Abstract
This article examines rhetorical strategies of nonsensical political humor in Pierre La Police’s Véridique! comics. Applying the Groupe µ’s theoretical principles, which posit that various deviations from a standard semantic model constitute the basis of all figures of speech, I propose to establish an inventory of tropes prevalent in La Police’s absurdist representation of a political referent, which is a recurring topic in Véridique!. Because La Police’s panels reflexively play on mimesis, I also discuss the author’s subversive treatment of mass culture and media representation, as well as his deconstructive reinvention of the standard comics code.
