Abstract: Comics journalism is an emerging field that combines journalistic approach with comics to produce factually accurate and well-researched news stories. However, if journalists draw the news and use a medium for news coverage that is associated with fiction, how will readers know whether the comics journalists are telling the truth, whether their reports are not fictional narratives? What are the visual strategies to demonstrate the authenticity of their work? This paper deals with the relationship of subjectivity, objectivity, transparency, and authenticity in comics journalism. Based on a visual analysis it presents some visual authentication strategies that comics journalists use in their non-fictional comics.
