As Scott McCloud pointed out in his brilliant book, Understanding Comics, which I have given away many, many copies of, all the action in comics happens in between the panels. That’s why comics are an art form. Because in panel A something happened, in panel B something happened but it’s what happened betweenA and B that changed your mind about anything; the actions in your head.
