This chapter focuses on the body in the text, specifically the animal body, and examines how comics summon the human in bestial form. It considers animals as subjects in comics in relation to the concepts of animality, becoming-animal, or animetaphor by analyzing graphic novels that perform the animal in distinct, yet overlapping sub-genres—humor, trauma, and Künstlerroman. It illustrates how the perdurable bodies of the exaggeratedly drawn and anthropomorphic creature are linked to the terminal fragility of the human. Two of the graphic novels discussed in this chapter are Gene Luen Yang’s American Born Chinese and David B.’s Epileptic.
