Ranked on Publishers Weekly's Fifth Annual Critics Poll

Ranked #2 for 2010 (tied with Love and Rockets: New Stories #3) by Sean T. Collins of Robot 6

“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.

"The most riveting, chilling graphic novel I've read so far this year... a great, shockingly dark piece of work." – Douglas Wolk, Comics Alliance

"…High Soft Lisp is brief, razor-sharp and ferocious, a black-hole-black Almodovaresque comedy..." – Douglas Wolk, TIME/Techland

"This book is incredible... The world in this book is one I wouldn’t want to live in but I can’t stop thinking about the story of Fritz." – Nick Gazin, Vice

"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
