4CP | Four Color Process

"All I see is little dots."  - Talking Heads

The scans on Comic Book Cartography come from vintage comics because we love dots as much as we love diagrams. We love the cheap old four color process – which was simultaneously the barrier we struggled to see past and the space where every comic book frame opened up into infinity.

The four color process is the white noise of comics, full of hidden messages, revealing pocket universes.

Comic Book Cartography has spun off a second gallery, dedicated to these pocket universes. Dot fetishists are invited to join us at  http://4cp.posterous.com/
