Book Review: Abstract Comics

Abstract Comics

After a visit to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, I realised I'm not a big fan of abstract art. Getting Abstract Comics confirms it as a fact.

The comics here resemble IQ quizzes that test the ability to recognise patterns. But they are more difficult here — insanely difficult — as they replace simple geometric shapes with abstract comic lines, colours and collage. Solving them will no doubt provide tremendous pleasure but there are no answers given, of course. I've no luck distilling any meaning from most — only had one or two "Eureka!" moments.

If you can appreciate abstract art, this book might be for you. If not, stay away.

This art form probably appeals to those who already appreciate in the first place.
