1. The comic medium has an ancestor in cave paintings, and a brother in street art. This is why I named this blog “The Comic Cave”. The practice of communicating ideas through highly stylized pictures, codes, and symbols is the most ancient art form we know of. The creative impulse of which comics is a part transcends spoken and written language, so-called “high art”, and every other form of communication. In my opinion, anyhow.
