Easy Pieces Stretches the Definition of Comic

Even if I don’t immediately warm to the subject matter, I have a fondness for works that play with formalism and make me ponder how we define comics. Neil Dvorak’s Easy Pieces is the latest example. Eschewing the paneled page, he’s posted a set of short pieces that ask philosophical questions, executed as single line-art images symbolic of his text ponderings. It’s all rather mind-boggling, yet certainly, as a combination of art and words to convey a message, it’s all still comics.
