Daisy R. Herrera explores how Eduardo del Río (Rius) uses comic book art to encourage readers, especially those of Mexican descent, to ponder Mexico's history of conquest, corruption, and turmoil. Emily Rauber Rodriguez (University of Southern California) examines why two comics, The Montgomery Story and March, intended to disseminate a Civil Rights message have very different formal and structural elements that adapt to their eras and intended functions. Sarah D. Harris (Bennington College) explains how the blurred lines between real and imaginary, self and other, in Miguelanxo Prado's Ardalén allude to the Recovery of Historical Memory in Spain's early 21st century.
