Hot off the Press! "Your Brain on Latino Comics"
Aldama's Your Brain on Latino Comics: From Gus Arriola to Los Bros Hernandez is the first book-length that puts the spotlight on Latino comic books. It explores mainstream comic book representations of Latino superheroes from the late 1970s till today and Latino author/artists working today (the book includes 21 interviews with such authors) as well as probes the rich and complex ways in which such Latino artists affect the cognitive and emotional responses of readers.
