“Enrique García’s chapter turns us to yet another area where Latina/os are making significant creative headway: comic books. After making important distinctions between U.S. Latina/o and Latin American comic book cultures, he goes on to analyse how they create counter narratives to the Anglo-dominant mainstream. In a careful analysis of alternative and mainstream comics by and about U.S. Latina/os, García opens our eyes to the complex textures of Latinidad offered by this visual-verbal storytelling format. García ends by gesturing toward the emancipatory possibilities of digital comic creation (the Comixology app, for instance) and consumption (internet and iPad devices, for instance) of visual-verbally constructed stories that continue to do the work of unsettling fixed categories of nation, community, ethnicity, race, and gender.” (Introduction)
