Using a semiotic framework, this article discusses how the Argentine comic Buscavidas (by Alberto Breccia and Carlos Trillo) can be used as material for historical analysis in reference to the military dictatorship in Argentina from 1976 to 1983. The author examines the comic's representation of the dictatorship and its participation in the creation of a collective conception of the dictatorship at the time of its publication in 1981 and 1982, and of a collective memory of the dictatorship after the democratic transition in 1983. The discussion focuses primarily on the comic in the context of the Argentine comics field, and of the human rights organization, the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo.
