Vary and repeat

I don’t understand a lot of Spanish, but I do have a pretty good idea of what this short comic by Venezuelan cartoonist and film maker Carlos Caridad Montero, is about.

What I particularly like about this short piece, is the fact it basically only uses four different images, but is still able to create a narrative experience through cropping, repitition and juxtaposition.  Additionally, the apparent contrast between the subject on the one hand, and the chosen images on the other, adds to the
persistent nature of the story.

Incidentally, I came across this comic through a Tweetscan I set up as an experiment.  It was only the first day I had it run, and bang, already a winner !
