Back in the mid-2000s when I first thought to bring some scholarly rigor to my otherwise scattershot seeking of pleasure (and pain) in the word-drawn Latinx storyworlds, I had no idea that the study of Latinx comics could be a thing. It is—and swiftly and robustly so. When Jorge (Newcastle University, UK) and Kiko (Instituto Franklin at the Universidad de Alcalá, Spain) invited me to write the Foreword to this special issue of CAMINO REAL: Estudios de las Hispanidades Norteamericanas on US Latinx comics, I jumped up and down—and at the chance. I wanted to celebrate. Latinx comics and their study have become mainstays in learning spaces in the US. And, their study is being shouted from the proverbial rooftops of a journal published in Spain. Wow!
