Sample text

Millhauser, writing about his fictional McCay, evokes a sadness that plays around the edges of the ephemeral escape that is the promise of the cartoon: “e animated cartoon was nothing but the poetry of the impossible—therein lay its exhilaration and its secret melancholy. For this willful violation of the actual, while it was an intoxicating release from the constriction of things, was at the same time nothing but a delusion, an attempt to outwit mortality. As such it was doomed to failure. ”57 McCay was a master of plasmatic possibility, but there were others.

Contained parcels of space become analogous to contained parcels of time. Marey’s single plates, by contrast, emphasized a temporal continuum, with the chronophotograph capturing instants along the axis of time’s arrow. ”6 30 DRAWN AND DISORDERLY Tom Gunning does not reject the distinction that Braun carefully draws, but he argues that she may be drawing the wrong conclusion. 7 ese are not the pictures of a neoclassical age, despite the semiotic cues that invite such comparison; people had never seen such pictures before.

It begins with a consideration of the strong resemblance between the photographic arrays of Eadweard Muybridge and the comics, a resemblance that hides the parodic relation that really holds between them. Chronophotography was easily aligned with the rational imperatives of modernity, mapping as it did the progression of a body at precise intervals through measured space. Comics, already a going concern in Europe, change in the wake of chronophotography, not only by becoming more attuned to measured intervals of time but by replacing orderly process with a comedic progression toward chaos and/or death.
