In his article, “Comics and the Graphic Novel in Spain and Iberian Galicia,” Antonio J. Gil González develops a comparative and interart analysis of graphic novels by examining the evolution of the genre on the Spanish peninsula in general and in Galicia in particular. Gil González builds his analysis on Roman Ingarden’s concept of literature as not only traditional fiction, but also theater and cinema. Gil González presents his argumentation by identifying the peculiarities of the comic as a medium, starting with its historical beginnings, and discussing its principal formats and generic and thematic variants. Further, he discusses the principal semiological and narratological variables in comicographic language using the arguments of Román Gubern. Gil González’s discussion is based on the importation of the genre from Anglophone North America and from Europe (i.e., France, Germany, Belgium, etc.).
