Short summary
This paper investigates the potential of comics in more-than-human geographies, arguing that graphic narratives emerge as productive tools to reveal the in_between of humans and nonhumans. It further describes an exemplary approach to a collaborative comic and how visceral or nonverbal aspects in human-animal relations can be expressed and experienced, using the empirical study of returning wolves to Switzerland.
