Abstract

This study aims to show the great possibilities of graphic novel as a medium to represent historical instances, through fiction or direct records and witnesses, by focusing on the work of the Italian cartoonist Andrea Ferraris. Churubusco, set in 1847, during the Mexican-American War, tells the story of Saint Patrick’s Battalion deserting from the American army. Being invited to expose the original panels of his graphic novel at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Los Angeles for the 150th anniversary of the American invasion, the author recollects records from the border and publishes a second work, La cicatrice, blinking an eye to graphic reportage and journalism.

Keywords
