I would like to start off by saying that the description of this book is misleading. Rosalba Martinez, better know as "Fritz", is one of the main characters of the book, but I would say it's more about her ex-husband, Mark Herrera. The book deals with their relationship, both leading up to their marriage, and after they are divorced.
I liked that this book presented things in a realistic way. Well, realistic fantasy way. There are people in your life who are in your life and it's not really by c
This Hernandez bros. offering gives a look at Fritz, the voluptuous, sexy, psycotherapist-turned-B actress- cousin of Luba (see their title Luba for more).

As usual, Gilbert and Beto deliver the story of a woman who makes odd choices. Fritz owns her sexuality but spends it with, frankly, losers. This story is told mostly from the point-of-view of one of her ex-husbands. Fritz is a pretty fascinating character. If you liked Love and Rockets and Luba, you'll enjoy this.

although this book is ostensibly about Fritz, we view her through others' thoughts, mostly her ex-husband Mark. it's entertaining, of course, because it's Beto. but it certainly doesn't have the depth of some of his other work.
Not quite at the same level, in my opinion, as his usual work, alas. Still very readable, though.
One of the sections was included in the Best American Comics book, I believe 2007. First time I read it I really enjoyed it. Reading it in the context of the book it seemed to me less interesting.
This backstory explores new territory in Fritzie's painful youth and failed marriages. Sometimes hard to read, but worth the pathos.

All too often, the Hernandez Bros work is heart-achingly heartbreaking.
Contains one really good story--"Fritz After Dark."
A cool tale by Gilbert Hernandez. I'm a fan.

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.
