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.
Jaime Hernandez is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning cartoonist and a lifelong Los Angelean.
*Starred Review* Three years into Love and Rockets’ format switch from several-times-yearly comic book to annual trade paperback, the Hernandez brothers have finally hit their stride with a collection that is every bit as satisfying as the peak years of the long-running series. Gilbert opens with an uncharacteristic sci-fi saga that casts his sometimes-actress character Fritz as a sensual alien half-beast, followed by a sequel of sorts in which a fledgling actress from last year’s Love and Rockets volume prepares to star in a remake of the tale. Both stories benefit from Gilbert’s boldly confident graphics. But longtime fans will respond most strongly to Jaime’s linked trio of stories featuring his beloved “Locas” characters, all limned in his elegantly economical style. First we get a brief update on the status of his long-suffering heroine Maggie Chascarrillo, followed by a lengthy, revealing flashback to the childhood days of Maggie and her siblings. Then, back in the present, Maggie goes on an achingly poignant date with former lover Ray Dominguez. A quarter-century after Love and Rockets first rocked the alt-comics world, both brothers remarkably remain at the top of their game. --Gordon Flagg
