Comics, Jason Helms argues, are post-critical, reflexive, and figural, in that they combine image/text and visual/verbal elements in ways that illuminate a third, nonsymbolic rhetoric more appropriate for digital and heterotopic spaces. Blurring the line between form and content, Rhizcomics: Rhetoric, Technology, and New Media Composition offers readers a unique opportunity to engage in a rhizomatic alt-scholarship, in which the medium is the message. Rhizcomics manifests this ambitious concept by bringing together a variety of disciplinary traditions, from familiar continental theorists to ancient, modern, and postmodern rhetoricians, to comics and contemporary composition theorists. Helms calls for a decentering of typical binaries to form a rhizomatic approach to visual and multimedia rhetorics and uses comics as the main exemplar for the type of decentered writing for which he advocates.
