Cartoons and comics have played important roles in the political and social processes of Latin American for more than a century. This book coalesces aspects of comic art of the entire region, capturing historical backgrounds, documenting trends, problems and situations of comic art in contemporary settings; and profiling cartoonists, comics characters, titles, and genres.
Ten countries of Central and South America and Spanish Caribbean are dealt with in separate chapters. Comic art forms/media that are subjects of chapters are animation, caricature, comic books, comic strips, humor magazines, and political cartoons. Approaches include historical and contemporary overviews, cartoonist profiles, and comic/cartoon character analyses.
