I recently saw the Diana Paintings by Titian at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Wow. If you haven't gone yet, go.
It took Titian three years to paint this pair in the 1550s.
Good comicbooks and Titian share something in common. Great storytelling. The Diana paintings are intended to be seen as a pair, side by side. Note, the stream that flows from one paining to another. Hint, the hunter doesn't appear in the second painting. Something happened. What? It isn't shown. Viewers have to imagine the action that took place between paintings, just like in comics. It draws the viewer/reader in.
One, go see Titian. Two, read "Understanding Comics" by Scott McCloud.
