Angelo Mitchievici, Banda desenată și arcanele ei


Comics and their arcana

The present study departs from Ioan Stanomir’s recent book, Camera obscura. Dream, imagination and comics, in order to explore the unextinguishable imaginaire of the „graphic prose”. Following Stanomir’s foostepts, Mitchievici aims at showing that comics are not a minor genre, as common preconception states; the comics are instead a vehicle just as effective as any other literary genre in conveying a sense of the great art. Mainly focused on the iconic figures of Tintin and Corto Maltese, the studies of Stanomir and Mitchievici clearly prove their demonstrandum – namely that „graphic prose” or comics are one of the few forms of art specific to the postmodern cultural paradigm.
Keywords: postmodern art, comics, graphic prose, Tintin, Corto Maltese
