Emerging forms of comics, such as comics poetry, multi-layer, experimental, abstract and digital works have significantly expanded the landscape of contemporary comics. Despite this creative evolution, comics scholarship continues to be dominated by narrative analysis that favours semiotic, prose, film and cultural studies over formal foundations of the medium (Gardner 2011). As a result, many emergent forms of comics, especially in the field of abstract, experimental and comics poetry have been ignored. Until now, a comprehensive theory capable of analysing both narrative and non-narrative comics has remained elusive. Accordingly, this study draws on Rachel Blau DuPlessis’ formalist strategy of ‘segmentivity’ to move beyond sequential definitions that preference narrative components over all other features of comics. Through a model of segmentivity, it is possible to construct and critique comics as an assemblage of segments that communicate in multiple directions, for both narrative and non-narrative means.
