You know that type of laughter that starts off as a small chuckle but kinda builds up inside your throat, eventually mounting into a full blown, bent over yourself, holding your stomach as you guffaw uproariously?Yeeeep.

this should be a sculpture about the human condition entitled ‘Unbridled Optimism Meets An Uncaring Universe’

There are photos that tell a story, then there are photos that tell a story.

No entanto, aqui começamos a aproximarmo-nos daquela questão de a banda desenhada poder “pensar”. Isto não tem nada de místico. É apenas uma forma de entender que, e citamos Ernst von Alphen, que “a arte na sua especificidade histórica engendra questões gerais, transhistóricas e filosóficas”, ou por outras palavras, ela pensa. Uma das maneiras de entendermos a integração da banda desenhada, ou se preferirem alguma banda desenhada, no campo da “arte” encontrar-se-á menos em considerações formais ou mesmo sociais, mas antes na sua “autonomia”, não no sentido em que seria independente do seu contexto (pois nada nunca o é), mas antes de possuir uma agência própria. De novo, Alphen: “Essa agência muda a natureza do enquadramento em relação à arte. Se a arte ‘pensa’, e se o espectador é compelido, ou pelo menos convidado a pensar com ela, então a arte não é somente o objecto enquadrado - o que, obviamente, também é verdade e importante - mas também funciona, por sua vez, como um enquadramento de pensamento cultural” (Art in Mind).
