The recent wave of female writer-artists in Sweden gives rise to interrogations on what these contemporary voices contribute to the field of comic art. The relationship between men and women, and techniques to humorously and critically represent it, can frequently be observed in this feminist branch. Two leading Swedish writer-artists, Nina Hemmingsson and Liv Strömquist, are chosen here for the analysis of the men-women theme. Through a literary studies framework, drawing on literary critic Mikhail Bakhtin’s thoughts on medieval society and on psychiatrist Frantz Fanon’s ideas about the relation between the colonized and the colonizer, the analysis deploys how the writer-artists link the theme of men-women to a history of Western culture and to relations of domination on a global level. The results show that the studied comical excerpts transmit feminist and political messages anchored in history as well as in contemporary society, underscoring the importance of humor to get across controversial messages.
