¡Viva México! A Comic Book History of Mexico

More widely read in Mexico than any other form of cheap print, comics provide a window into the archetypes, stories, and cultural scripts that influenced generations of readers, rich and poor. A new exhibit, ¡Viva México! A Comic Book History of Mexico opening March 16 in Special Collections, explores the spectacular rise of comic books in twentieth-century Mexico and how the government and commercial publishers have used comics to promote nationalism.
