Ernesto Priego looks at a page from Sarnath Banerjee’s Corridor, where the Indian graphic novelist makes a portrait of the comic book artist as collector. The page describes the protagonist’s descent into collecting, integrating the collector’s body in the realm of other physical objects of symbolic value. In this post, Priego reads Banerjee’s page vis a vis Walter Benjamin, in order to discuss the role of collecting as a trope in comics textuality.
