French bande dessinée [comics] provide an excellent area of analysis for developing the concept of transculturation, originally proposed by Fernando Ortiz, and more recently suggested by Alec G. Hargreaves as a useful term for moving beyond the “French”/“Francophone” opposition. The medium has long been transcultural and transnational, and contemporary French comics production and its colonial heritage include visual and textual elements from (post-)colonial and immigrant cultures. Cartoonists position their comics in relationship to different artistic and cultural agenda that are sometimes diametrically opposed to each other along the colonial affrontier.
