Abstract Comics? Don't all comics tell stories? Well, as it happens, beginning with the experiments of Saul Steinberg, through some of the more psychedelic creations of R. Crumb and Victor Moscoso and with increasing frequency in recent years, cartoonists and other artists have played with the possibilities of comics whose panels contain little to no representational imagery and which tell no stories other than those that result from the transformation and interaction of shapes across the layout of the comics page. Graphically bold, surprisingly humorous and emotional.
