I was reading some material about the development of continuity editing during the 1910s and it occurred to me that comics probably had some effect on this.  However I can't find any material about such connections though my search was admittedly fairly brief.  Does anybody know of such work?  Comics historians are generally focused on visual print (typically starting Hogarth>Topffer>Outcault>McCay>the explosion) with comics-film influences generally seen as pure borrowings of image technique such as framing, angles, light.  Some of the earliest comics, such as McCay's Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend (film adaptation in 1906), were fairly static visually and can be taken as roughly parallel to tableau editing.
