Recent Spanish historical comics have sought to recover and visualize forgotten or untold stories from the Spanish Civil War and dictatorship from a leftist perspective, responding to the continuing cultural need of the descendants of the victims of Francoist repression to know their past. This talk outlines some of the main aesthetic and narrative strategies of contemporary Spanish practitioners of the ninth art.
