Comics and the Senses

Ian Hague asserts that comics is not just a visual medium and outlines the multisensory aspects of comics: the visual, audible, tactile, olfactory and gustatory elements of the medium. Dr Ian Hague is a Senior Lecturer and Year 3 Coordinator in Contextual and Theoretical Studies at London College of Communication (UAL), where he is based in the Interaction Design and Visual Communication Programme. His research looks at comics and graphic novels, and how they engage with questions of materiality and experience. Ian is the author of Comics and the Senses: A Multisensory Approach to Comics and Graphic Novels (Routledge 2014) and the co-editor of Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels (Routledge 2015), Contexts of Violence in Comics and Graphic Novels, and Representing Acts of Violence in Comics and Graphic Novels (both Routledge 2019) as well as numerous shorter pieces.
