Excerpts from an “abstract” comic – partly inspired by Tom Phillips’ A HUMUMENT, where Phillips painted over the pages of W.H. Mallock’s novel A HUMAN DOCUMENT, leaving some of the words visible to form networks of what could be considered “excavated poetry” from the original prose. In my case, I took some pages from a public domain AMAZING MAN comic, drew over them, scanned them, and removed the most recognizable narrative elements, resulting in a comic composed of action lines, blanked-out word balloons, and other graphic effluvia.
