“Los Borrados”

A Chicano Quest for Identity in a Post-Apocalyptic, Culturally Defunct Hispanic Utopia (A Reinterpretive Chicano Comic)
  • Oscar “The Oz” Madrigal
Part of the New Directions in Latino American Cultures book series (NDLAC)


In 2039, six years before the 2045 date predicted by the U.S. Census, the Hispanic population explodes and Hispanics outnumber any other ethnic group in the former United States of America. Hispanics take demographic and political control, rename the country Hispanica, and reign as the dominant majority for seven years. But then civil war breaks out in the year 2046 because of the splitting of a linguistic hair.
