This introduction to the special issue on 'Perpetrators in Comics' notes a growing corpus of comics that deal with genocide and mass violence, many of which include increasingly nuanced and complex depictions of the figure of the perpetrator. The introduction explores scholarship on the representation of perpetrators in comics, identifying a historical lack of attention to these characters while also demonstrating how more recent scholarly works have moved the perpetrator figure to a more central position within the analysis. Finally, the various contributions to the special issue are introduced.
