It's also a political cartoon done by Latino cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz and syndicated through Universal Publishing Syndicate, which started in 2002.
It follows the life of his alter ego, "Eddie", but also its main character, the anthropomorphic cockroach 'Cuco' Rocha, and their band of friends. The local bar has a luchador complete with wrestling mask tending bar, there's a "Barriobucks" selling coffee - and they all satirize life in America, in a Doonesbury vein. Given that Alcaraz is of Mexican descent, it's got a Boondocks attitude in the sense that it satirizes the mainstream white culture from an outsider perspective.
Alcaraz is unapologetic in terms of his sometime contempt for "whitewashing" or negative attitudes to people who don't conform to the WASP ethnicity. He also is quite happy to satirize aspects of Mexican-American culture, although he obviously has no political axe to grind.
If your local paper has dropped it due to complaints, it is available online through Uclick's web portal.
