• Review: For Robot 6, Chris Mautner waxes rhapsodic about Humbug: "It's very easy with a book of this nature to engage in wild hyperbole... And yet, how else to talk about a project of this nature, a large collection of work featuring some of the most stellar cartoonists of their day, originally edited by one of the most important and influential humorists (and I really don't think this is hyperbole here - I'd put him up there with Richard Pryor in terms of significance) of the 20th century?... Something should be said about the packaging and restoration work, which is nothing short of astounding... I think it’s pretty safe to say that this collection will be on my top ten/best books of 2009 list at the end of the year. Really, how could it not? Apparently I like it more than breathing."

• List: From GQ, another one of those ubiquitous "what to read after Watchmen" lists, this one with The Girl from HOPPERS by Jaime Hernandez ("Hoppers... makes Gotham and Metropolis seem as bland as Scranton"), Safe Area Gorazde by Joe Sacco ("Graphic in every sense of the term... it’s the best argument around for comics as a journalistic medium"), and Bottomless Belly Button by Dash Shaw ("honest, meditative"), as well as work by Jessica Abel and Charles Burns

• Opinion: Zak Sally posts his take on the Watchmen movie

• Things to see: Stills from a short film adaptation of a Paul Hornschemeier story

La Educación de Hopey Glass by Jaime Hernandez

La educación de Hopey Glass
By Jaime Hernandez

Read Love and Rockets en Español! This translated edition of The Education of Hopey Glass comes to us from our colleagues at La Cupula in Spain. We're pleased to offer this treat for L&R collectors and Spanish-reading fans in the U.S. (and around the world)! See the description in Spanish below:

Maggie está casi ausente en esta última recopilación de Love and Rockets ya que Jaime Hernandez se centra en Hopey, la amiga de toda la vida de Maggie, y en su ex novio Ray. Y además, un vasto reparto de secundarios: Grace, el otro amigo de Hopey; Elmer, un electrificante autoproyecto de gánster; el callejero y endurecido Doyle; la divertida "Angel de Tarzana"; la madura pero aún marchosa Terry, así como la misteriosa superheroína Alarma.

En una de las dos principales líneas argumentales, Ray persigue a la peligrosa y molesta "Voz de rana", aspirante a actriz y perpetuo desastre, por bares de mala muerte, callejones y convenciones de comics... Siempre a la espera de una última e inseparada consumación. Mientras, en "Día a día con Hopey," Jaime demuestra su maestría a la hora de representar el pálpito de la vida cotidiana en el retrato de Hopey luchando con su nuevo empleo y sos amantes que van y vienen. Una semana más en la galopante educación de Hopey Glass.

132-page black & white 7” x 9.75” hardcover • $18.00

Jaime Hernandez pencils for New Stories #2 found on the backside of the original art for the upcoming Free Comic Book Day comic.

UPDATE: Jaime dropped a note to mention that this is from an old L&R issue. The guy's right! I saw Angel (not shown here) and thought New Stories but this would have been the end of the L&R2 run. And, of course, that's Frogmouth. Tempestuous Vivian Frogmouth.
