Description

Don’t all comics tell stories? How can a comic be abstract? Luis Alegre plays with the possibility of comics which tell no stories other than those that result from the transformation and interaction of shapes across the page. Reduced to the most basic elements of comics — the panel grid, brushstrokes, and colors — these abstract comics highlight the combination of abstraction and sequential art, resulting in work that is often surprisingly humorous or emotionally disturbing.
