Abstract
The general term of ‘comics’ covers any sequence consisting of interrelated combinations of pictures and text. Comics either appear as regular features in printed media (the so-called ‘comic strips’), or as the content of comic magazines and comic books. Like normal text, comic panels have to be read in sequential order. To create coherence within the story, the author uses what is called a ‘chain of reference’ that will enable the reader to recognize the different panels as narrative elements of the same story. Among the narrative means proper to the comics genre, we find first of all the so-called ‘balloons’, pieces of text that are visually linked to a particular agent or other element in the story.
