Spaced Out. Spatiality in Comics

Space does for comics what time does for film.
McCloud 1994

How is space thematised and transformed, strengthened or weakened in the narrative comic? To what extent do comics rewrite and reinvent space by offering a place where spatial coordinates can be reconfigured in a utopian or fantastic manner? How does this reconfiguration affect perception devices? And again, how can the representation of spatiality in comics be modified within the network of the ongoing transmedia transformations?

Meanwhile, anti-refugee campaigns have gained traction in certain wealthy nations best suited to mitigate the suffering of innocent people. Though a refugee crisis of this magnitude and duration is rare on the world stage, such catastrophes are not new and, today, not limited to Syria.

In June of 2015, United States President Donald J. Trump promised to build a border wall to impede the passage of Latin American individuals into the United States. This pledge propelled his unlikely campaign. On September 24, 2017, President Trump signed a third attempt at an executive order that would institute a temporary travel ban on individuals from Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Chad. These are only two recent instances of political bans and obstacles imposed on travel.
