Interrogating Dialectics of Comics Form: Stefanie Leinhos

In Stefanie Leinhos' Is There Something I Should Know (2013), the same half-opened curtain is repeated again and again for the entire publication. The curtain is opening, so the reader expects the movement (action) to proceed, but the repetition of the action converts action to the inaction, because the curtain stays the same.Against the reader's expectation of the passage of time reading panel by panel, the repetition of the image resists the progression of time.
