Description
This collection includes comic books, zines, books, over sized posters, and other publications related to Latino/Latina writers and artists, material related to Latino/Latina culture and history, and publications by other writers and artists. Subjects include latino/latina writers and artists, Latino/Latina culture and history, and Latino/Latina comic books.
Background
Many comic books published before the 1980's did not contain Latino/Latina themes or characters. One of the first comic books to include such material was Love and Rockets, a self-published comic book by the three Hernandez brothers- Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario. The comic book was first published in 1982 and later published by the comic book publisher, Fantagraphics. Today, there is an annual comic book expo, the Latino Comic Expo, to showcase the works of Latino/Latina artists as well as other comic book artists.
