dc.description.abstractL'après-guerre est généralement considérée par les Américains comme une guerre froide entre l'URSS et les États-Unis. Cependant, ce point de vue est insuffisant, car il ne tient pas compte du fait que la période a également été marquée par la décolonisation des anciens empires, comme la France. La comparaison entre la France et les États-Unis au cours de cette période permet de remettre en cause l'idée américaine selon laquelle la guerre froide était tout ce qui a défini le monde après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Malheureusement, comparer tous les aspects de l'évolution de leur politique, de leurs cultures et de leurs identités nationales serait Presque impossible. Pour cette raison, cette analyse se concentrera sur la comparaison des bandes dessinées françaises et américaines pendant la guerre froide. Ces grands changements mondiaux ont contraint la France et les États-Unis à construire de nouvelles conceptions de leur place dans le monde, et les bandes dessinées ne sont que des réalités fictives construites. Par conséquent, elles ont agi comme une sorte de miroir déformant de la société où les attitudes peuvent s'exprimer à travers des histoires et des images. L’historien Bradford Wright l'exprime ansi: “For in these garish comic book images, one glimpses a crude, exaggerated, and absurd caricature of the American experience tailored for young tastes. They offer a revealing fun-house mirror of life, not necessarily as it was or even as it should be but as young people have paid to see it.” // The postwar period is generally considered by Americans to be a cold war between the USSR and the United States. However, this point of view is insufficient, because it does not hold account of the fact that the period was also marked by the decolonization of the old empires, like France. The comparison between France and the United States during this period allows us to question the American idea that the Cold War was all that defined the world after WWII. Unfortunately, compare all aspects changes in their politics, cultures and national identities would almost be impossible. For this reason, this analysis will focus on comparing French and American comics during the Cold War. These great global changes forced France and the United States to build new conceptions of their place in the world, and the comics are just constructed fictional realities. Therefore, they acted as a kind of distorting mirror of society where attitudes can express themselves through stories and images. The historian Bradford Wright says “For in these garish comic book images, one glimpses a crude, exaggerated, and absurd caricature of the American experience tailored for young tastes. They offer a revealing fun-house mirror of life, not necessarily as it was or even as it should be but as young people have paid to see it.”en_US
