Ojitos Borrosos by Inés Estrada. $10

153 digest size pages, color cover, black and white interiors.

Estrada's art has a wild exterior to it, but I've always been struck by the strong storytelling and humane characters that are the anchor of her art. This book collects the bulk of her work, and it's such a pleasure to read and own. Very short pieces that read quick but impress with the emotional commitment to the figures on the page. The characters act out the stories with real heart---tough hearts at that.  Pages and page of cartoony and scratchy drawings! Great stuff and hard to find in the USA! (Please note: these comics are written in Spanish but have English translations printed on each page).
