Organized by Chris Sperandio

Wildly popular in Mexico, the art of micro-cuentos, or “mini-tales,” are little known internationally. Beginning in the 1960s and continuing through the mid-seventies, these idiosyncratic Mexican comic books, measuring three by four and a half inches, present genre stories that carry subtle political critique. Between Love and Madness is comprised of approximately 380 works, including original interior art, original painted cover art, and ephemera.
