That page reshuffles a ‘deck of comics structures’ – for example, you can end up with a series like this:
While many of these are easily applicable across mediums (reveal #9, say) there are others more specific to comics like reveal #7. I think IF has its own structures (or building blocks of structure if you will) like this, but I’m not sure what they all might be. Some examples might be:
Clear the screen
Use a quotebox
Switch player PCs
I think it’s OK to be fairly loose in the definition of what a structure is.
Of course, there is an important difference here too – IMO the author shouldn’t rely on specifying a linear sequence of structures. However that isn’t a reason not to enumerate the structures available, since the author certainly can create situations and processes that lead to planned sequences of structures.
Anyway, can anyone help to think of more of these little things?
