Accidental Ambassador Gordo
The comic strip Gordo was published in U.S. newspapers for forty-four years (1941-1985). For almost all of this run its creator Gus Arriola was the most visible American of Mexican descent working as a syndicated cartoonist. At its peak Gordo appeared in 270 newspapers and was the more widely circulated and longer-running of only two American comic strips set in Mexico.

Arriola's art perfectly fits the tone of the Gordo strip, and the jokes are sometimes pretty clever, but I couldn't keep any sustained interest in it. The biographical parts of the book will be interesting if you're a fan of the artist or his work.
