Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen employs the ethos of romance as a mode so as to bring to the fore political issues of our contemporary world. This graphic novel may be said to offer an outstanding example of “political trauma”, employing as it does narrative techniques proper to trauma narratives. In this text, the traumatic memories of real-life traumas, such as the Holocaust and Hiroshima, take the form of icons and visual modes of suffering, as well as aporias, contradictions and compulsive repetitions that break the logical continuity of time in the text and seem to mimic psychiatric trauma’s forms and symptoms.
