This article focuses on the question of character subjectivity as it relates to the portrayal of perspective in graphic memoir. Adopting a narratological approach, it interrogates the distinction between focalization and ocularization, thinking and seeing, to ask if it is theoretically attractive to distinguish between the two when considering the presentation of subjectivity in graphic memoir. Through a critically informed analysis of visual techniques used by comics artists to represent character perspective, the article concludes that ocularization is a part of focalization, and not separate from it. Examples are drawn from Persepolis, Stitches, and Fun Home.
