DUDA (English: "DOUBT") is a Spanish-language magazine that ran for over one thousand issues, first published in Mexico by Editorial Posada from 1971 until 1985, and afterward by Editorial Indice until its cancellation. The topics, covered as both standard articles and in graphic narrative format, included all manner of items of kook interest, from ufology to cryptozoology and the supernatural. Guillermo Mendizábl Lizalde gave the mission statement of the magazine as follows in his first editorial:

Siempre ha habido en el mundo dos clases de hombres: los que cierran los ojos ante lo nuevo y los que los abren. Esta revista está dirigida a los segundos: a los que no tienen temor de mirar hacia el fondo del espacio exterior, hacia las profundidades desconocidas de la tierra y del mar, hacia donde quiera que se presenten los enigmas que no es capaz aún de resolver la ciencia humana.

"There have always been two kinds of men in the world: those who close their eyes to the new and those who open them. This magazine is addressed to the latter: to those who are not afraid to look into the depths of outer space, into the unknown depths of the earth and the sea, wherever there are enigmas that are not yet capable of solution by human science."

Illustrators who worked on the magazine's comic book features included Luis Chávez Peón, Rubén Lara y Romero, Juan Rangel, Antonio Cardoso, and others.
