Neil Cohn’s book “The visual language of comics:introduction to the structure and cognition of sequential images” is based on linguistics and cognitive psychology theories. Cohn “..explains how cross-cultural differences arise in diverse visual languages of the world, and describes what the newest neuroscience research reveals about the brain’s comprehension of visual narratives.” If you are interested in how language works in the world of comics, read this book! Do also check out his Visual Language Lab website.

Cohn also gave a talk entitled “The Visual Language of Comics: What comics can tell us about the mind (and vice versa)” at Berkeley School of Information and you can watch it here.
