245 pages, index. The importance of Mexican comic books is illustrated by Paul Theroux who wrote in The Old Patagonian Express as he was in the plaza in San Luis Potosi to buy a Mexican newspaper: "the rest of the train passengers bought comic books." Mexico has the highest per capita consumption of comic books in the world. Or as Libros de Mexico wrote in 1987: "En Mexico, el comic es un articulo de la primera necesidad." Bound in dark blue cloth lettered in white, spine lettering white. A fine bright copy.
