What is abstract sequential art? The paper contains answers to this question by defining this genre and scrutinizing the sub-genres of abstract comics and abstract polyptychs. Such information is useful to practitioners and teachers of fine arts and comics as it may provide other ways to understand how these two visual arts domains are similar yet different. Several theoretical issues are considered regarding the historical development of abstract sequential art, as well as the shared and unique characteristics of abstract comics and abstract polyptychs. These include: the use of panel transitions, the involvement of reader as co-creator, and the treatment of time within the genre. Representative examples of the sub-genres are analysed to help understand how artists use abstract polyptych mechanisms or abstract comics devices, which may generate new perspectives about teaching and creating abstract sequential art.
