It cannot be argued that creators are neglected, certainly not in comics scholarship’s rush to establish comics as literature, visual art, or its own specific medium. As the field discusses form, function, and definitions, creators are often integral to the conversation. Though this conversation is expanding in many directions, absorbing theories and methodologies from many different fields to great advantage, scholars regularly neglect the collaborative nature of comics. It is taken for granted that a “main” creator loads a work with meaning waiting to be activated by readers.
