Comically Yours

“Most objective, yet didactic.
Most impassive, yet creative.

Comics have for years, enthralled the audiences by takes and double-takes of the polity and its likes. One way of expressing your strongest opinions without creating a flurry would be through comics.

I was going through “”The Essential Collection of Calvin and Hobbes”” when I read what Charles Schulz had to say. He said that contrary to popular belief the most difficult form of art was the one used for comics. After all a comic which is just capable of delivering the author’s view-point is no better than a soliloquy.

The creativity that goes behind contouring the milieu would be much intense than the one that goes behind the abstract. True, that abstract art (or the so called modern art) is considered by connoiseurs as only for the people who have the eye for it. But then isnt that one of the biggest drawbacks? Comics never target a specific set of people.

On a more lighter note, over the years I have realised that it becomes so easy to relate the comic strips to your daily life, thus pondering over the un-tread waters and thinking of the unthinkable.

Some of the personal favourites are (not necessarily in that order)

  • Calvin and Hobbes
  • Garfield
  • Peanuts
  • Executive Suite
