This first collection of Love and Rockets chronicles the adventures of the spunky Maggie, her bestie and sometimes lover Hopey, and their circle of friends, including their bombshell friend Penny Century, Maggie's weirdo mentor Izzy — as well as the wrestler Rena Titañon and Maggie's handsome love interest, Rand Race... "Maggie the Mechanic" collects the earliest, punkiest, most heavily sci-fi stories of Maggie and her circle of friends, and you can see the artist (who drew like an angel from the very first panel) refine his approach: Despite strong shifts in tone from story to story, the stunning art and razor sharp characterizations keep this collection consistent and enthralling throughout.
