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 impoverish ...more

Still working my way through these fledgling efforts from Los Bros Hernandez and not quite feeling the landslide of love that that has overwhelmed readers of this ongoing series for the past thirty years. But, gosh darnit! I want to be in the know when it comes to what is praised as the pinnacle of underground comics. This time around, Jaimie has his punk mechanic Maggie pine after her boss Race Rand while the two do a bullshit job for a creepy mogul on a Latin-flavored isle on the verge of revo ...more

The beginning of "Love and Rockets" was non-stop fun, and Jaime Hernandez showed us people we never saw before in comics: Maggie and Hopey, two young latina bi-sexual punk rock girls. We saw them going to punk shows, getting drunk, Maggie escorting her lady wrestler aunt, Hopey playing bass in Ape Sex, Maggie working as a sci-fi robot/spaceship mechanic, etc.
There will never be anything like these comics, so read them over and over again, they never get boring.

Although Jaime gets the cover and the book is titled after his story from this volume, I felt this volume was dominated by Beto. The first 70-odd pages are devoted to Jaime's 'Mechanics' tale, where Maggie is back with Rand Race on a fairly hopeless job. Things happen, some wackiness ensues while back home Hopey has a minor freakout and runs back to her mother...then comes back. Just another day in the lives of the Hoppers gang, with no real revelations but plenty of eye-goggling black & whi ...more

In my reviews of the first two L&R volumes, I expressed hope that L&R would get better or would start to grow on me. At this point, I think both of these hopes are being realized. The tricky thing is that we are alternately presented with the works of Jaime Hernandez and Gilbert Hernandez (and in other volumes, Mario Hernandez). There are common denominators between the brothers' work: skillful black and white artwork, strong characters decidedly not from Hollywood central casting, and a ...more

I've heard a lot about the Hernandez brothers (Jaime and Gilbert) and I've even read a few of their stories in anthologies. However, this is the first time I've read one of their books. I picked this one up at the library.

I really enjoyed this book. Jaime's artwork is fantastic. He has a very classical style to his art work and his use of silhouetting is great. In addition to great artwork, his stories are interesting and compelling.

Gilbert's artwork is not as refined as Jaime's, but it is stil

This is my first exposure to Los Bros Hernandez, and it definitely won't be my last. 80s and 90s comics about mechanics, small Mexican towns, and the relationships that bind us. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this volume of the collected works. The main story is one of Jaime's more fantastic and the Palomar stories in this one are heartbreaking and funny. Sharp dialogue.

Getting easier to follow, not as excessively wordy. I'm kind of liking the shift from weird sci-fi for its own sake to human relationships.

Some excellent HeartBreak Soup and Maggie before she was all cool and bisexual.

The ratio of Jaime to Gilbert in this volume is not ideal, but the Gilbert stuff is still great.

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.
