The focus of this article is on what I conceive as a form of comic-chronotope particular to Gilbert Hernandez. His works present a specific interconnection between time and space that radicalises the common chronotopic device of the comic form. I argue that, by carefully organising these essential elements (time and space) in a concrete whole within his narratives, Hernandez is also re-imaging his context, history and sense of identity with the use of the comic form. To make it visible, I will first analyse Hernandez’s Luba Comics (2000–2004), Chance in Hell (2007), to illustrate what I understand by comic-chronotope on a literal level, and also to highlight the use that Hernandez makes of it that is specific to the medium and that at the same time defines his voice. Finally, I will use Julio’s Day (2013) to discuss the unfolding of its spatial and temporal indicators into an explicit form of historicity.
