In a real world, not the screwed-up world we have now, [Gilbert Hernandez] would be considered one of the greatest American storytellers. It's so hard to do funny, tragic, local and epic, and he does all simultaneously, and with great aplomb. -- Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
Words can hardly describe how much I'm enjoying these affordable reprints of one of the five greatest comics series of all time. --Tom Spurgeon"
Poison River [contained in full in Beyond Palomar], a graphic novel by Gilbert Hernandez, gave me a master lesson in real writing. It was beautiful beyond words and violent and tender and heartbreaking. From that moment on, I knew what kind of writer I wanted to be. It's the great unknown novel of the 20th Century. --Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao"
Beyond Palomar collected two of Hernandez's ground-breaking works about the Central American village in a single affordable book. "Poison River" traces the pre-Palomar childhood of Luba, her teenage marriage to gangster Peter Rio, the secrets behind her mysterious mother, all the way up to her eventual escape and arrival in Palomar. "Love and Rockets X" takes us from Beverly Hills to the dangerous east side and introduces us to a diverse cast of characters, including a lowlife rock 'n' roll band, a posse of black youths, a ditzy Hollywood mom and her spoiled son, a gay activist filmmaker and his rebellious, half-Iraqi daughter, and a group of racist thugs that set the story in motion.
