Gilbert Hernandez

Gilbert Hernandez, born in 1957, enjoyed a pleasant childhood in Oxnard, California, with four brothers and one sister. In Gilbert’s words, they were “born into a world with comic books in the house.” His childhood enthusiasm for the medium was equaled only by his appetite for punk rock.

Initiated by older brother Mario and bankrolled by younger brother Ismael, Gilbert created Love and Rockets #1 with his brother Jaime in 1981. Over 30 years later, the series is regarded as a modern classic and the Hernandez brothers continue to create some of the most startling, original, and intelligent comic art ever seen.

From 1983 to 1996, Gilbert produced the now legendary Palomar saga, collected in the graphic novels Heartbreak Soup and Human Diastrophism, and considered to be one of the defining bodies of literature of its era.

Gilbert lives in Las Vegas, NV, with his wife Carol and daughter Natalia.

"I don't think there's ever been a greater cartooning talent in terms of what he brings the serial comic book form." – The Comics Reporter

"Gilbert Hernandez created some of the most memorable characters in popular fiction." – Los Angeles

"There's no denying that Beto's comics reflect one of the highest peaks the comics medium has yet achieved." – The A.V. Club

2007 & 2013 Eisner Award Nominee: Best Writer/Artist

Recipient of a 2009 United States Artists Literature Fellowship

2013 Pen Graphic Literature Award Winner
