Title

Intertwined: Life and Death in Latino/Spanish Graphic Narrative

Abstract

I examine the portrayal of death in three graphic novels from Spanish-speaking countries: Daytripper by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, Julio's Day by Gilbert Hernandez and el Duelo by Esteban Hernandez. Each work resists the trope of death as a tragedy, ultimately offering a more hopeful understanding of it. Specifically, I analyze how the visual technique of braiding links various series of repeated images throughout each text that favors a non-linear reading, resists the finality of death and involves the reader in the act of narrative creation.
