One of the most requested volumes of the library is the scariest and sweetest volume of all! --Volume 6 of the complete Love and Rockets--showcases Gilbert's Palomar in the title story, in which a spooky bruja (witch) passes through town and leaves a load of trouble and weirdness in her raggedy wake. Meanwhile, in the city, Vincente has fallen on hard times and Israel tries to fill the void left by the disappearance of his twin sister whey were children. Gilbert shifts the gears from terror to romance with "For the Love of Carmen," telling of Heraclio's courtship of the diminutive bombshell. Not to be outdone, Jaime presents the best of his "hanging around" stories, "Locas vs. Locos" and "Mojado Power," featuring Maggie and Hopey, and guest-starring Hopey's lady-killer little brother Joey and Izzy's diary secrets. All this plus Rena Titanon, two stories featuring lost little girl Rocky and her pet robot Fumble, and a cover gallery.
