This paper examines the role of design comics within business analysis. We first consider background to the use of comics within design work. This leads us to collate a number of advantages to using design comics as an intermediate and user-centric representation within acts of business analysis. We then describe our own use of design comics for making sense of socio-technical organisation and conclude with a discussion of the importance of comics within acts of collaboration between business analyst and organisational actors.
