Programming with Grawlixes 2/ asemic writing in comics.

here's part two of my series on grawlixes and non objective drawing.


While I was working on this  I stumbled on some cartoons with asemic writing.
I think it is quite funny to see the different ways they are used to convey meaning.

Asemic writing as ‘bird sounds’.
 (peanuts; Charles M.Schulz)

Asemic writing as an interpretation of foreign language that the character can’t understand.
Bringing up father; George Mcmanus (1927)

 Asemic writing as alien language,
 apparently  an unknown frequency  for a different type of receptor

Mickey Mouse and Eega Beeva; Bill Wash and Floyd Gottfredson (1947)

Asemic writing as an indicator for brain damage, possibly in the brocca area, maybe Wernicke's aphasia where a person speaks normally but uses random or invented words; leaves out key words; substitutes words or verb tenses, pronouns, or prepositions; and utters sentences that do not make sense. (wikipedia)
Alley oop; V.T.Hamlin (1973)
