Martin Vaughn-James, page 16 of “The Projector.”

My article entitled “Explain Yourself: The Projector (1971) by Martin Vaughn-James” appears in the recently published Fall 2013 issue of the International Journal of Comic Art. http://www.ijoca.com/  Drawing from one of two case studies in my soon-to-be-completed master’s thesis, this essay looks at a pioneering “visual novel” by the English-born artist Martin Vaughn-James (1943-2009). The Projector was created by Vaughn-James when he was living in Toronto, and was published by that city’s legendary Coach House Press. My article examines the ways in which this almost completely forgotten comics masterpiece reflects contemporaneous literary and media theories, encouraging readers to actively participate in constructing meaning out of its non-linear, at times highly abstract narrative.
