Five women stand in a police lineup; four of them are garishly dressed super-women — perfectly normal, because this is, after all, the cover of a comic book. A closer look, however, reveals a fifth woman who seems thoroughly out of place — mousy, in a bathrobe and curlers, smoking a cigarette. Surely she's here by mistake — or is she?

From this very first cover of the very first issue of Love and Rockets in 1982, Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez (along with their brother, Mario) have created artwork that has subverted, contradicted and celebrated the history of comics while making it their own.

For the first time, these iconic comic book covers from the original Love and Rockets comic book series (and the earliest trade paperbacks) have been restored and collected.

This is a gorgeous, oversized art book and the perfect gift for fans of the series that virtually defines alternative comics.
