I have been working on this prompt very slowly for the past 3 weeks. Finally it is done.

I didn’t want my comic to be a shot for shot replica of the original film (there’s an essay in me about the differences between film/novels/comics/why I hate the 300 approach to filmmaking, but that’s another time). Therefore, it’s different.

My approach: I watched the scene frame by frame, pulled out keyframes, and otherwise retold the same action in a way that used a comic’s ability to vary the panel size/add color/exploit a background/manipulate font. What I learned: Hitchcock’s damned amazing in the nuances of how he frames each panel. I am not.
