New Tales of Old Palomar returns us to where the first Heartbreak Soup story left off. All three issues will deal with the classic characters of Palomar like Pipo, her sister Carmen, sheriff Chelo, and the gang of boys who help start it all: studious Heraclio, tall and fey Israel, disfigured but good natured Vicente, and always horny Jesus and Satch. In book one, "Children of Palomar," there are mysterious thieves stealing food from wherever they can grab it the quickest, then they're off like lightning. Sheriff Chelo and some citizens do their best to solve this mystery, but nobody seems to be able to catch these bandits in action until Pipo puts her soccer-trained legs to work and goes after them herself. We are reintroduced to the classic style of the Palomar stories where everybody in town helps one another. That is, except for a person or two that decide to ignore that tradition.

2007 Eisner Award nominee: Best Writer/Artist (Gilbert Hernandez)

"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

"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
