dc.description.abstractThis essay analyzes Fulú (1988-1991), a comic by the Argentinean writer Carlos Trillo and the graphic artist Eduardo Risso. Given her supernatural powers and a clear idea of what freedom means, the Black slave Fulú is able to escape Brazil and return to her tribe in Africa. The daughter of a mortal woman and a demigod, she has several powers, including an irresistible sexual appeal and the ability to paralyze whoever intends to sexually abuse her. Two main topics are analyzed: how the subject is constituted in the colonial structure and the agency of the main character.en_US
