  • Blurring the Margins: Ardalén (2012) and Coleective Memory in Spain

    • Authors: Sarah Dibble Harris
      Pages: 21 - 42
      Abstract: The title of Miguelanxo Prado’s Ardalén is a word invented by its author, but which refers to a real phenomenon: a long-distance wind that carries the scent of salt and sea far inland from the coast. In the fictional tale, this sea breeze carries with it not just air and smells, but also stories, as well as living sea creatures. Appropriate to its title, this winner of the 2012 National Spanish Comics Prize blurs lines between the real and the imaginary, between self and other, between land and sea, and between life and death. Blurry margins exist metaphorically in the book’s story as well as visually in its images, both within its panels and in its gutters. Drawing on Anne Whitehead’s recent discussion of modes of inscription and collective memory, this article explores the representation of memory and the fantastic in Miguelanxo Prado’s 2012 graphic novel Ardalén, noting the strong implications of Ardalén’s main character’s incapacity to distinguish between what he lived and what he heard in the context of the Recovery of Historical Memory in Spain’s early 21st century.

  • De anzuelos y espejos o cómo encontrar la salida al laberinto de la
           alienación

    • Authors: Esther Claudio
      Pages: 43 - 66
      Abstract: In El Martin Pescador, Luis Durán creates an interesting oneiric universe that reflects on power, identity, childhood and memories. In this article, I explore the topic of alienation through the study of the mirror and the maze as literary tropes. We start from a Lacanian study of alienation as lack, which sets the hero in a limited goods situation that triggers his journey. Through the analysis of formal features, symbolism and intertextuality in El Martín Pescador, I propose three types of mazes as a reflection of the hero’s itinerary within the city. This reading finally suggests that Martin’s alienation is solved by acquiring a metaphorical language provided by his journey through the oneiric world.

  • Fantasy and Irony in Cortocuentos, by Borja Crespo and Chema García

    • Authors: Juan Manuel Díaz de Guereñu
      Pages: 67 - 88
      Abstract: Cortocuentos is a series of short stories by writer Borja Crespo and artist Chema García collected into a book under this title. Another series was created in collaboration with other cartoonists and collected in a second volume. This study aims to analyze the collaborative project that was created by them, their forms, the resources employed and discarded by them, and how they treat the fantastic or marvelous topics by implementing lyricism and irony.

  • Lo fantástico en la interpretación actual del mito de Orfeo y Eurídice
           de Dino Buzzati Poema a fumetti.

    • Authors: Miguel Ángel Muro Munilla
      Pages: 89 - 112
      Abstract: El propósito de este artículo es estudiar la llamativa novela gráfica de Dino Buzzati (1906-1972), Poema a fumetti (1969), donde se trata un tema interesante en el ámbito de lo fantástico como es el del descenso a los infiernos, en una reescritura actual del mito clásico griego de Orfeo y Eurídice. Buzzati, maestro del fantástico en la literatura italiana, vierte el mito en cómic y lo impregna de la sexualidad y la angustia propias de la sensibilidad contemporánea.

  • «A Ghastly and Inappropriate Splendour»: the Fantastic in Dino
           Battaglia’s Comic Adaptation

    • Authors: Davide Carnevale
      Pages: 127 - 148
      Abstract: Within the sphere of Italian and European comics, too often disparaged and relegated to the margins of cultural discourse, Dino Battaglia is considered one of the great masters of what Pratt rightly called «drawn literature», one of the authors who most knew how to focus his artistic research and intellectual reflection on the absolute linguistic value of comics as well as on its otherness compared to the purely verbal language, reflection constantly addressed in his outstanding work. This is even more evident in the many adaptations of great literary texts which make up the bulk of his production, real rewriting which meant for Battaglia the ideal testing ground in which to focus on that stylistic tension, from the unusual design techniques used to a new concept of «architecture» of the plate, which supports the transposition from one to another code.The choice to «rewrite» a lot of the masterpieces of the fantastic genre may thus not be ascribed only to a mere personal preference: if by fantastic we mean along with Todorov a literary genre that makes hesitation and ambiguity its constituent elements, always poised between the adjacent categories of étrange and merveilleux, it’s clear that the translation into another language, precisely into that of comics, of the fantastic quid, will require different strategies to revive that vagueness that is essential to the representation both verbal and figurative of the uncanny, sooner than the presence of specific issues and distinctive semantics. The work of transposition that the Venetian artist performs in the last period of his career on several stories by Edgar Allan Poe, one of the most representative author of the nineteenth-century tradition of the genre, therefore proves paradigmatic of this stubborn linguistic research. Therefore, through a detailed comparison with the original texts of Poe, the present study will detect the formal and representative technical strategies used by Battaglia to recreate in the language of comics the disquieting inexplicability that makes his «drawn stories» authentic fantastic works.

  • Refashioning Le Horla. Mediatic Transposition to the Language of Comics

    • Authors: Ana Luiza Ramazzina Ghirardi
      Pages: 149 - 168
      Abstract: The fantastic has recently been the object of a variety of strategies for its re-signification. Due to new technologies, the genre has found a new path through an old artifice: the image. The mediatic transposition of a literary text to the multimodal language of comics gives new life to canonic texts. According to Boutin (2012), the language of comics brings together multiple modes so that «to read comics is necessarily to face a narrative message of certain complexity and much denser than it might look at first glance». This paper examines the means used in the mediatic transposition of literature to comics, to recreate the suspense present in the monomodal text and to transform the reader into a co-producer of a new text. To do this, it examines an excerpt of Le Horla d’après l’œuvre de Guy de Maupassant (2014) by Guillaume Sorel.

  • La oscura memoria: cine negro y brechas fantásticas en Enterrar a los
           muertos (2005) y Las serpientes ciegas (2008) [Una contraposición]

    • Authors: Álvaro López Fernández, Raúl Molina Gil
      Pages: 169 - 190
      Abstract: La literatura en torno a la memoria es uno de los puntales de la narrativa hispánica reciente. Lo que este artículo pretende es adentrarse en una de sus áreas más inexploradas (las purgas estalinistas en España durante la Guerra Civil) a través del análisis y la confrontación de dos obras tan reconocidas como heterodoxas: la novela Enterrar a los muertos, de Ignacio Martínez de Pisón, y el cómic Las serpientes ciegas, de Felipe Hernández Cava y Bartolomé Seguí. La pasarela que comunica ambos textos es la estética de cine negro que ambienta el cómic y que –como intentaremos demostrar– modula la tensión de la novela. El final del camino lo marca el empleo de lo fantástico por parte de Cava y Seguí, cuya repercusión se estudiará con detalle en las páginas sucesivas. Y es que no son muchas las producciones que han logrado romper con el realismo dominante de esta literatura…

  • Borderline hyperviolence in the mirror of violence in the comic «Juarez»
           30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales

    • Authors: Rodrigo Pardo Fernández
      Pages: 191 - 211
      Abstract: This critical reading of the comic «Juárez» 30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales seeks to highlight the ways in which the hyperviolence of the border between Mexico and the United States, beginning with the murder of more than 400 women at the beginning of the 21st century, serves as a starting point for a story of vampires with great iconic and textual force in narrative terms. The monstrous characters take the shape of metaphors of the delivery of justice, of the validity of urban myths and of the true (and therefore, more formidable) exercise of the violence on the part of  human beings. The reading of fiction becomes a critique of a current social problem.

  • La sutileza de lo fantástico en la realidad de Jaime Hernández a través
           del personaje de Izzy (Isabel Ortíz Ruebens)

    • Authors: Ana Merino
      Pages: 212 - 230
      Abstract: El imaginario del universo gráfico-narrativo de las tramas de Jaime Hernández se construye, con un aparente tono realista, alrededor de un lugar llamado Hoppers, un vecindario Mexicano en Huerta, en el estado de California, y que está inspirado en Oxnard, el pueblo donde el autor nació en 1959 y en donde pasó la mayor parte de su infancia y adolescencia.  Sin embargo, ese poso realista, está impregnado a su vez de tramas fantásticas que juegan con los lectores y los propios personajes que las experimentan. Jaime Hernández lleva la verosimilitud al límite con guiños metaliterarios y mezclas de géneros. La atmósfera de sus historias, la personalidad de sus protagonistas y el magnífico dibujo de cada viñeta atrapa a unos lectores que asumen todo lo que van viendo con curiosidad y sorpresa. La plasticidad gráfica de los cómics ofrece un doble lenguaje donde las palabras y las imágenes conviven  e interactúan en la construcción de las tramas y sus formas de representación.

  • MIND MGMT: Paranoid Nightmares of a Fugitive Reality.

    • Authors: Pepe Rojo
      Pages: 231 - 246
      Abstract: From 2012 to 2015, Matt Kindt created Mind MGMT, an ultra-paranoid world filled with mental hermaphrodites, children books and pop records that cause riots and revolutions and psychic snipers, all woven together through the elusive Mind Management program. Kindt re-creates fictionally both the breakdown of coherence and the fragmented narratives that make up life in the globalized 21st. century, where permanent crisis seems to be the current state of affairs. Kindt uses several devices to achieve this: fragmented and parallel narrative sequences, scaffolded and nested plot turns, fake ads and field guides. At the same time, Kindt draws on several genres and formats that use the search/production of both truth and reality as their dramatic engine: crime/espionage novels, conspiracy theories, investigative journalism and procedure manuals. This experimental comic/essay focuses on how the radical devices Kindt uses in creating Mind MGMT tap into the paranoid desire and fear of finding out how reality is produced, at the same time playing with the materiality and self-reference of the quotes it uses, drawing on scanned images of the comic itself.

  • La sombra sobre Marvel: reescrituras del horror arquetípico en los
           cómics del Doctor Extraño.

    • Authors: Jorge Martín
      Pages: 247 - 274
      Abstract: Desde que H.P. Lovecraft sentó las bases del horror cósmico, otros muchos autores y medios han seguido el influjo de esta manifestación de lo fantástico. Entre ellos, el comic book americano también ha tratado de incorporar a sus códigos los terrores arquetípicos imaginados por el autor de Providence. Nuestro estudio pretende analizar un caso paradigmático: el superhéroe de la editorial Marvel conocido como Doctor Extraño, pues las particularidades de este personaje parecen óptimas para la trasposición de esta visión del fantástico al mundo del cómic.

  • Lo fantástico de percepción, lo fantástico de lenguaje y su efecto
           subversivo en Control Terrestre de José Güich Rodríguez

    • Authors: Erwin Snauwaert
      Pages: 297 - 316
      Abstract: En la literatura latinoamericana contemporánea tanto los objetos tecno-científicos como los otros elementos temáticos cuya presencia es típica de lo fantástico se vinculan cada vez más a unos experimentos con la enunciación narrativa. Así llegan a convivir un ‘fantástico de percepción’ y un ‘fantástico de lenguaje’, dos modalidades que se elaboran en la colección de cuentos Control Terrestre (2013) del autor peruano José Güich Rodríguez. Concretamente, algunos relatos ponen en marcha la vacilación aprovechando la presencia de una maquinaria futurística, mientras otros se valen de la materialidad del texto, alternando o conectando la elaboración del tema mencionado con unos artificios propiamente estructurales como los juegos con el tiempo de la narración, la metaficción y diversas referencias intertextuales. Finalmente, ambas estrategias actúan de conjunto al constituir un discurso que cuestiona la realidad socioeconómica latinoamericana denunciando la deshumanización y sugiriendo la existencia de unos mundos paralelos.

  • La poética de Julio Cortázar: el universo neogótico en sus
           textos

    • Authors: Spyridon Mavridis
      Pages: 331 - 352
      Abstract: Se ha disertado mucho sobre la vertiente fantástica en los cuentos de Julio Cortázar, una flexión verdaderamente preeminente en su proyecto narrativo y calificada con el prefijo “neo” como parte más amplia de la propuesta canonizada por Franz Kafka. No obstante, consideramos buena parte de esta prolífica producción como una evolución, darwiniamente hablando, de la flexión gótica de la literatura de terror a la que calificamos como neogótica, por analogía con el respectivo membrete relacionado con la evolución del género neofantástico. En el presente artículo exploramos dicha faceta del autor argentino proponiendo una lectura alternativa de sus cuentos desde esta perspectiva. The fantastic aspect of Julio Cortazar’s short stories, a genre which is really preeminent in his narrative project and qualified by the prefix "neo" as part of the much wider proposal canonized by Franz Kafka, has been extensively discussed. Nevertheless, we consider a big part of this prolific production as an evolution, in the Darwinian sense, of the gothic genre of horror literature, which could as well be qualified as neo-gothic, by analogy with the evolution of the neo-fantastic genre. In this article we explore this facet of the Argentinian writer, proposing an alternative lecture on his short stories from this perspective.

  • The First Fantasy Characters of the Mexican Cinema: from Ghosts to
           Vampires

    • Authors: María Dolores Cabrera Carreón
      Pages: 353 - 380
      Abstract: This article explores the kind of fantasy characters of Mexican film between 1933 and 1969. The appearance of these characters is related to two periods of Mexican film industry: the thirties, an epoch of cinematic experimentation and the search of new aesthetics; and then later the fifties and sixties, the decline of the Golden Age of the Mexican cinema and the search for new genres, stories, characters and filmic resources which contributed to the emergence of the horror and science fiction in Mexican film. This review focuses on the description of the fantasy figures and the analysis of how these figures from European literature and cinema were adapted to a Mexican context. Likewise, the main part of this study is dedicated to the classification and analysis of the figure of the vampire, the vampire films and their contribution to the development of the Mexican horror and science fiction films.
