This paper deals with a new medium of narrating history: the graphic narrative. Using Art Spiegelman’s cult text, Maus, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, and Joe Sacco’s Safe Area Goražde and Palestine, it studies the strategies through which the graphic narrative delivers historical trauma, such as genocide, war, and oppression, in what it calls a ‘hypervisible history.’ It proposes that the graphic narrative is a constituent of the visual culture of affect that helps render visible what has been censored or hidden. It combines official history with the personal autobiographical mode and subverts the primacy and authority of the former. Finally, through a strategy of self-portraiture and hypostasis, the graphic narrative, as subjective documentary, generates a ‘graphic history.’ The essay argues a case for the graphic narrative as a medium for the transmission of inexpressible trauma.
