Love and Rockets Month Begins!

Love and Rockets #1 was published on September, 1982. This landmark issue featured work from the Hernandez brothers, Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario, and the series has become one of the paragons of independent comics publishing. It features a variety of stories, from science fiction and superheroes to surreal and horror stories, but mostly it focuses on people's lives and relationships. These people come from small towns, like Gilbert's fictional Palomar, or urban places, such as Jaime's Hoppers, a fictional version of their hometown Oxnard, California.

To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of this landmark series, this month I will be reviewing the first fifteen trade paperbacks that reprint the entire first series #1-50.

Check in tomorrow for the first installment!
