Product Description

Review

"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

About the Author

Gilbert Hernandez lives in Las Vegas, NV, with his wife and daughter. He is co-creator of the long-running, award-winning, and critically acclaimed series Love and Rockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maturely Written, Effectively Sentimental, Original, Artistically Moving 30 Jun. 2015
By Zolt Ichts Farber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Genius! This is one of the best graphic novels ever written, and I think that Beto's art really peaks here. When I was younger and read this material in Love and Rockets, in individual parts, I really lost the thread. When it is collected like this, I can see the overall arch much better. In addition, I ended up identifying more with the Maggie Hopey stories at that time. But now as an adult, I find Beto's work more appealing, complex, and interesting. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense Storytelling 14 April 2009
By M. Herrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gilbert Hernandez certainly has a peculiar and interesting way of portraying the small fictional town of Palomar in Mexico. From the beginning you can see where he wants to go with his storytelling with the integration of many characters all at once, almost bombarding you with each unique member of town. After a few issues, the key players are identified, and each aforementioned charcter is gradually reintroduced with a subtlety that presents them as familiar and intriguing throughout. I found myself constantly shocked and amazed, and ready for more.
5.0 out of 5 stars great redo 19 Mar. 2010

These books were fun to read in their old graphic novel form, but the new versions have a bunch of issues together, and have much better covers. If you have read love and rockets, then the story is the same.....cool books cool people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Work from an Old Master of Comic Book Art 24 Mar. 2014
By Lysystrata - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find many Hernandez brothers works not just entertaining, but pulsing with meaning. Most recently I've read Love and Rockets New Stories collected volume #3 and Beto's "Human Diastrophism". Both have been absorbing, moving, and easy to relate to.

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.
