The Hernandez Brothers are back with the second eye-popping volume of Love and Rockets: New Stories, your annual 100-page dollop of all-new L&R material.

In the concluding 50-page half of Jaime’s outrageous, acclaimed, full-on superhero mash-up “Ti-Girls Adventures,” our protagonist, rookie do-gooder Boot Angel, learns more hard lessons about becoming a superheroine. Eventually, just about the entire cast gets together in a big family reunion that unexpectedly takes place in Maggie’s tiny, messy one-bedroom apartment.

Sandwiched between the concluding chapters of Jaime's story, Gilbert turns in two mind-benders of his own. “Hypnotwist” is Gilbert’s 39-page epic story of a beautiful, leggy redhead’s surreal journey into a night filled with mysterious shady characters, dreamlike violence, and sparkling retro spike heels. But is it real, or something else? For readers trying to parse the truth, Gilbert ups the ante by telling the whole story without using a single word. And "Sad Girl" (previewed in our 2009 Free Comic Book Day offering) is the tale of a disaffected young bombshell actress nicknamed "Killer" and the web of jealousy, gossip, notoriety and mystery that surrounds her.

"Ti-Girls Adventures" ranks #18, Best Comics (First Run or Definitively Collected) of 2009, The Comics Reporter

"The second volume in the new format picks up directly from the first. Jaime concludes his wry but affectionate take on the superhero genre, distaff division, while Gilbert contributes a short but piquant look at a fledgling actress and a longer, surreal tale of magic shoes and alternate lives. The latter tour de force is presented entirely visually, without the use of a single word.... [T]he brothers’... hallmarks — Jaime’s economically sleek artwork and smartly daffy humor, and Gilbert’s graphic sophistication and experimental boldness — remain firmly in evidence." – Gordon Flagg, Booklist
