"Love & Rockets has been American fiction's best-kept secret."
..."Love & Rockets is a high point in the comics form, conventional in idiom, but not comparable to any strips before it."
"If you've never heard of Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, you've been missing out on two of the hidden treasures of our impoverished culture."
"I've never seen anything else in comics - I guess there might be something in literature - but in comics there's never been anybody that's touched what the Hernandez brothers have." -- Tom Spurgeon

This work is so expressive that I often stop reading and just rescan the last few pages for the artwork alone. Each page could be framed and used to decorate the house. There is a world in every frame; every inked line is a reference from life for the reader. The Palomar stories will make you think of your travels in Latin America, if you have any, and provide a window into an era if you don't. This work puts Anthropology into Comics.
If you've ever in your life loved a comic book, (and maybe if you didn't) you can't go wrong with the work of Gilbert Hernandez. I larga vida a los hermanos Hernández.
