This article analyzes the motif of transgressing borders in Mana Neyestani’s recent graphic memoir Une métamorphose iranienne (2012) on several planes: thematically and metaphorically, intertextually, diegetically, and genre-specifically. At first, the work is assessed historically in the contexts of bande dessinée as well as complex and experimental Francophone and Anglophone comics. A prototype approach is used to establish the graphic novel as a subgenre of graphic narratives and graphic memoirs or reportage comics as subgenres of the graphic novel. Finally, it is shown to what extent Une métamorphose iranienne fits into a prototypical category schema and how it unfolds its motif of transgression.
