Gilbert Hernandez's characters bid "Farewell, My Palomar" as they exit the Eden of the Central American town in Volume 10 of the Love and Rockets Library. Locals have begun to drift up to the United States to seek their fortunes, but when an earthquake levels Palomar, ever-resourceful Luba and her clan are on the move once again. In the U.S. the lives of Maria's daughters — mayor and matriarch Luba, body-builder Petra, and therapist/film star Fritz — and their families become more and more intertwined. Mischievous children's show hostess Doralís MCs many (but not all) of the sisters' romances, and exploits are detailed in missives from comics-loving Venus to her fierce, one-armed cousin Casimira.

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

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

"To lovers of alternative comics, Hernandez is something of a saint..." – The Telegraph

"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

"Words can hardly describe how much I'm enjoying these affordable reprints of one of the five greatest comics series of all time." – The Comics Reporter
