This series will showcase trade graphic and comic books—graphic novels, memoir, nonfiction, and more—by Latinx writers and artists. The series will be rich and complex, bringing on projects with any balance of text and visual narrative, from larger graphic narratives to collections of vignettes or serial comics, in color and black and white, both fiction and nonfiction. Projects in the series will take up themes of all kinds, exploring topics from immigration to family, education to identity. The series will provide a place for exploration and boundary pushing, and will celebrate hybridity, experimentation, and creativity. Projects will be produced with quality and care, and will exemplify the full breadth of creative visual work being created by today’s Latinx artists.
