The original, seminal Love & Rockets comic book series, which ran for 50 issues from 1981 to 1996, singlehandedly defined the post-underground generation of comics that spawned Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and so many others. Now collected into 15 volumes, Love & Rockets is a body of work that The Nation has described as "one of the hidden treasures of our impoverished culture." Created by brothers Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez, three Southern California Mexican-Americans armed with a passion for pop culture and punk rock, Love & Rockets gave a voice to minorities and women for the first time in the medium's then 50-year history and remains one of the greatest achievements in comic book history.

Usually, I prefer Locas stories over Palomar, but this may be my favorite story arc I've read thus far in the series. Read full review

User Review  - Bill - Goodreads

Beto's best work. Demoted 1 star because I felt the story worked better before he added pages to the graphic novel. I'll have to stay on the lookout for 'Human Diastrophism', which contains the original title and the story as presented in the comics. Read full review
