|Cartoons and comics have played important roles in the political and social processes of Latin American for more than a century.

Ten countries of Central and South America and Spanish Caribbean are dealt with in separate chapters. Comic art forms/media that are subjects of chapters are animation, caricature, comic books, comic strips, humor magazines, and political cartoons. Approaches include historical and contemporary overviews, cartoonist profiles, and comic/cartoon character analyses. Authors of the chapters represent some of the most knowledgeable individuals in Latin American comic art.
