The article points out that most of the common theories on comics underestimate this medium. Understanding comics as a medium with a lack of whatever necessarily ‘forgets’ that comics are too much before they are lacking of something. Discussing an early sunday page of the Yellow Kid the essay shows in a condensed way the possibility of an aesthetics of comics that enjoy what is too much for most of the critiques and defenders of comics.
