Follow TV Tropes
How is this a YMMV trope?
Should this article include the fact that when reading a comic book, manga or illustrated novel, etc... your eyes see the full two pages at once unavoidably, and so if something shocking happens at the bottom of the right-hand page you can be "ruined" of the shock by seeing it before even reading the left-hand page? If we do add this, we should mention that many digital comics now have a "reading mode" where the comic is shown panel-by-panel to avoid this. Comixology has this as "guided mode". There's also motion comics that obscure details, have speech balloons/effects/etc pop in, etc to avoid this as well.
Also, would clever use of putting a "cliffhanger" at the bottom of a right-hand page, thus making you have to turn the page for the reveal be a part of this trope (a subversion/reversal or something like that maybe?)? Or is that another trope entirely?
Um, only if someone reads the entire page in one look. I don't think too many people do that.
Unfortunately, there is such a thing called peripheral vision.
Yes, but reading two whole pages in one go?
Not sure if this should be put in the description, anyhow. I wonder if Analysis/ is a better place.
(Mind you I have NOT seen the movie yet)
Seeing as World War Z had a solid opening weekend and a sequel is already planned I was thinking about how a planned sequel spoils that the conflict is not completely resolved in some movies.
