This paper locates G. Aravindan’s Small Men and the Big World (1961–1973), a popular comic strip in Kerala as one of its kind in dissociating ‘comic’ from its mere lexical implications. Considering Aravindan a pioneer for recognizing the medium’s potential for narrative complexity as early as 1961 and conceptualizing issues which were deemed outside the scope of a so called ‘Low art’ medium, it seeks to explicate how the comic-strip space metamorphoses into a site where the cultural, political and the social mingle, reflecting and in turn shaping, discourses of an era.
