For decades, mainstream comic books have depicted a predominantly white world, with the subject matter and audience growing more diverse only fairly recently. Now in its seventh year, the Latino Comics Expo provides a much-needed showcase of Latino comic book artists and writers, featuring 65 exhibitors and a program of workshops and talks. Highlights include an interview with this year's headliners, the Hernandez Brothers, creators of the seminal Love & Rockets books, as well as appearances by Cathy Camper, writer of the YA series Lowriders From Outer Space; Vicko Alvarez, whose comic Rosita Gets Scared focuses on an undocumented girl facing deportation; and cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz, a consultant on Pixar's upcoming film Coco, showing just how far Latino comics artists have come.
