This text was inspired by a personal perplexity occasioned by the Argentinian miniseries on TV Pública, Germán, últimas viñetas [Germán’s Last Panels] with actor Miguel Ángel Solá in the leading role. (The series aired from 30 April to 23 May 2013.) I mean perplexity because why would a TV channel devote a whole series to a comics scriptwriter? I ask because in many countries and moments in history the comics scriptwriter was not even credited. On the other hand, the series implies another question: what happens to a great creator when he finds himself, because of his life’s circumstances, in the situation of practising his trade in a primarily conservative and commercial environment? I’ll try to answer those questions, but since Oesterheld’s achievements are still too unknown in Europe I hope to also give here my humble contribution to help correct the situation.
