"Jaime Hernandez’s narrative is focused on the relationship between the past and present: While his Locas characters have a punk reunion in their old neighborhood of Hoppers, Hernandez explores the start of their friendships with flashbacks to their adolescent years. Like a lot of teenage friends, these women have drifted apart over the years but still have those memories to keep them connected." — The A.V. Club
“In both Gilbert and Jaime’s stories, we see characters defined by a past, porn or punk, and trying to reconcile it with who they want to be and who they want to be with. All of these characters have an image of what their lives should be but this issue is about what their lives are. Maybe it’s that difference that really defines who we are?” — Panel Patter
