In this article, I propose the label ‘inter-national comics’ as an alternative to ‘international comics’. As it is currently understood, the notion of ‘international comics’ places a particular emphasis on the foreignness of works produced in other countries to the detriment of their reception by new readerships. Thus, the hyphenated ‘inter-national comics’ allows us to rethink the reciprocal relationship between the foreignness of a comic from another country and the locality of its new readership, bringing to the fore the exchange between nations that the hyphen emphasises. This ‘inter-national’ relationship, in addition, manifests formally within the very pages of certain works. This is the case of two world-renowned comics such as David B.’s Epileptic (2006) and Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido’s Blacksad (2005), which I read here as spaces in which a veritable encounter between nations occurs.
