This article discusses how the atrocities of war can be represented in comics. It is frequently stated that comics are affirmative or at best unable to show the realities of war. Analyzing three examples from three different times – 1918, 1951, 1992 – and from three different sources of printed media – a Sunday paper page, a short story from a comic book, a graphic novel – the article shows that the specific means of the mediality of comics not only address the question of war but also explore new ways on how to cope with war visually. The juxtaposition of word and image, the closure between the panels and the page lay-out as used in George Herriman's Krazy Kat, Harvey Kurtzman's Rubble and Jacques Tardi's C'était la guerre des tranchées, are ways of conveying ‘between the lines’ what war means, and that the meaning of war itself is a contested field.
