This, then, was my introduction to the idiosyncratic and fantastically imagined worlds of Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez. A landmark series from the alternative comics world of the 1980s, "Love and Rockets" followed the black-and-white serial narratives of indelible characters for 15 years, explicitly influenced by the renaissance of punk rock in the late 1970s; after a hiatus, it reappeared in 2001. The brothers don't collaborate on the same comics; rather, Gilbert created the "Heartbreak Soup" ep ...more

Something I've neglected to point out in my previous reviews of this series is how much I love to see Maggie blowing up! Not that I'm happy for her character or anything for putting on weight, but the way Jaime accomplishes it subtly and effectively is notable.
This volume's strongest efforts, though, are once again from Gilbert. The eponymous story of a bruja who comes to town and her effects on Palomar is a nicely self-contained example of how striking a storyteller he is (and possibly of his i

Love And Rockets And Witches

I feel sorry for people who haven't read Love and Rockets. It's some of the best comic book storytelling of all time. I personally like it when it gets a bit on the weird side. The two-part title tale in this volume is one of my favorite Gilbert Hernandez stories. Weird witch. Baby skulls. Luba trapped in a well. Mysterious disease. That story itself could have been stretched out to fill a whole volume.

I ordered a bunch of Love and Rockets trades to remind myself why I love comics. This is one of the series that made me a believer. This was the first to arrive... Still a bit wordy, but the brothers were beginning to trust their art to tell the story. The ability of both artists to swing time and place on their characters and never lose the reader is a gift. Viva Los Bros Hernandez!

More classic Gilbert Hernandez action, together with some inconsequential Maggie-Hopey stuff from Jaime. I do like the short Rocket Rhodes pieces by Jaime (about a girl and her robot who start travelling through dimensional holes to other planets. I wish Jaime had written more stuff like this.

Not my favorite Love and Rockets collection. Still awesome, though.

Duck Feet showcases Gilbert's Palomar in the title story, in which a spooky witch passes through town and leaves a load of trouble and weirdness in her raggedy wake.

On re-reading it fifteen years later, Love & Rockets is even better than I remember it.

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.
