Combustion: Publication and Exhibition

Combustion is a wordless graphic novel published by Fantagraphics Books, 1999. It’s the story of a soldier lost behind enemy lines.

Original artwork from Combustion was shown in the exhibit Silent Witnesses: Graphic Novels Without Words at The Collection, Linconshire, England, 2010. From the press release:

This exhibition brings together the work of internationally recognised artists and illustrators from around the world working in Graphic Novel form. Spanning publications from the early twentieth century to the present day, the works contained in the exhibition are distinct in that all use the capacity of images alone to communicate narrative, functioning entirely without the use of text.
