The potential expressiveness of a type of wordless comics is paradoxical. Having relinquished the medium of language, only the image, divided into narrative units on the page, is allowed to convey a semantic content to the readers, a content that may be greater than that of traditional comics, since the space cleared up by the absence of dialogue or narratorial comments allows the reader to find a foothold in the visual universes of Shaun Tan and Winshluss. The reader may thus appropriate both the image and the narrative, all the more relevantly as both works represent the process of transcoding experienced during migration and adaptation.
