GAGO, Sebastian Horacio. MEMORY CONSTRUCTION IN THE NEW RIVER PLATE HISTORICAL COMIC: THE CASE OF MALANDRAS AND TACUARA (SANTULLO-GINEVRA). Perspect. comun. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.195-231. ISSN 0718-4867.

In this paper, we analyze two comic strips: Malandras (2010-2011) and Tacuara (2012), both scripted by Rodolfo Santullo and drawn by Dante Ginevra. Published in the Argentine magazine Fierro, these fictions can be recognized as attempts to reconstruct and analyze the past. Although they can be classified as different subgenres within the broad traditional adventure genre (one can be classified as part of the police genre and the other, as an example of the political genre), both comics are centered around political aspects. We maintain that they are historical comics because they produce meaning from events and actors whose central properties and characteristics have already been configured in discourses marked by their referential function, especially by historiography and journalism (Berone, 2018, p. 41). The new historical story comics from the River Plateexploit the condition of graphic narratives as an expressive means to build collective memory and review the past, giving meaning to historical events under a certain context - especially the social imaginary about the past built in a singular present.
