This chapter expands the scope of clear line. Most studies of clear line focus on the overwhelming influence of clear line on European comics, but this essay claims that there is a sensibility to clear line that has made its way across the Atlantic, to Yang, a Chinese-American cartoonist. By placing Yang in this tradition, the essay is able to explore the representation of violence and stereotype from a position that illuminates both Yang and Hergé.
