Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 by the Hernandez Brothers

Love and Rockets: New Stories #1
By Hernandez Brothers

Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 reboots the beloved ongoing "Love and Rockets" comic into a fat, all-new annual graphic novel length package.

Jaime launches the new format with a story that's unusual even for him... A full-on, pulse-pounding super-hero yarn! Maggie's longtime friend Penny Century has finally realized her longtime dream of acquiring super-powers, but at a terrible personal cost. Now she rampages through the galaxy, half mad with grief, and a motley group of super-heroes assembles to try to stop her -- led by Maggie's girlfriend Angel and her mysterious neighbor Alarma, and involving a number of characters longtime Love and Rockets fans will delight in recognizing.

The epic-length 50-page story (only the first half of the saga!) combines Jaime's razor sharp characterization and superlative art with wildly inventive, Kirby-style slam-bang super-hero action.

Then Gilbert Hernandez explodes with a similarly generous helping of his fantastically creative one-shot short stories: "Tamanny" (rookie cop vs. demonic drug users); "Papa" (a turn-of-the-century story involving a traveling businessman); "The New Adventures of Duke and Sammy" (super-powered Martin and Lewis impostors in outer space); "The Tender Room" (Into the Wild as re-imagined by Beto); "Chiro el Indio" (written by third brother Mario Hernandez); and "Never Say Never" (a kangaroo gets lucky in Las Vegas).

One hundred pages of Jaime, Gilbert and Mario Hernandez at the peak of their powers: this is a major graphic-novel event!

100-page black & white 6.625" x 9" softcover • $14.99

Band of Brothers
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim DeitchJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezGene Deitch 24 Jul 2008 10:58 AM

Ah, it's a beautiful day in Seattle and currently the entire top floor of our building is occupied solely by myself and Adam Grano while everyone else gets their nerd on in San Diego. I could get used to not going to Comic-Con. (Note to Adam: can we get a ping pong table in here, toot-sweet?

Anyway, we just received advance copies of two new books (these are also debuting at the con) that will hit stores in early September: LOVE & ROCKETS: NEW STORIES #1 and DEITCH'S PICTORAMA. It occured to me that this means we will be releasing two books, on the same day, by two different sets of cartooning/sibling legends. Kind of cool.

Gilbert Hernandez on Dave Stevens
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Gilbert Hernandez 13 Mar 2008 10:19 AM

When I heard the news of Dave Stevens' passing this week, at the much too young age of 52, the first two people I thought about were my pals Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez. I knew they were close to Dave so I sent them my condolences. Gilbert wrote me the following email, which I thought some of Dave's fans might enjoy, so he kindly consented to let me share it. R.I.P., Mr. Stevens.

Dave was always Dave. No matter where I saw him, at the premiere of THE ROCKETEER in Hollywood, or when he was mobbed by fans at GLAMOURCON, he would turn his head to me and ask "what do ya think? " Jaime and I met Dave at his studio in 1984. It was next to a gas station that was later used in David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY. The studio that Dave shared with Bill Stout and Richard Hescox was a matress outlet by then. Right away we hit it off having similar interests, most notably the subject of curvy women. That's one thing he never outgrew. God bless him.

He was neurotic as any perfectionist when it came to finishing an art project, but when he delivered, he delivered. One of the few pieces of original art I own and cherish is the one he did for GIRL CRAZY #1, and not because he did it for free, either. Actually, he refused payment for it because he said he did it for fun. That was Dave and he lived for fun. That's the way I like it.

Gilbert Hernandez... Manga!?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Gilbert Hernandez 12 Feb 2008 8:35 AM

Read it here. (Thanks, Dirk.) And if you haven't read Gilbert's Speak of the Devil miniseries from Dark Horse, do. I read the first four last night and it's just great. Quintessential Gilbert, but at his most accessible. A good one for those unfamiliar with his brilliance.

In the last two days, I've read: Speak of the Devil #1-4, Omega the Unknown #1-4 by Lethem & Dalrymple, The Education of Hopey Glass by Jaime Hernandez, ACME Novelty Library #18 by Chris Ware, Mister Wonderful by Daniel Clowes, The Maakies with the Wrinkled Knees by Tony Millionaire, a rough draft of our forthcoming Unlovable collection by Esther Pearl Watson, and half of Julie Doucet's 365 Days. It occurred to me that I'm not sure I've ever read so many good comics in such a short amount of time. It's an embarrassment of riches 'round these parts for us funnybook aficionados.
