In the eleventh Complete Love and Rockets Library (the fifth chronologically in Gilbert Hernandez's Palomar main storyline), Ofelia threatens to write a book about Luba, and Fritz and Pipo fall in love.
The eleventh volume of The Complete Love and Rockets Library (the fifth chronologically in Gilbert Hernandez's Palomar main storyline) collects stories from 2000–2005. In Ofelia, the sisters, the kids, and the cousins are all settled comfortably in California after leaving Palomar in Luba and Her Family. Luba's and her cousin Ofelia's relationship has always been fraught, but when Ofelia threatens to write a book about Luba, past memories, secrets, resentments, and pain resurface. Meanwhile, Luba's children — genius Socorro, recently out-and-proud Doralis, and prickly Maricela — show that a talent for trouble may be hereditary. Luba's sisters, Fritz and Petra, swap lovers (as usual), but … are Fritz and family friend Pipo sittin' in a tree? These vividly drawn characters are charged with Hernandez's trademark complexity; they live, love, age, fight— and die—in this sweeping, multi-generational saga.Ofelia: A Love and Rockets Book is part of the Love and Rockets series.
"Engrossing, sexually explicit, violent, and satirical." — Booklist
"I don't really understand why the material of Love and Rockets isn't widely regarded as one of the finest pieces of fiction of the last 35 years. Because it is." — Neil Gaiman
