A semiotic analysis informed by ecofeminist theory was performed on Serpieri’s Morbus Gravis series of erotic graphic novels, which feature his well-known female protagonist, Druuna. Prevailing themes identified and discussed include mind/body dualism, internal conflict, technological transcendence, and objectification/destruction. Implications exist for understanding the potential impact of phallocentric epistemology on the environment. In addition, this analysis further demonstrates the capacity of the medium of comic art to take on complex philosophical issues and deal with them in a way that both entertains and enlightens.
