What manga artist has the absolute best paneling?

I started thinking about it yesterday and I realized that's like an art form in itself, good paneling really affects the quality of the manga.
>>
ONE
>>
Tezuka. Tatsumi.
>>
Matsumoto.
>>
Kubo
>>
>>122926371
I have no fucking clue who might be better than who but it definitely adds a lot ot a manga, pic related or take any JoJo page and you'll see Araki takes almost every panel and cuts some of its corner, why? no clue but if they were all square instead I'm sure it would look different and feel different.
>>
Mizukami is excellent indeed, OP. Samura too.
>>
Choo-choo, motherfucker.

Takao Saito is among the best. His stuff could easily be used as a cinema storyboard.

Loved that manga. Matsumoto is a god, I swear. His paneling is always top tier. Very rarely matched.

On a related note, I think Asano Inio is overrated at times, but his paneling is really quite superb. Sometimes a little dense and subtle, and you miss a lot of the nuances if you read it fast, but he manages to jam a lot in there very efficiently and powerfully, while still creating a strong sense of flow.

Flow
Impact
Aesthetics.

Flow is how your eyes are directed down the page. Most important part, panels have to naturally drive the sequence of events in the right order. Poor placement makes you look at a future panel too soon or a past panel too late.

Impact, as in the way boundaries are modulated in order to emphasize and exaggerate. It's easy enough to create flow - look at any 50s comic book. Filmstrip style, all boxes, uninteresting but very direct and lucid. You have to rearrange them to make the important bits stand out.

Aesthetics, as in, independent of context, how interesting the panels look by themselves. Pic related is a great example

>>122931081
With a panel sequence like that you're supposed to look at them all at once. Like a panorama. It's not designed to give you a clear sense of direction, aside from top-down and left-right

the Yuasa and Matsumoto fanbases overlap pretty significantly. it's just this general holier-than-thou attitude of "artsy" fans that makes people who thought a series was just average or okay act as if it's the worst thing ever and spam that opinion to pester fans. I can relate to it; I haven't done it in like, 7 years though (and not for Yuasa or Matsumoto stuff).

you're perfectly capable of writing effortposts so why not actually explain why the paneling here >>122929838 is bad instead of just using a stock "heh. shounenshit." response?

Granted the simplicity works well with his works because the shots are made with an architectural focus so you end up with frames.
It goes back to the point of paneling needing to ft with your tone, style and the message you want to get across.

you're assuming that people can't post HxH and also more obscure stuff. having a kneejerk reaction like that to something popular being posted is exactly why there is a grain of truth to all the "hipster" claims directed at certain fanbases.

besides, not everyone starts off with the popular big fighting shonens and then 'graduates' from them, and most of the people reading them (kids and teenagers) don't take note of things like paneling. it's interesting when someone points out that stuff.

also, that particular image was never posted before https://archive.moe/a/search/image/mk4fFOQbUT4XbDIunFFy6A/

Theres no architecture in that page, what would be the point of posting that one beyond "fight scene"? It wouldnt have gone whith what I was trying to say.
Here, have a fight scene with some architectural composition in it. The architecture isnt in the architecture itself but in the way the geometrical elements like the shields and circles are composed in the page as a whole, in case youre wondering

>criticizing the way a page flows when the you're reading text that goes left to right instead of down

This irreversibly changes the way your eyes move around the page, you fucking tards.
>>
>>122931732
Because these two pages are symmetrical, along with the rest of the issue as part of a purposeful design.

The left and right sequence of panels both form three stages of an action, and in the context of the book, where Ozymandias is the closest thing to a superhuman, it forms a slow-motion sequence, as if we're actually looking at it in his perspective.
>why no change in perspective
The panels on the left slowly turn right in relation to the character, then the middle one completes the arc, while the ones on the right zoom in, then change the angle to the left. It's formed a 180-degree arc.

>no change of perspective
I expressed myself poorly. Sure we do change perspective, but it still feels like we're seeing everything from the point of view of a bystander. It's the lack of creative perspective in figures and the constant use of full shots/american shots that I mind. It feels flat. It lacks rythm.

I wouldn't say that; Japan is a small part of the globe and comics are a universal medium. their industry is particularly huge, sure, but I doubt it outweighs all the comics that could be considered "western".

a big issue with mainstream American comics, probably the biggest visually, is when genuinely good art is handed to cheap colorists to Photoshop some bullshit colors and shading over it because "shitty coloring is better than no coloring, I guess"

this is actually the best-colored scene in this entire comic because it actually uses different colors for the lights and shades. the rest is much, much worse and the colorist just airbrushed white and black as lighting/shading

Well I guess that page isn't bad per se but if you're going to do a half assed job at coloring maybe they should consider leaving it black and white.
This looks like they hired a great colorist but only allowed him twenty minutes per page.
