Conflict and trauma remain among the most prevalent themes in film and literature. Comics has never avoided such narratives, and comics artists are writing them in ways that are both different from and complementary to literature and film. In Comics, Trauma, and the New Art of War, Harriet E. H. Earle brings together two distinct areas of research—trauma studies and comics studies—to provide a new interpretation of a long-standing theme. Focusing on representations of conflict in American comics after the Vietnam War, Earle claims that the comics form is uniquely able to show traumatic experience by representing events as viscerally as possible. Using texts from across the form and placing mainstream superhero comics alongside alternative and art comics, Earle suggests that comics are the ideal artistic representation of trauma. Because comics bridge the gap between the visual and the written, they represent such complicated narratives as loss and trauma in unique ways, particularly through the manipulation of time and experience. Comics can fold time and confront traumatic events, be they personal or shared, through a myriad of both literary and visual devices. As a result, comics can represent trauma in ways that are unavailable to other narrative and artistic forms. With themes such as dreams and mourning, Earle concentrates on trauma in American comics after the Vietnam War. Examples include Alissa Torres’s American Widow, Doug Murray’s The ’Nam, and Art Spiegelman’s much-lauded Maus. These works pair with ideas from a wide range of thinkers, including Sigmund Freud, Mikhail Bakhtin, and Fredric Jameson, as well as contemporary trauma theory and clinical psychology. Through these examples and others, Comics, Trauma, and the New Art of War proves that comics open up new avenues to explore personal and public trauma in extraordinary, necessary ways.
Tintin sur le divan
Author: Gérard Guasch
Voici Tintin assis devant moi. Je le regarde et l'écoute. « - Je suis déjà allé chez le psychanalyste, me confie-t-il, chez plusieurs même, mais ils se sont plus intéressés à mon père et à ses histoires de famille qu'à moi. Je viens vous voir pour une autre psychanalyse. » A ces mots, Milou me lance un coup d'oeil complice et se fend d'un large sourire. « Vous voyez, semble-t-il me dire, nous savons à qui nous avons affaire ». Nous invitant à pratiquer cette analyse pas à pas avec lui, c'est bien au-delà du cadre confiné d'un cabinet d'analyste que Gérard Guasch nous entraîne. Avec lui, chaque lecteur devient l'analyste de Tintin.

Herge is known worldwide for his plucky, globetrotting and strikingly quiffed hero Tintin. Yet before this he created a number of less well-known characters, the loopiest of which is surely Peppy and Virginny. They were a couple of haberdashers who journey to the Wild West in search of new clientele; accompanied by their trusty horse, Bluebell, that ran into savage Indian tribes, evil bandits and more. The famous clear line style of Herge is evident here, combining with a freewheeling, farcical storyline and engaging animal characters.
