Book Description

20 May 2010 Love & Rockets
Picking up right after Perla La Loca, this compilation of stories from Jaime Hernandez's solo comic Penny Century charts the further lives of his beloved 'Locas'. The collection starts off with 'Woah, Nellie!', a unique graphic novelette in which Maggie, who has settled with her pro-wrestler aunt for a while, experineces that wild and wooly world first-hand. Then it's back to chills and spills with the old cast of Hopey, Ray, Dominguez and Izzy Ortiz - including Maggie's romantic dream fantasia 'The Race' and the definitive Ray story, 'Everybody Loves Me, Baby.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 1 April 2013

Only recently discovered Jaime Hernandez' Locas stories from love and rockets - they're fantastic. Entertaining and touching, you get a real sense of following a group of real people through their lives. And really makes me miss my younger days of being reckless and carefree. This is part of a series of complete reprints starting with the book Maggie the Mechanic, so take care to read them in the correct order. I quickly went through the whole series and was very sad to reach the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Rockets Rocks!!!! 3 May 2010
By Todd W. Rittenhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you like this series then this is a good addition to the collection. I especially like these big new multi-issue books they are in, and the covers are also better than the originals. More classy.

I like Penny and the Loco Chicas. The stories in this book made it clear what happened to Penny to make her what she became.

3.0 out of 5 stars a time in the wilderness 6 Nov 2012
By Hotrodimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Jaime really lost the plot for a while after the conclusion of L&R vol. 1. This is easily the weakest collection in the series and is a bit of a chore to get through - but it's totally worth it because he got a second wind with L&R Vol II and then "New Stories" volume 3 onward, all of which contain some of the best work that he's ever done, EVER. It's worth it to read through this volume to get the important contextual connecting stories, and there are still a few gems like "Home school."
