On his book Your Brain on Latino Comics: From Gus Arriola to Los Bros Hernandez

Cover Interview of June 10, 2009


From the very get-go when I conceived of the book, I felt a strong impulse to join critical analysis together with a polyphony of actual author/artists of Latino comics speaking about the craft.  As a result, I was able to interview author/artists such as Laura Molina, Rafael Navarro, Roberta Gregory, Frank Espinosa, and Los Bros Hernandez, to name a few.

Your Brain on Latino Comics is the realization of my ambition: to offer a solid understanding of how Latino comic books work, as well as to give readers a firm grasp of the aspirations and goals that these author/artists set for themselves in the creating of comic books.  This abundance of voices and takes on the craft should give readers a clear picture of the Latino comic book in the United States today.
