Abstract

This chapter examines what happened when an American comic was translated into French. It notes what was lost and added in translation. It points to the way that translating the words of a medium that mixes words and images to create meaning leaves traces of that original meaning in the images. In this and other ways, Bicot could be both French and American at the same time.
