I had a really hard time, at first, figuring out how to approach these pages. They seemed flat, static. One of the other patrons felt the same way: I heard him telling a friend that he couldn’t really get into these pictures at all. We didn’t understand how they worked.
But somewhere around the third glass case, I got it. These were comics.
They weren’t even especially innovative comics! Their techniques would be immediately intelligible to anyone who read ’70s X-Men, or this week’s manga. But seeing the same time-shaping techniques in such an unfamiliar context made me consider whether comics weren’t the best possible medium for an apocalyptic text.
