Fields and Diagrams

Austin linked to this screencast by Dave Gray “Forms, fields and flows”. Watching it, I realized how little comics take advantage of “fields” that are not or a kind of pictorial perspective type nature. That is, you don’t see many charts, graphs, maps, diagrams, etc. I guess that type of image/panel would step outside the conventional sense of following a narrative, outside the mimetic illusion. Might a diagram or chart be as effective a conveyor of narrator information as an image of a character or setting or object? Something to consider for later.
