New format, still brilliant,
This review is from: Love and Rockets: New Stories (Love & Rockets New Stories) (Paperback)
If you're in any way interested in alternative/independent comics you will be familiar (or certainly ought to be) with the work of Jaime and Beto Hernandez, who've been doing Love & Rockets for over 25 years. In my view they are certainly two of the greatest artists and writers ever to have worked in comics.
I've been with them pretty much from the beginning and I still love their work as much as I did when I first discovered it. The amazing thing is that there's never been any drop in quality over the years. Okay, Beto's done some crazy stuff (some of it here), but both of them have been incredibly consistent. Brilliant stuff, all of it.
This is the 3rd incarnation of Love & Rockets, now taking the form of a square-ish perfect bound book, to be released annually. In this issue you get a long Penny Century story by Jaime and a collection of shorter strips by Beto. What can I say? These guys are masters at work and this is as good as any comic you'll read.
