In the face of social inequalities, sometimes strength for mobilization can be found through laughter. It is this ethos that Ilan Stavans employs in this politically minded graphic novel. Weaving humor with social commentary, Stavans tells a tale of a Latino man taking Los Angeles' mayoral office by storm - and refusing to stop there. Illustrated throughout by Roberto Weil, the story follows the life and political development of Mr. Spic - Samuel Patricio Inocencio Cárdenas - as he upends the political machine by owning up to and embracing his rough-and-tumble past, refusing to bend to corporate pressures, and using his influence to promote pacifism and tolerance. Progressive politics has always moved forward with the help of dedicated, singular individuals, and Mr. Spic - light-hearted as his story may be - hilariously exemplifies that model.
