Love and Rockets Locas TP Vol 02 Girl From Hoppers

Product Number: 9781560978510


Writer: Jaime Hernandez

Artist: Jaime Hernandez

Publisher: Fantagraphics Books

"Love and Rockets" is being released in its most accessible form yet -- a series of compact, thick, affordable, mass-market volumes that present the whole story in perfect chronological order. After the sci-fi trappings of his earliest stories, Hernandez refined his approach, settling on the more naturalistic environment of the fictional Los Angeles barrio, Hoppers, and the lives of the young Mexican-Americans and punk rockers who live there. A central story and one of Jaime's absolute peaks is "The Death of Speedy." Such is Jaime's mastery that even though the end of the story is telegraphed from the very title, the downhill spiral of Speedy, the local heartthrob, is utterly compelling and ultimately quite surprising. Also in this volume, Maggie begins her on-again off-again romance with Ray D., leading to friction and an eventual separation from Hopey.
