A History of Latino Comics: "The Underground"

Moderated by Latino Comics Expo Co-Founder , Ricardo Padilla & Artist Jaime Crespo, the audience will get a sneak peek at the origins of the Underground Comix scene of the 1960s-70s, and how it stimulated the Latino comics movement. From hanging out with Spain Rodriguez and MAD's Sergio Aragones, we will see how the new creativity and freedom of the 60s and 70s, ushered in the golden age of Latino comics.
