Mario Hernandez (b. 1953, Oxnard, California) co-created Love and Rockets, the long-running, internationally acclaimed comic book series. In 1981, he and his younger brothers, Gilbert and Jaime, self-published the first Love and Rockets zine. The Hernandez brothers’ anthology title became Fantagraphics’ flagship comic in 1982 when the independent began publishing it. He drew and wrote the occasional story for Love and Rockets, such as “Somewhere in California,” and still contributes writing, story ideas, and dialogue. In 1993, his one-shot solo comic, Brain Capers, was published, and he worked on projects such as Mr. X, Citizen Rex, and the anthology Real Girl. He won an Inkpot Award in 2012 and lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and children.
