Abstract
[Abstract in English below]
Cet article examine les relations entre le comic strip Flash Gordon, d’Alex Raymond, et son adaptation sous forme de serial en 1936. Le second épisode de celui-ci, « The Tunnel of Terror », et les trois pages dominicales de février 1934 sur lesquelles il est basé sont l’occasion d’une étude des techniques et enjeu de l’adaptation de ce récit sériel. Le serial affiche une volonté de fidélité à l’œuvre de Raymond permettant des comparaisons fines entre des scènes parfois très similaires. Outre des transpositions directes, dans le cas de certaines cases, le serial développe des techniques de narration permettant de reproduire les effets et la temporalité de certains passages du comic strip. L’étude suggère que c’est au niveau de l’articulation entre les scènes mais aussi du rapport de proximité avec les personnages que les deux versions divergent.

This article studies the relationship between Alex Raymond’s Flash Gordon comic strip and its adaptation as a serial in 1936. It focuses on the second episode, “The Tunnel of Terror”, and on the three Sunday pages from February 1934 on which this episode was based, in order to examine the adaptation process from a technical and pragmatic point of view. Because the serial aims at being faithful to its source material, very similar scenes exist in both versions, which makes it possible to conduct a detailed comparison of narrative techniques. In addition to replicating certain panels from the comic strip, the serial contains examples of alternative narrative choices devised to replicate some of the effects of the source material, notably its temporality. This study suggests that the two versions differ mostly in the articulation between scenes and in the proximity established between the reader/viewer and the characters.
