Möbius strip

we've talked with Bungy some time ago about infinite strips. so these can be strips in a circle form, or gif's consisting of series of pictures without a "central" or "last" one. the Möbius strip is just an example of infinite comics, we certainly find different meanings of the term (comics that can be read again and again, understanding the world as a comic strip, comics that were not finished yet and many other ones).

also please take a look here:


  1. I've been thinking about this one all day. You make me want to make one. I wish I could hold this one.

    I am fascinated with structures and mechanisms that would allow you to loop a comic.

  2. wow, thank you so much! I've made about 15 of these, all with a very simple action, for example a two girls chasing each other, or thoughts that go around (something like "there is a hole in the bucket").

    if we could just have a sculptor make such a strip, it could be a monument :]

  3. John Barth wrote an experimental short story (published in Lost in the Funhouse) in the '60s, designed to be cut out of the book & glued to make a möbius strip.

  4. great! I guess the idea of "cut out and glue it yourself" could be used in publishing comic strips as well.
