Carlos Tabernero, "Wildlife comics, or the making of young naturalists in late Franco’s Spain (1969–1970)", Journal of Science Communication, Volume 21, February 2022. DOI: https://doi.org/10.22323/2.21010205







This essay examines a highly popular comic series published in Spain between 1969 and 1970 which focused on Felix Rodríguez de la Fuente (1928–1980), a prominent and influential naturalist and media icon, as main character. These comics constitute a remarkably illustrative example of the use of popular media in processes of construction of natural history knowledge. Situated in the complex final years of Franco's regime, they allow us to probe the combined role of science, media, and celebrity in the construction of a visual environmental culture through storytelling strategies designed to engage young audiences in naturalist-like practices.
