Synopsis

In 1982, brothers Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez created "Love & Rockets", an astonishing mixture of magical realism, science fiction, and meditations on the human condition which became one of the most critically acclaimed series of all time. Life goes on in the mythical Central American town of Palomar, with Luba, the town's larger-than-life mayor, providing a centrepiece to tales weaving in and out of the town's entire population, in a complex tapestry of Latin American life. Multi-award-winning writer and artist Gilbert Hernandez continues his densely plotted and deeply imagined tales, often compared with magic realist authors like Gabriel Garcia Marquez - a must for any fan of truly adult comics!
