Ida Yoshinaga deploys a transmedial narratological strategy towards the multi-panel sequences in the erotic graphic novel Lost Girls, evaluating the racial politics of pornographic pleasure within the double narrative of the comic-book medium, in order to recommend that Western sexualized storytelling directly engage empire and colonialism. A close reading of the contrasting verbal and visual narrative dimensions exposes ruptures between the political art of comics recontextualizing tales of iconic fantasy characters into real historical and material conditions, and the more universalist approach to erotic illustration, representating the racial “other,” beyond verbal narrative, with satirical flashes of exotic, colonized (is)lands, or of brown sex partners who remain imaginary, unnamed, and voiceless.
