Comics and films share some narrative codes related to conceptual inferences and what Scott McCloud terms ‘closure’. Analysing both graphic adaptation and film, an expected finding is that Muth performs the adaptation sharing some techniques from the film of Lang, but also innovating in his own medium through the use of line, page layout and language. Furthermore, I discuss Linda Hutcheon’s theory of adaptation, by taking into consideration the narrative codes that film and comics share and the way both media perform an ‘illusion of movement,’ each one in its own way. The interaction between comics and ‘audience’ not only as readers, but also as spectators through conceptual inferences puts comics into a hybrid status between printed and shown media. Hutcheon asserts that comic adaptations should be seen both as ‘told’ and ‘shown’ media. The chapter engages semiotic analysis to explore the role of the reader that includes actively constructing the narrative of graphic media.
