Gilbert Hernandez returns to that funky little Central American hamlet of his with another story set in the "Sopa de Gran Pena" days starring "The Children of Palomar" — in this case the obnoxious and picked-on Gato (whom LR fans will remember as Pipo's husband-to-be), Soledad, Guero, Pintor, and Arturo. The quintet of troublemakers' explorations across a bottomless chasm results in two of the kids coming face to face with... well, we won't spoil the surprise. But Sheriff Chelo is on the case and saves the day! With the very earliest Palomar stories recently released in a redesigned and affordable format in the Heartbreak Soup volume, these new stories of Palomar come along at the perfect time, and the superswanky Ignatz format provides Beto with a perfect canvas.

"As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts." – San Francisco Chronicle

"Even the passing Gilbert fan will find joy in this delightful entry in his oeuvre." – Comic Book Bin

"Some of Gilbert's loveliest art ever." – The Comics Reporter

"This may be Gilbert Hernandez's best work so far. Minimal without seeming spare and a huge argument for the 'comics as literature' thing having some traction." – Kevin Church

"You don't need to know the backstory of Love and Rockets to love these, nor do you even need to read them in order — each issue works totally on its own. (In fact, this is a pretty good introduction to Beto's world, and it's mostly kid-friendly to boot.) Taken together, though, the miniseries gives proof that the cartoonist's universe is as weird, wonderful, and expansive as any community cooked up by William Faulkner or Wendell Berry." – "Favorite Comics of 2007," Quiet Bubble
