The Children of Palomar by Gilbert Hernandez - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesLove and RocketsGilbert Hernandez 31 Jul 2013 9:05 AM

"As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts." – San Francisco Chronicle

"Some of Gilbert's loveliest art ever." – The Comics Reporter

"This may be Gilbert Hernandez's best work so far. Minimal without seeming spare and a huge argument for the 'comics as literature' thing having some traction." – Kevin Church

"You don't need to know the backstory of Love and Rockets to love these [stories]... (In fact, this is a pretty good introduction to Beto's world, and it's mostly kid-friendly to boot.) ...[The Children of Palomar] gives proof that the cartoonist's universe is as weird, wonderful, and expansive as any community cooked up by William Faulkner or Wendell Berry." – Quiet Bubble
