Abstract
“Such trauma is also apparent in Katharine Polak MacDonald’s discussion of Jason Aaron’s graphic novel Scalped, in which characters are forced to find ways to come to grips with both the events of the past and the role they played in these events, a role that can never be truly forgotten. At the same time, Aaron’s graphic novel shows that in addition to being traumatic, the past is also fragmented, disjointed, and unstable, so much so that our attempts to get a handle on and define it are almost guaranteed to fail. Do fictional imaginings succeed where historical documents fail, or are they equally fraught with contradictions, biases, and short-sightedness?” (John Cameron: “Preface”, S. xiv)
