Peter Schwenger writes on "Abstract Comics and the Decomposition of Horror" in the most recent issue of Horror Studies (vol. 2 no. 2, 2011), in which he discusses my and Alexey Sokolin's pieces in the Ab Cmx Anthology, as well as Henrik Rehr's Rejkjavik, part of which was also published in the anthology. The magazine's website is here, but I see they haven't yet updated to the new issue. In case you're an academic, I should warn you the journal is unfortunately not on JSTOR (unless I'm completely clueless at searching), but you may want to see if your school library is subscribed to it. (Or, you know, contact me...)
Schwenger's article adds to the growing mass of articles on our favorite subject here. In the last few months (and I don't really know which came first!) there have also been Jan Baetens' article in Substance, a chapter on abstract comics (not to mention further discussion throughout the book) in Thierry Groensteen's new book, and my own article on abstract comics and Ditko's Spider-Man in Randy Duncan and Matt Smith's new collection, Critical Approaches to Comics. I agree with some more than others (ahem...), but I love Schwenger's approach and his conclusions. I'll try to blog about them in more detail soon.
