Adopting a diegetic and semiotic approach to multisensoriality in comics, Marco Pellitteri discusses the aural dimension of this specific art form. The workings of comics are traced back to Aristotle’s concept of noesis; the mental activity of reading comics, Pellitteri suggests, involves a willingness to actively conceive of images and ideas in one’s mind not least of which are those belonging to the aural dimension. To argue this point, Pellitteri concentrates on the comics medium’s layers of actual or suggested sensoriality and illustrates the sensorial suggestiveness of comics’ graphics by discussing the implied aurality of lettering, fonts, word balloons, visual onomatopoeia, and the representation of music.
