Shaun Tan’s wordless graphic novel The Arrival is full of intriguing ways to show, using still images alone, the passage of time. The top example clearly showed a passage of seasons. The middle the passage of a sea voyage. The last the passage of time in a tedious factory job. Each somehow expresses the character’s mood.
