Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The original, seminal Love & Rockets comic book series, which ran for 50 issues from 1981 to 1996, singlehandedly defined the post-underground generation of comics that spawned Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and so many others. Now collected into 15 volumes, Love & Rockets is a body of work that The Nation has described as "one of the hidden treasures of our impoverished culture." Created by brothers Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez, three Southern California Mexican-Americans armed with a passion for pop culture and punk rock, Love & Rockets gave a voice to minorities and women for the first time in the medium's then 50-year history and remains one of the greatest achievements in comic book history.

This collection was more than a little hit-or-miss for me, but since a lot of people have recommended Love & Rockets to me, I'm going to give the next few volumes a try. I did really love the artwork, but the lack of any real overarching plotline left me a little befuddled.
