Comic strips are the modern example of a combination of the sister arts. But in contrast to traditional pictorial arts, their ‘natural signs’ are abbreviations and reductions almost to the same extent as the text is. Robert Crumb’s Klassic Komik at first sight may not seem superficial, but rather a clever contemporary critique of an eighteenth-century text. Whereas Boswell’s text is often ambiguous and evocative, Crumb’s visual rendering offers a specific but constrained reading. The German translation of Crumb’s excerpts from Boswell by Harry Rowohlt further reveals how iconic ekphrasis tends to iconic ellipsis.
