My Brain on Latino Comics

Latino Culture + Comics=Summer Reading

Frederick Luis Aldama's new book Your Brain on Latino Comics looks like just the thing for wanting to learn a bit about the culture of Latino comics with interviews with the authors of the comics as well.

Your Brain on Latino Comics: From Gus Arriola to Los Bros Hernandez (Cognitive Approaches to Literature and Culture)

If I wasn't already sold on the concept, then Aldama's words in an interview with the OSU newspaper hooked me:
"The book not only tells you the story about Latinos in comic books," Aldama said, "it tells you something as foundational as how we can imagine other places, how we can feel, or be emotionally moved by, something that is not in our present tense experience."
