Here is a powerful piece—“A Cartoon History of Colonialism in Puerto Rico: A primer on how the island became the last colony”—written by Ed Morales and illustrated by Omar Banuchi. I find it particularly compelling in the context of recent developments. [And, for my students in the SPAN 433 class, this brief, illustrated historical account may remind you of some sections of Felices días, Tío Sergio.]
This brief history of colonialism was published in the Village Voice’s “Six Months Later” column on March 19, 2018. This was followed by the equally compelling graphic piece, “Living in the Dark: A Graphic Novela (True tales from Puerto Rico’s ongoing power outages)” by Edgardo Miranda Rodríguez and Ivelisse Rivera Quiñones.
