This essay explores the powerful ways in which Lynda Barry intertwines and juxtaposes text and image, creating rich layers of association. There are startling narrative twists, stretches of hilarity, and an overlaying of poignancy and poetry. Her multi-sensory coupling of image and text often leads us to see both social and political issues in an entirely new way, and offers a profound challenge to the status quo. This exploration of Barry's work draws upon the work of theorists who have investigated text/image relationships and comics, such as Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and David Carrier's The Aesthetics of Comics.
