Wonder Comics. Redrawing Gender in Ibero-American Graphic Narratives

Nicoletta Mandolini, Cristina Álvares & María Márquez López

2023 | CECS

ISSN:e-ISSN 2183-0886 | ISSN 2184-0458

“This thematic issue is a space to assign visibility and critical legitimisation to Ibero-American feminist and queer comics and graphic novels. It is also a place to discuss in detail the strengths and limitations that characterise them, both in terms of adherence to the complexity of gender-related theorisations and their access to local and transnational dissemination. Not by coincidence, this is the very objective of the working group Autoras, Investigadoras y Editoras de Cómic that two of the editors of this special issue, María Márquez López and Nicoletta Mandolini, convene in the context of the Cost Action project iCOn-MICs. The work undertaken for this publication is, in light of this, one of the outputs of the iCOn-MICs project. Moreover, the inclusion of this special issue in the editorial work undertaken by Lusophone Journal of Cultural Studies gave the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the most neglected graphic narrative productions among Ibero-American criticisms: those arising from the Lusophone cultural space. The selection of articles and reviews that this thematic issue proposes reflect these choices”.
