schema:description"H. G. Oesterheld played an important role in the development of the Argentine comic between the 1950s and 1970s. He created legendary characters, such as Sergeant Kirk, Ernie Pike, Doctor Morgue, El Eternauta, and Mort Cinder's Extra. He unknowingly opened up a bridge between fantastic and comic literature, showing that comics could be as intense as literature and, in turn, can offer alternative aesthetic possibilities. He showed that a good script is an element indispensable to the creation of a quality comic. The article discusses not only his career but also his "disappearance" in Argentina. His disappearance closed one of the most remarkable chapters in the history of the Argentine comic. The military junta that ordered his assassination was quite concerned with the narrative capacity and the moral universe of his characters; although they were "merely comics," they were capable of stimulating free and independent thinking in his readership. Oesterheld had unwittingly related, in several his comics, tales that connected with those years of death and repression. In his fantastic stories, he had alluded to extraterrestrial invasions and sinister characters who aspired to control the world and dominate the thoughts of its people."
