"As you might expect, Love And Rockets: The Covers is very attractive, very well-put together, and the fact that the production values on display flatter the work inside gives you an idea of just how far ahead of the curve the Hernandez Brothers could work at times." -Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
"Love and Rockets #1 is marvelous. I hope one day to attain the level of the cover drawing myself... it is a perfect drawing." - Moebius, 1982
228-page black & white (with some color) 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $24.99 ISBN: 978-1-60699-647-8
"...what continues to make Wandering Son a fantastic read is the frankness it presents developmental sexual identity...Few comics will challenge you like Wandering Son. It covers a topic not widely written about or discussed, and does so in a tactful, warm, embracing manner." -Nick Rowe, Read Comic Books
"While most manga about cross-dressing involve lots of shrieking and embarrassment, Wandering Son takes a quieter, more introspective approach.... It's a very sweet manga with realistic characters - no dead parents or crazy teachers, just ordinary, loving families and supportive friends. This manga is a beautifully produced, hardcover book, and... it's worth every penny." - Brigid Alverson, MTV Geek
248-page full-color 7.25" x 10" hardcover • $39.99 ISBN: 978-1-60699-600-3"
"For fans of comics from the dawn of the comic book era, this book is an indispensable gift from Blake Bell and Fantagraphics." - Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin
"What's exciting for me about this book is watching Everett develop as an artist and storyteller and figure out the medium in relatively rapid fashion.... What you see here are the glimmers of an artist struggling to comprehend the potential of this relatively new medium [and] how he can push it to match his own interests." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6
