Abstract
This study aimed to determine whether a genre in the comics influences the visualization of the existing design on the comic. The description analysis used as the method of this research. This study investigated each of the two comic examples in each comic genre; romantic, comedy, and horror through the design elements of color, illustration style, and layout. The results showed that the genre affected the color and style of the image on the comics, while the layout and frame size taking were the creation of the comic creator itself. This was because the color and style gave the right nuance to the readers in following the story line. Illustration styles, though influenced by genre, were also supported by creativity of comic creator. Meanwhile the layout was the creativity of each creator in managing comic sequences to guide the readers in the reading sequence. While the frame size taking determined by the creator were to indicate and to show what were the important points in each story panel. The genre was the first priority in making comics especially on the digital comic, because the genre influenced in determining the nuances in the story.
