Whoa Nellie! represents Jaime Hernandez at his most whimsically adventurous, an all-ages Mexican wrestling romp and celebration of the popular culture of his youth. A wonderful, self-contained graphic novel, the book focuses on the female championship tag team of Xochitl and Gina, as they defend their title against younger, more marketable stars who want to impose an early retirement. Featuring some of the most fantastically drawn action sequences ever seen in comics or the sport of pro wrestling, yet never betraying Hernandez's elegant pacing and figure drawing.
