Esperanza: A Love and Rockets Book by Jaime Hernandez - Previews, Pre-Order
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesLove and RocketsJaime Hernandez 14 Jun 2011 4:41 AM

Esperanza: A Love and Rockets Book (Love and Rockets Library: Locas Book 5) by Jaime Hernandez

Esperanza: A Love and Rockets Book
(Love and Rockets Library: "Locas" Book 5)

by Jaime Hernandez

248-page black & white 7.5" x 9.25" softcover • $18.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-449-8

Ships in: July 2011 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Esperanza, the fifth volume of “Locas” stories by Jaime Hernandez, collects the remainder of the stories from the acclaimed Love and Rockets Volume II, picking up where 2010’s Penny Century collection left off.

Taking its title from Hopey Glass's birth name, Esperanza follows the somewhat settled-down ex-punkette in her new life as a schoolteacher's assistant — which doesn't mean that her romantic travails have gotten any simpler. Speaking of romantic travails, Maggie's former squeeze Ray Dominguez meets, and becomes obsessed with, the unhinged but fiendishly sexy "Frogmouth," even as he becomes peripherally involved in a brutal murder. But the longest story in the collection focuses on an older and wiser Maggie, facing down her demons in a cataclysmically eventful return to Hoppers.

Esperanza is also available as part of Love and Rockets Library: The Locas Collection — 5 volumes at a savings of nearly $20! This new set contains every story from the "Locas" saga from Love and Rockets Volumes 1 and 2 and Jaime's solo series. The ultimate Jaime collection, and a great gift idea!

Thomas Rehhoff passes along another fun piece from his collection of original Hernandez Bros. art: this 1994 New Yorker illustration by Jaime illustrating the good ol' Kirk vs. Picard debate, presumably for the magazine's review of Star Trek: Generations — whatta stinker that movie was.

Maggie as Batgirl - Jaime Hernandez

Maggie Chascarillo (somewhat embarrassedly, it seems) dons (or doffs?) the Batgirl costume in this 2006 convention sketch by Jaime Hernandez recently posted on the Batgirl, Heck Yeah! Tumblr.
