Abstract
This article presents different public uses of comics to represent difficult pasts on the basis of four case studies: the National Socialist and GDR pasts in the German memory field, and the Fascist past and terrorist/Mafia massacres in the Italian memory field. The comparative analysis focuses on three factors of influence: the narratives and aesthetic forms culturally legitimized in the two national public memory spaces, the cultural frames which define a specific past, and the cultural paradigms of transnational comics. In the final analysis, the article contemplates not only the graphic representations of the past, but also the social actors (artists, publishers, political institutions, public intellectuals) involved in this process of collectively working memory, their symbolic and cultural resources, and their power relationships.
