This is the first book to explore the multitude of narrative media forms created by and that feature Latinxers in the twenty-first century—a radically different cultural landscape to earlier epochs. The chapters present a fresh take informed by the explosion of Latinx demographics and its divergent cultural tastes. Some of the many areas of exploration include: Western, horror, sci-fi, lucha, and narco films and TV; animation; pulp novels; tattoos; blogs; Latinx Internet websites; comic books; and video games.
The volume includes chapters by the following scholars: Jesse Alemán, Camilla Fojas, David William Foster, Torsa Ghosal, Christopher González, Sue J. Kim, Isabel Molina-Guzmán, Adilifu Nama, William Nericcio, Randy Ontiveros, Theresa Rojas, Samuel Saldívar, Phillip Serrato, and Ilan Stavans. It also includes a Foreword by comics creator Javier Hernandez and an Afterword by John Jota Leaños.
