“The ambiguous function performed by captions is also explored in Dario BOEMIA's research on the graphic novel. Indeed, nowhere more than in comics is the (never fixed) relaying function of captions and balloons within and in relation to the drawings shown. In comics, the story emerges from a constant renegotiation of meanings and roles between pictures and writing, hence producing a complex semiosis that plays on space and temporality, narrating/narrated voices, visions, thoughts, imagined utterances and actual dialogue. Boemia analyses these dynamics in a page from Zerocalcare's Forget My Name (2014), demonstrating how also in the graphic novel narrative and cognitive meaning may stem from an unexpected swapping of roles or from the intrusion of captions and pictures into each other's space. Indeed, as also seen in the previous studies, one of the most interesting ways of showing the interplay between images and words is by getting them to trade places.”
