Abstract
The article discusses the rich cultural history of Cuban comics from the coming into power of the Revolution in 1959. The piece further explores two parallel discourses: one, that of the high-brow intellectuals worried about mass culture, ideology and national independence, and the other embodied by professionals in the visual arts who set out to create a Cuban national comics industry, using this medium effectively to build a revolutionary consciousness and to mobilize the masses.
