Cognitive narratology states that the reader arrives with schemata, cognitive frames for a meaningful organisation of various interrelated concepts, based on previous experiences. However, the reader is also cued to perform a specific activity by the artwork. Reading is a dynamic and continuous process. Models, the basis of the reader's schemata, assumptions, inferences and hypotheses, are set up by both extrinsic and intrinsic norms. Comics readers use similar constructive procedures as in constructing reality from real-life perceptions, and narration should be understood as the organisation of a set of cues used in constructing a story. The close reading of a Flemish 1947-comic strip shows that even such a simple one-page gag can implement various strategies and formal organisations besides pure narration. There are many aspects and elements without any strict narrative function in comics. The whole of a narrative is far more than the sum of its events.
