Multicultural Comics: From Zap to Blue Beetle
Frederick Luis Aldama
Foreword by Derek Parker Royal

Uninversity of Texas Press (utexas.edu/utpress)
ReadOut Short: Multicultural Comics: From Zap to Blue Beetle is the first comprehensive look at comic books by and about race and ethnicity. The 13 essays  tease out for the general reader the nuances of how multicultural comics skillfully combine visual and verbal elements to tell richly compelling stories that gravitate around issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality within and outside the U.S. comic book industry. For those of you interested in the “LGBT” in multi-cultural comics, the second essay includes queer characters. —Preview: Troy Carrington
