Love & Rockets

Brothers Jamie and Gilbert Hernandez have spent over 30 years collaborating on Love and Rockets. With each brother's work containing similar themes - love, family, and the struggles of daily life - the executions are quite different. Each artist's story arcs are offered in respective collections, organized for each.

Locas Vol. 1Jamie Hernandez' Locas

One of the most humane, graceful and imaginatively inexhaustible artists in American popular culture, Jaime Hernandez has created in Locas one of the great American novels of the last 25 years, graphic or otherwise. Maggie's story begins in the early-1980s Southern California rock scene, when it was shifting from the excesses of glitter rock to the gritty basics of punk and new wave. She quickly befriends Hopey Glass, a feisty anti-authoritarian punkette who quickly becomes Maggie's on-again, off-again lover and a constant presence in her life throughout the book.
