Amor y cohetes


Amor y Cohetes (Love & Rockets)
Los Bros Hernandez
2008, Fantagraphics Books
283 pages, illustrated

THIS collection of one-shot stories and short series departs from the normal format of the Love and Rockets books, bringing together innovative graphic excursions that will be new to many readers familiar with the work of Jaime, Gilbert and Mario Hernandez from Oxnard, California. We can discover the shapely planet-hopper Rocky and her robot Fumble, a striking graphic biography of Frida Kahlo, the dystopian tales of Errata Stigmata and indescribable storyboards such as Music for Monsters. It is an original and surprising departure by veteran cartoonists steeped in Latino culture and well worth leaving the Locas and Palomar to one side for. – EC
