This article considers contemporary Norwegian comics that depict the nineteenth-century dramatist Henrik Ibsen and his works in the context of Ibsen’s own active programme of visual self-representation through photography, and in relation to earlier caricatures. Focusing on comics by Steffen Kverneland, Ola A. Hegdal, the team of Øystein Runde and Geir Moen, and the team of Geir Moen and David Zane Mairowitz, the author argues that these works shift the focus from the intellectual and aesthetic contents of Ibsen’s texts to Ibsen’s fame and status as a visual icon.
