Abstract
This article examines the dynamics of father-son relationships and the problems of intergenerational collaboration in Art Spiegelman's Maus I and II, Seth and John Gallant's Bannock, Beans, and Black Tea: Memories of a Prince Edward Island Childhood during the Depression, and Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth. All three authors are critically acclaimed cartoonists and graphic novelists who use the mixed medium of verbal-visual narratives to tell stories about biological and symbolic fathers. These works reject dominant notions of masculinity and fatherhood through various forms of collaborative auto/biography and intergenerational semi-auto/biography that gravitate towards an aesthetics of smallness. The article concludes that, even as these three projects stage a reconciliation between fathers and sons, past and present, public and private, they nevertheless question the politics and practices of representing self and other in popular graphic form.
