El cómic
La historieta gráfica o cómic es una narración contada a través de una sucesión de
ilustraciones que se completan con un texto escrito. También hay historietas mudas, sin
texto.
El lenguaje del cómic
• El autor de un cómic organiza la historia que quiere contar distribuyéndola en una serie
de espacios o recuadros llamados viñetas.
• El texto escrito suele ir encerrado en cartuchos normalmente rectangulares cuando se
trata del discurso del narrador, y en globos o bocadillos cuando se trata de
integrar en la viñeta el discurso o pensamiento de los personajes. La forma de los
cartuchos y de los bocadillos se adapta en muchas ocasiones a la intencionalidad
del contenido.
Características
a) Normalmente la narración es rápida y las descripciones se hacen a través de la imagen.
b) Es normal reproducir el lenguaje coloquial, por ejemplo:
• Titubeos (¡ca... caramba!)
• Alargamientos de palabras (cuidadooo!)
• Frases interrumpidas (y, de pronto...)
• Frases cortas, exclamaciones, interrogaciones... (¡Tengo hambre!)
• Expresiones populares (¡Córcholis! ¡Hola, chato!)
• Reproducción de sonidos, ruidos, golpes... (¡Guau! ¡Boom! ¡Buaaa!)
• Sustitución de las palabras por signos (?, !!, *)
c) Se utilizan recursos humorísticos:
• Nombres humorísticos (Rompeplatos, Carpanta, Pantuflín)
• Imágenes (Es un lince)
• Símiles (Es fuerte como un león)
• Situaciones contradictorias (Toma guapo, aquí tengo una porra de recambio)
• Ironías (Con estos chicos irá usted lejos...) –uno de los recursos más utlizados
• Hipérboles (De ahí no saldrán hasta que canten los melones)
• Equivocaciones (¡Suelta, "Toby", que no es un ladrón...!)
• Afirmaciones en son de burla (¡Le felicito, Pórrez! Esto es trabajar con tesón y
esfuerzo)
• Los personajes tienen rasgos exagerados
Hemos visto el lenguage del cómic pero seguro que quieres saber mucho más sobre los
orígenes. Aquí puedes encontrar bastante información:

Sept 24: Distant Journey (Daleká cesta, A.
Radok, 1949; 98 min.) @ East Campus
Union – Goldenrod/Sunflower Room
Banned for decades, this masterpiece has been
labeled as one of the best Holocaust films.
More realistic and moving than Schindler’s list.
It is a story of a medical doctor who marries a
Czech gentile, and their struggles to keep
dignity and humanity while trying to survive
under Nazi occupation.
Oct 29 Closely Watched Trains (Ostře
sledované vlaky, J. Menzel, 1966, 89 min.)
@ City Campus Union – Heritage Room
One of the best-known products of the largely
banned Czechoslovak New Wave. Based on
novel by Bohumil Hrabal, it is coming-of-age
story about a young man working at a train
station in German-occupied Czechoslovakia
during WW II. Released outside Czechoslovakia
during 1967, it won the Best Foreign Language
Oscar but the film was unable to find much
secure work due to his public antagonism
toward the ruling Communist Party.
Nov 19 Burning Bush (Hořící keř; A.
Holland, 2013, 231 min.) @ East Campus
Union – Goldenrod/Sunflower Room
World-recognized film on legacy of a student
who put himself a flame protesting on Warsaw
Pact troops invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
Based on real characters and events, this drama
focuses on the personal battles of Dagmar
Burešová, a young female lawyer, who was
defending Jan's family in a trial against the
communist government, a regime which tried
to dishonor Palach's sacrifice, a heroic action for
the freedom of Czechoslovakia.
Dec 3 Larks on a String (Skřivánci na niti;
J. Menzel, 1969, 91 min.) @ East Campus
Union – Goldenrod Room
Set in the late 1940s, the film concerns the
treatment of suspect "bourgeois elements", a
professor, a saxophonist, and a milkman, who
are put to work in a junkyard for rehabilitation.
