Nostalgia is a recurrent word in both mainstream and academic discourses about comics. The contours and specific features of the allure of nostalgia, however, often remain undefined: What do we mean, exactly, when we say a graphic novel is nostalgic? By performing a close reading of Seth’s It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken (1996), my contribution aims to build a critical framework that explores different levels (structure, motifs, and style), allowing a better understanding of what constitutes the nostalgic aura of a given text through taking into account structural characteristics, thematic elements, and stylistic features.
