Redéfinir le canon: portrait du héros romanesque en super-héros

Abstract : Observing the generic exhaustion of the American comic books and of their superheroes, authors such as Frenchmen Lehman and Colin have turned to (French) popular literature to find both the origin and a possible renewal of the genre. More than anyone else, Alan Moore offers a deeper reflexion on the comic-book superheroes suggesting three theoretical possibilities: a geographic and cultural transfer from the United-States to continental Europe (and more particularly the United Kingdom), a renewal based on a new definition of the canon of comic books within the literary canon, and the redefinition of the hero in canonical and popular literatures as a new superhero.
