The emergence of the comics medium as part of modern visual culture has posed several questions for anarchists engaged with the arts: to what extent can comics be regarded as “popular” culture in the substantive sense that an anti-authoritarian politics demands? What features of the medium present openings or obstacles for anarchist cultural interventions? This essay examines a range of historical responses to these questions in terms of four dimensions of the comics medium: caricature, the word/image blend, narrative, and spatiality.
