comics and translation
Thread poster: Silvia Mo

Hello everyone!

I am new on proz.com and I am an Italian student looking for a subject for my university dissertation.

I am interested in British comics and I am asking you some advice on British graphic novels or comics that have been translated into Italian. Does anyone know something interesting on this topic to recommend me?? The more culture-rooted the comics, the better for my dissertation because it is going to be more interesting and original!

Thank
... See more

thanks Arianne!

Actually, the couple English--> Italian is what I am interested in and what I'm looking for is comics with humour, not only for children but even for adults. And I still have to find comics of this type translated into Italian. I guess it is because humour is deeply culture-rooted but I find the topic very interesting from the point of view of translation and I don't want to give up my research!

Anyway, thanks for your help!!
