Neil Cohn on Memory, Experience & Comics Comprehension

leave a comment »

Again, getting back to the idea of the passive/active – films/comics relationship, Neil Cohn further discusses whether the act of reading a comic is an act of conscious construction of semiotic experience or drawing on abstract concepts to formulate meaning.

Again, I am hesitant to accept that people are actually imagining sounds, smells, motion, etc. while reading a comic.

Get over to the article and get involved in the comments if you experience sound, motion or any other sensory input when reading comics..
