Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2007, Love and Rockets was finally released in its most accessible form yet: As a series of compact, thick, affordable, mass-market volumes that present the whole story in perfect chronological order. This 5-volume set contains every story from the "Locas" saga from Love and Rockets Volumes 1 and 2 and Jaime's solo series.

This set includes the following volumes (for more information on each book, click the titles below):

Maggie the Mechanic The first of three volumes collecting the Love and Rockets stories of spunky Maggie, her brash best friend and sometimes lover Hopey, and their friends. These are the earliest, punkiest, most heavily sci-fi stories.

The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S. Centered on one of Jaime's peaks, "The Death of Speedy," the second comprehensive "Locas" collection (with stories not in the hardcover) alternates between wrestling action and the triangle of Maggie, Hopey and Ray D.

Perla La Loca In these classic "Locas" stories, Jaime drops a narrative bomb on Hopey (and us) in "Wigwam Bam"; Maggie contends with her inner demons, a murderous hooker, and an amorous lady wrestler; and Maggie, getting married?

Penny Century The fourth volume of the definitive “Maggie” series repackaging compiles Jaime's solo comic Penny Century and his subsequent return to Love and Rockets (Vol. II), plus wrestling fun with Whoa, Nellie!

Esperanza In this batch of “Locas” stories from Love and Rockets Vol. II, an older and wiser Maggie faces down her demons, Hopey transitions from tending bar to tending schoolkids, and Ray tussles with the volatile bombshell Vivian.

Praise for Jaime Hernandez:

"One of the most talented artists our polyglot culture has produced." – The New York Times Book Review

"The rough-edged Latin American minimalist, stylized black and white comic strips have been widely described as the graphic equivalent to the fabulism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel laureate." – The Times of London

"Jaime's Maggie [is one] of the great characters in contemporary American fiction." – LA Weekly

"Not like it needs saying, but Jaime Hernandez is a goddamn genius." – Resonance

"Jaime Hernandez is taking a lifetime to create The Great American Graphic Novel, and if you're lucky, you'll outlive him. That way, you get to see how it ends." – R.C. Baker, The Village Voice
