One of Paste's 10 Most Anticipated Comics of 2014

“There are certain things about my family Mom always preferred to keep hush hush."

The suppression of family history is the initial thread that ties together The Love Bunglers, featuring Hernandez’s longtime Love and Rockets heroine Maggie. Because these secrets can’t be dealt with openly, their lingering effect is even more powerful. But Maggie’s ability to navigate and find meaning in her life — despite losing her culture, her brother, her profession, and her friends — is what’s made her a compelling character. After a lifetime of losses, Maggie finds, in the second half, her longtime off and on lover, Ray Dominguez. In taking us through lives, deaths, and near-fatalities, The Love Bunglers encapsulates Maggie’s emotional history as it moves from resignation to memories of loss, to sudden violence (a theme in this story), and eventually to love and contentment. Much like John Updike in his four Rabbit novels, Jaime Hernandez has been following his longtime character Maggie around for several decades, all of which has seemed to be building towards this book in particular.

"Symphonic, tragic, revelatory, exciting and devastating as only great art can be, The Love Bunglers is one of the best comics ever made." – The Austin-American Statesman

"Even in a long career of masterpieces, Jaime’s story about missed opportunities for happiness is a revelation." – Publishers Weekly

"It goes without saying that The Love Bunglers completely knocked me out... Concise, moving, and incredibly bold, it’s like a cartooning master class.” — Adrian Tomine
