A Text Version of Argentina's Most Famous Comic Book Feb 27, 2003
Note that this is NOT a graphic novel, but a novelization of "El Eternauta," Argentina's best-known comic book. This novel (entirely in Spanish) is by the original author, Héctor Germán Oesterheld. There are also a few illustrations which I believe are by Francisco Solano López, the original artist and illustrator.
The story is about an alien invasion of Buenos Aires set around 1962 (the story first appeared in 1957.) Oesterheld and López had hoped that the story would be a pilot episode for a continuing series, but this never developed. There is also an alternative version, authored by Oesterheld with illustrations by Alberto Breccia. However Oesterheld continued the story in text form, which comprises the bulk of this book.
Two later comic-book sequels appeared, one by Oesterheld himself, but they are not highly regarded.
Oesterheld 'disappeared' in 1976: it is assumed he was executed as a presumed foe of the military dictatorship of the period.
Inolvidable Sep 27, 2002
Oesterheld muestra en esta obra su enorme imaginacion y capacidad narrativa. Transmite desde su lugar y a traves de estas historias sus ideas en el contexto de un pais en sangrienta dictadura, terminando incluso desaparecido por el gobierno militar. Un libro inolvidable que merece un lugar en cualquier biblioteca.
