This comic clearly appeals to a target audience aged between 5 and 11. We see a small boy talking boy, who is clearly the main character as he appears in the majority of frames. This would appeal to the 5-11 year olds as they will be able to identify with the key characters behaviour and actions
This comic is clearly aimed towards a male target audience. In this frame we see four characters, all of whom are male. A male audience would identify with and relate far better to these characters than a female audience. This comic is clearly aimed towards a white target audience. In this frame we see four characters, all of whom are white. A white audience would identify with and relate far better to these characters than an audience of a black or Asian background.
This comic clearly appeals to a target audience who are active and interested in adventure. In this frame the key character is pictured skiing, with the word ¶ZIP· connoting that he is going very fast. This is an adventurous and active sport and so would appeal to those who are interesting in extreme or active sports or like media texts with elements of adventure.
Conventions - Denotation/Connotation
The Zzzzooom! in this frame is sound caption. It is brightly coloured and very large connoting that it is a loud noise. This suggests that the character in the centre of the frame is moving very quickly.
The space around this frame is known as the gutter. This gutter is larger than the others in the comic and has a shadow in it behind the frame separating the frame from the rest of the comic. This connotes that the events in this frame are happening at a different time to the frames around them which are joined together. This split frame denotes the same character in a similar action in both frames. This connotes that the events are happening at the same time. The first one is a long shot which shows the action of the scene, connoting that he is beating everyone. The second split frame is a medium shot allowing the viewer to see the character·s face which connotes that he is excited to finish first.
This is a speech bubble. It denotes the word ´gasp!µ and is directed towards to older character on the right of the frame. This connotes that he is surprised or shocked at the actions of the other character.
