After ten years spent in Palomar and the fantasy worlds of BEM and Errata Stigmata, Gilbert Hernandez brought it all back home with this sharp contemporary tale. This story, which ran under the simple title "Love and Rockets" in Love and Rockets from 1990 to 1992, takes us from plush Beverly Hills to the dangerous East side and introduces us to a dizzyingly diverse cast of ...more

Gilbert's stories move north to southern California, where characters that fled the central American village of Palomar find themselves as cleaning ladies and flower sellers fearing both "la migra" and the violence against people of color and the queer (both of which they are).

What really works for this story is that the characters of Riri and Marciela do not suddenly exist for the purposes of telling a story about the relationships between classes and races and sexualities, but have a life and

Gilbert takes us north of the border(s) for the most part in this sprawling but short, convoluted story about various characters around LA...and their varying degrees of connection to Palomar. The new characters are thinly filled, and sometimes a bit stereotyped, but it's an interesting and entertaining story. If anything can be said for this one, it's that it doesn't go the way we're led to expect. There's no great crashing climax, and what Beto has to say about humanity is, perhaps, not what w ...more

This was pretty good, but I suspect I might have liked it better if I hadn't been hearing for years how AMAZING L&R is. Still, I liked the art and it certainly through the music, fashion and characters' interactions vividly recalled the time and place, which was LA just before those big riots. I can't really say much without giving major spoilers, but there was no resolution to any of the stories at the end, which I wasn't expecting, but I liked.

This small volume gave me a introduction to the Love and Rockets graphic epic. Although I thought it was good, it was too crude for me. Exposes a street world of rockers, drugs, and social injustice.

A bit of a departure from the rest of the series. Didn't love or hate it.

Amazingly large cast of characters; a testament to Beto that the reader can keep everyone straight.

Gilbert and his brother Jaime Hernández often write together under the name "Los Bros Hernandez".

Gilbert Hernandez, born in 1957, enjoyed a pleasant childhood in Oxnard, California, with four brothers and one sister. In Gilbert’s words, they were “born into a world with comic books in the house.” His childhood enthusiasm for the medium was equaled only by his appetite for punk rock.
