Covers & Excerpts: The Children of Palomar; The Love and Rockets Companion
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Love and RocketsJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezComing Attractions 25 Apr 2013 12:09 PM

It's a Love and Rockets two-fer! These books are in the can, ready for press, available for pre-order, and coming to you this Summer:

The Children of Palomar by Gilbert Hernandez

At last, all of Gilbert Hernandez's New Tales of Old Palomar are collected between two covers for your bookshelf, with a new name: The Children of Palomar. These stories flash back to the "Heartbreak Soup" days — and before! — and expand the Palomar mythology in new and surprising ways. When first released in comic form, this material was hailed by critics as some of Gilbert's best work ever, and the stories, while richly rewarding for longtime fans, stand on their own for new readers as well. (We've bundled it up with Gilbert's recent triumph Julio's Day in a nicely discounted set.) Get a sneak peek at 11 pages of story & art here.

The Love and Rockets Companion

Well, the Love and Rockets 30th anniversary books are missing the actual anniversary, but they are so worth the wait! The Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting)  is the ultimate guide to everything Palomar, Hoppers, and beyond, with 3 major interviews with the Hernandez brothers, character guides, unpublished artwork, timelines, a checklist, and even letter column highlights from the original series. Oh and by the way, the black title area on the cover is a removable sticker and the jacket folds out into a poster on one side and character family tree on the other! We've put together a 32-page preview with smatterings of pages from the major sections, which you can read and/or download here.

These two covers really show off the versatility of our lead designer Tony Ong, don't they?
