Overview

Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 reboots the ongoing "Love and Rockets" comic to a fat, all-new annual graphic novel-length package.
Jaime launches the new format with a superhero yarn: Penny Century has acquired superpowers, but is half-mad with grief and rampaging through the galaxy. A motley group of superheroes assemble to try to stop her. Only the first half of the saga, it combines Jaime's razor-sharp characterization and superlative art with wildly inventive, Kirby-style action. Gilbert Hernandez has these stories: "Tamanny" (rookie cop vs. demonic drug users); "Papa" (a turn-of-the-century story involving a traveling businessman); "The New Adventures of Duke and Sammy" (superpowered Martin and Lewis impostors in outer space); "The Tender Room" (Into the Wild as re-imagined by Beto); "Chiro el Indio" (written by third brother Mario Hernandez); and "Never Say Never" (a kangaroo gets lucky in Las Vegas).

Editorial Reviews

Nude
“There is growing support for the argument that Love & Rockets represents the greatest output of any cartoonist not named Charles Schulz.”
The Nation
“If you’ve never heard of Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, you’ve been missing out on two of the hidden treasures of our impoverished culture.”
Rolling Stone
“Love & Rockets has been American fiction's best-kept secret.”
The Washington Post
“A high point in the comics form, conventional in idiom, but not comparable to any strips before it.”
Douglas Wolk - Salon
“Hernandez is a national treasure.”
Corey Henson - Newsarama
“As painful as it is to wait a year for new Love and Rockets now that the Hernandez brothers have switched to an annual format, it’ll be worth the wait if each issue is going to be as good as this one [L&R: New Stories #1]. Jaime Hernandez created the best superhero story of 2008 for this issue, and it should be required reading for anyone who reads or creates comics.”
John Jakala - Sporadic Sequential
“Jaime's entry [in Love and Rockets: New Stories #1]... is like a huge riff on what might have happened if superhero comics started their evolutionary path by focusing on more female-centered concerns instead of testosterone-fueled fisticuffs... Gilbert's contributions are hard to describe, mainly because they are so surreal. They really have to be experienced and interpreted on your own.”
