Kirby!!!!



Found this on eBay. Look at the play of shapes and the directionality of the hatching from panel to panel. A perfect example of what I've been calling "sequential dynamism"--and a demonstration of how close action comics can come to abstraction.

    Kirby ? Abstract Comics ?! Yes, here, in one, or two, "planches" (=layers ?) from his story "the fourth dimension is a many splattered thing" (1957) : http://www.flickr.com/photos/81343857@N00/1439534877/sizes/l/
    And, here, the second "planche", a little less abstract… : http://www.flickr.com/photos/81343857@N00/1440395226/sizes/l/
