Abstract

This essay argues for the adoption of a neologized vocabulary aimed towards promoting a more nuanced and fluid discourse on the relationship(s) between comics and other art forms. Just as comics studies has benefitted from borrowing from the theories and methods of parallel fields, this essay contends that this interdisciplinarity can be productively inverted, and that the theories and methods of comics studies can be utilized in "non-comics" disciplines. Towards this end, texts ranging from the silkscreens of Andy Wahrol and Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class are examined using a comics theory lens, which proffers original insight into their form and meaning.
