Prolific prof Frederick Luis Aldama's latest full-color opus Latinx Comic Book Storytelling: An Odyssey by Interview features over 100 full-color comic illustrations and captures, via delicious interviews, the next wave in the history of sequential art, with Latinx cartoonist superheroes remaking the space of comics, comix, & graphic narrative, and, simultaneously, changing the pace/face (faster, browner) of art history in the process!
"The US comic’s scene is evolving—along with the rest of the culture—slowly, sometimes painfully, but inexorably towards a greater diversity of readers & creators, of new styles & stories. This book gives us a series of intimate conversations with several generations of Latin@ cartoonists (diverse themselves in their backgrounds and interests) juggling craft and art with heritage and language. These pioneers have their noses to their drawing boards and tablets but they keep their eyes on the larger significance of their work."
