The authors of Strips, Toons, and Bluesies address such key issues as the intertwined origins of comics and animation; the sex, violence, and taboo breaking of 200 years of underground comics; the popular "Locas" stories of Jaime Hernandez??'s Love and Rockets; and the political and racial portrayals of African Americans in 1960s comics. The book also includes a 25-page history of comics from 1380 to today, a thorough and novel approach to the genre.
