University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines Edgar Clement’s graphic novel Operación Bolívar. Behind the novel’s unique narrative premise is a long view of globalization in the Americas, from the European conquest of native peoples in the early sixteenth century, to the subsequent forceful imposition of a Eurocentric mercantilism by the colonizing powers, to the transnationalization of domestic markets under the twentieth-century hegemony of the United States.

Keywords:   Mexican comic books, graphic novels, Americas, European conquest, mercantilism
