English abstract
The paper looks at abstract meaning or references in comics to understand better the limitations for comics’ storytelling that might result from using higher forms of abstraction. The central question in this regard is, under what conditions the reading of sequentiality into juxtaposed images stops working. By looking at the related details of several examples, the features necessary for making images become a comic are reflected on. The narration of a comic is given in its sequence of images, in the interweaving of representations of forms. In a comics-context, the concept of formal or narrative abstraction could be understood as a lack of connections between the images. This is in essence the quality that has been described as ”non-sequitur” by McCloud (1993). But non-sequitur does not exist, really. Readers always construct meaning into sequences of images.
