Cholo is a term that stands strong for the subcultures that emerged from the Chicano neighborhoods in Southern California. This home-made assortment of comics, drawings, posters and photographs compiled by Ed Silvera in the eighties, is a nimble document of the underground latino experience. It is reminiscent of other publications such as “Teenage Angels,” a magazine that proudly chronicled a life of camaraderie and rebellion, reflecting an underrepresented and often wrongly interpreted identity of the West Coast.
