Sometimes you can "tell" one version of a story while "showing" another, to show that the teller is lying or better, that the person is unclear on the truth.[/INDENT]
I also like when there's two scenes happening simultaneously and the narration/dialogue from one scene overlays onto cut shots of the other...I think it shows up more in cinema than in comics but one comic example of what I'm talking about is in Watchmen when Dr. Manhattan is being attacked by the media and it's alternating with scenes of Nite Owl and the Silk Spectre fighitng thugs in the alley. It's awesome how the captions in the alley fight are actually from the Dr. Manhattan scene but they still seem to apply the the fight as well. I love it.
