Fumetti di fantascienza, letteratura popolare e previsione sociale

Ferruccio Diozzi


The scientific and science fiction story has always represented a significant part of the comics universe. With distant precursors grappling with ideas, insights and reflections that would have been developed by modern authors, science fiction comics had its center of development in the United States, before and during the Great Depression. The American authors were first flanked by Italian, English, Japanese artists, then the French-speaking artists and Latin Americans. In the course of almost a century of comic science fiction literature, the multiplicity of contributions and a wide narrative dimension has developed offering to the reader, through texts and images, metaphors of the present, visions of the future and never banal reflections on the interaction among man, the environment that surrounds him, science and technology. The article, through the presentation and analysis of some of the most important experiences of the genre, proposes a reflection on the language and, mainly, on the value of science fiction comics, which is, at the same time, narrative form, hybrid medium and information resource.
