Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Included in this collection from two of the most brilliant cartoonists America are some of the finest achievements from Los. Bros! Jaime's classic stories "Izzy-in-Mexico" and "Spring 1982" demonstrate his narrative and graphic mastery, and his tongue-in-cheek soap opera "Ninety-Three Million Miles from the Sun... and Counting" is a classic Maggie and Hopey story. All this, plus "Li'l Ray" (done in the style of classic comics), "Below My Window Lurks My Head" (Ray vs. Danita's jealous and murderous ex-husband), and more. While Gilbert has only two major stories in this volume, they're some of his best: "Frida" is an extraordinary comics biography of the Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo, and "A Folk Tale" is a funny and very modern re-telling of...well, a classic folk tale.

Synopsis:

Three stories demonstrate Jaime's mastery, including a classic Maggie and Hopey story. Gilbert contributes an extraordinary comics biography of Frida Kahlo and a funny and very modern re-telling of a classic folk tale.

Synopsis:

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.
