El Eternauta, Daytripper, and Beyond: Graphic Narrative in Argentina and Brazil by David William Foster

"El Eternauta, Daytripper, and Beyond examines the graphic narrative tradition in the two South American countries that have produced the medium's most significant and copious output. Argentine graphic narrative emerged in the 1980s, awakened by Héctor Oesterheld's groundbreaking 1950s serial El Eternauta. After Oesterheld was "disappeared" under the military dictatorship, El Eternauta became one of the most important cultural texts of turbulent mid-twentieth-century Argentina.
