Example text

Without the effort of amateur historians and collectors like Blackbeard, almost all the old newspaper comics of the early twentieth century would have been lost or, at best, available in the imperfect form of microfilm. Starting in the 1970s, Blackbeard used this collection as the raw material for his extensive editorial activities, resulting in the reprinting of more than two hundred books of such old comic strips such as Krazy Kat, Terry and the Pirates, Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy, and Tarzan.

For a single panel, the truck’s driver, seen from Jimmy’s supine perspective, is replaced by an image of the masked actor, his hair now white and his face rounded. On the following page—compositionally a nearly exact horizontal and vertical mirror of the first—the driver is pushed out of the frame by Jimmy’s father. Clearly out of breath, the older man huffs, “He’s mine . . He’s . . hmf . . hff . . ” (98) (see fig. 3). The moment is at first striking for the willingness of Jimmy’s father to claim the boy he abandoned, offering the possibility of reconciliation in and through crisis.

If superheroic fantasy is inescapable in comics—or the popular perception thereof—then fantasy itself must be turned to other ends. A possible approach is evident late in the text when Amy leads Jimmy through a set of pictures from the familial past they never shared. As they are removed from the jumbled boxes that contain them, each photograph neatly fills a comics panel (323–26). These recovered moments are thereby brought into the passage of time in the present, their spatialization animating them in relation to both their presentation and contemplation.
