Text author: Марија Ристић
The process of globalization has destabilized and changed the existing status of national identity, in consequence of which national art has lost the status of official art practice. Comic strip as a specific sort of artistic expression, offers numerous national codes in its visual and textual narratives, which have a common role – to communicate with the reader. This paper will analyze visual elements of the Serbian national identity in the comic strip Hieronymus Bosch aiming to present and interpret it as these elements are not integral part of the comic narrative. Hieronymus Bosch has been published in several European countries so far. It was created by the French publisher Delcourt, script writers Perez and Ricaume, in cooperation with the Serbian academic painter and illustrator Boban Savić (Geto).
