Autobiographical Comics (Paperback)

Elisabeth El Refaie

-  

This is a fascinating look at the rise of the autobiographical comic, and its possibilities for the future of storytelling. A troubled childhood in Iran. Living with a disability. Grieving for a dead child. Over the last forty years the comic book has become an increasingly popular way of telling personal stories of considerable complexity and depth. Autobiographical Comics offers a long overdue assessment of the key conventions, formal properties, and narrative patterns of this fascinating genre. The book considers eighty-five works of North American and European provenance, works that cover a broad range of subject matters and employ many different artistic styles. Drawing on concepts from several disciplinary fields - including semiotics, literary and narrative theory, art history, and psychology - El Refaie shows that the traditions and formal features of comics provide new possibilities for autobiographical storytelling.
