Abstract

Indahnya Taman Surga Pedihnya Siksa Neraka, one of the religious comics present in Indonesia. This comic reaps the discourse of the debate because it is considered to present violence and pornography, on the other hand, this comic offers the teachings of life and cosmology according to Islam. This research seeks to find a representation of the concept of the torment of hell in the Islamic teachings present in the comic visual. Comparative studies were conducted between Islamic teachings through the interpretation of the Quran Hamka version, as well as the content of torture present in the visuals embodied in the comics. Interpretation brings the result that the comic provides narrative development by making variations, additions, simplifications, and reductions influenced by the comic's background without changing the main idea of the source. Comics show the comic's belief in Islamic teachings, including in interpreting his belief that there will be a hell of a version of himself.
