Rex Morgan, M.D., 7/13/04

For my money, Rex Morgan has the best art of all the soap opera strips. It’s very cinematic. The “camera” is always swooping around extremely dramatically, as it does here, from far to near. I like how the close-ups are always at strange angles, often cutting off part of the characters’ faces. This dramatic perspective is appropriate for the current storyline, in which our heroes are trapped in a cave that’s menaced by rising floodwaters, but trust me, when the strip takes weeks to discuss medical malpractice insurance, the art is exactly the same.
