story, so those were the ones that made the final cut and were then arranged in the order as presented. A different ordering would tell a different story. Just call me Pudovkin!

What do you think?
I love to see 4CP images stitched together into little narratives. I did this once on the blog, with about 10 images telling a story called “The Lost Weekend,” but I got cold feet and deleted it! Here’s a new 4CP post to say thanks! http://4cp.posterous.com/love-story
