Abstract:
I've recently been reading Hillary Chute's terrific Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics, in which Chute notes how particularly well-suited comics are for narratives of trauma. She observes that such works are "not only about events but also, explicitly, about how we frame them. The authors revisit their pasts, retrace events, and literally repicture them."
