this is a collection of political cartoons dealing with latin american immigrants in the u.s. pretty funny stuff that makes a strong point against bigotry and close-mindedness.
Love this book. Very funny. Lalo is a very observant man. I met him at a journalists conference. Wish I had gotten to talk to him more. I wish more papers would buy his strip. His work does have a very definitely political left bite, which boasts no counterbalance in the hispanic world. !Y ya!
Good comics, racially and socially-oriented content.
Will be interested to see how his animated series Bordertown (with Seth McFarlane) turns out.
