Abstract
This chapter examines Chris Ware’s graphic narratives in relation to a modernist aesthetic of fragmentation, the institutional maneuvers that sell comics, and Ware’s representation of the connection between comics as art and comics as a popular publishing industry. In particular, it looks at periodization and the ways comics complicate most conventional notions of modernism and postmodernism in twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature. The chapter argues that the characteristic ambivalence of contemporary graphic narratives about their status as productions of popular culture echoes modernist anxieties about literary value that reappear precisely at a time when graphic narratives are struggling to win literary respectability.
