Motion lines encourage the reader to ‘[call] up personal references to action – blurred mental pictures of objects in motion’ (Taylor 2001: 46) or, more properly, of the background scenery in motion when focusing on an object moving with the viewer through space. In comics, motion lines lead the reader’s eye to the focal object, precluding perception of a background. In these respects, motion lines are a visual metaphor for a first-person embodied perspective, supporting the link between real-world experiences of motion and their depiction on the comics page, thus ‘imitating [and] exaggerating reality’ (Eisner 1996: 1–2).
