CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

The Franco-Belgian comic strip is subject to a system of editorial constraints, linked to pre-publication in specialized journals, then in standardized albums, which leads to the need for concision. In the case of a writer of the stature of R. Goscinny, the constraint is transcended and allows for the expression of an extremely compact form of intelligence. This article aims to show, using the example of two Asterix in Corsica boards, that its unfolding requires the use of two powerful social science theories, that of Palo Alto and that of narrative and discursive semiotics, to assess its full richness. Accordingly, this makes it possible to qualify this intelligence of the comic strip as an intelligence with a rare capacity for synthesis.
