All-new stories featuring Jaime’s Maggie and Ray, plus Gilbert’s Fritz and the “Sad Girl.”

After Jaime’s two-part super-hero epic from Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 and #2, we return to the enthralling minutiae of the “Locas” cast’s lives for the first time in three years. In the main story Ray finally gets his date with Maggie: The couple goes to an art opening and to dinner, they discuss the crazy world of dreams, and Maggie asks Ray for a huge favor. Also in this volume, “Brown Town, Blue Sun,” a new installment in Jaime’s beloved “little kids” flashback series: A ten-year-old Maggie and her family move away from Hoppers to a desert ghost town…

And on the Gilbert side of the ledger, “Scarlet by Starlight” is a story starring Fritz (of High Soft Lisp fame) that (in contrast to #2’s silent masterpiece “Hypnotwist”) consists entirely of a 14-page dialogue scene. “Killer/Sad Girl/Star” picks up the “Sad Girl” character from LRNS #2, and how no one in her family takes her budding film career seriously.

Los Hermanos Hernandez have pulled me in, again. Gilbert explores newish territory, while Jaime plumbs deep into the well of Maggie's past--so real it feels more like he is revealing past history than creating it.

I found out about "Love and Rockets: New Stories #3" from a blog that I've now lost track of that described it as a surprisingly good, standalone short story collection from the Hernandez brothers. The book is in fact a series of five short stories, which cleverly weave in and out of one another to create two longer stories.Not a regular reader of works by the Hernandez brothers, it's hard for me to judge this work against their others, but I can say it was good. Solid, clean graphic storytelling, with a storyline that does push boundaries in different directions, all brought artfully at the end.
