Although the visual representation of the past in François Bourgeon's “Les Compagnons du crépuscule” reveals a mainstream graphic novel that adheres to a traditional narrative pattern, a closer look reveals that the story, in spite of the mimetic drawing style, offers several patterns of sense and refuses an absolute interpretation. This undoing of fixed “truths” also applies to the construction of gender. Especially the complexity of the female protagonists and the fact that they are conceived within the power relationships of society subverts the paternalist sexual imaginations and its notions of essentialist femininity.
