Penny Century starts off with a blast with “Whoa, Nellie!,"” a unique graphic novelette in which Maggie, who has settled in with her pro-wrestler aunt for a while, experiences that wild and woolly world firsthand. Then it’'s back "to chills and spills with the old cast of Hopey, Ray Dominguez, and Izzy Ortiz — including Maggie's romantic dream fantasia “"The Race”" and the definitive Ray story, “"Everybody Loves Me, Baby.”"

Penny Century also features two major “flashback” stories: “"Bay of Threes”" finally reveals the full back story behind Beatriz “Penny Century” Garcia, Maggie’'s long-time, bleached-blonde bombshell friend (who gives this volume its name), while "“Home School"” is one of Hernandez'’s popular looks at his characters’ lives from when they were little kids, drawn in an adorable simplified Dennis the Menace type style. This volume also includes the Maggie & Hopey Color Fun one-shot, reproduced here in glorious black and white.
