Not only that, we've restocked with a fresh supply of signature plates for the volumes Heartbreak Soup, Human Diastrophism, Beyond Palomar, and Chance in Hell. Gilbert was a trouper and plowed through a stack of these while he was in town earlier this month.

Each bookplate is printed on acid-free cardstock and hand-signed by the author. Signature plates are limited in quantity and available only while supplies last and exclusively to individual consumers who purchase the associated books direct from Fantagraphics.

“Five six. Hundred twenty-eight pounds. Forty-three twenty-two thirty-six. High soft lisp. Genius level I.Q.” That’s how motivational speaker Mark Herrera sums up Rosalba “Fritz” Martinez, bombshell, former punkette, former psychiatrist, “Z” movie star — in this supremely sexy, constantly surprising graphic novel.

And Herrera should know, being only one of many to fall under Fritz’s “lithping” spell — others including slobbish rocker Scott “The Hog” and high school nerd turned obsessive bodybuilder Enrique Escobar (and that’s just her husbands).

Hernandez has taken this suite of stories (including the 48-page graphic novelette “High Soft Lisp”), originally serialized in Luba's Comics and Stories and the second volume of Love and Rockets, and fleshed them out with a dozen brand new pages, creating an original and inventive (and very steamy) volume that, through its connections to his main character Luba (Fritz is Luba’s half sister, and characters from the Luba stories pop up here), works both as a standalone graphic novel and a further exploration of Hernandez’s rich world.
