After Jaime's two-part super-hero epic from Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 and #2, we return to the enthralling minutiae of the 'Locas' cast's lives for the first time in three years.
In the main story Ray finally gets his date with Maggie: The couple goes to an art opening and to dinner, they discuss the crazy world of dreams, and Maggie asks Ray for a huge favor.
Also in this volume, 'Brown Town, Blue Sun,' a new installment in Jaime's beloved 'little kids' flashback series: A ten-year-old Maggie and her family move away from Hoppers to a desert ghost town...
And on the Gilbert side of the ledger, 'Scarlet by Starlight' is a story starring Fritz (of High Soft Lisp fame) that (in contrast to #2's silent masterpiece 'Hypnotwist') consists entirely of a 14-page dialogue scene.
'Killer/Sad Girl/Star' picks up the 'Sad Girl' character from LRNS #2, and how no one in her family takes her budding film career seriously.
