Madriz (1984-87), a magazine devoted to comics, captured the spirit of Madrid's Movida, the music and club scene that made that city the youth capital of Europe in the years following the death of Franco.  We'll look at how its graphics, in a complex dialectical two-step, simultaneously reflected and created an identity of post dictatorial Spain.
