Abstract
This chapter examines sequentiality in comics theory in relation to Chris Ware’s comics and proposes a poetics of the diagram that draws upon information theory. It shows how understanding Ware’s comics as diagrams, including his graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, allows us to see how they function as puzzles to be solved. The chapter argues that Ware’s diagrams suggest new possibilities of metaphor, meta-narrative, and other more “poetic” devices for the still-developing language of comics. It also looks at a number of other cartoonists who have exploited the diagrammatic potential of the comics page, including Dan Zettwoch, Peter Blegvad, Posy Simmonds, and Kevin Huizenga.
