[Photo of several Fantagraphics Love and Rockets compendiums arranged in a row and photographed at an angle so that the spines of all the books are visible, along with the front cover of Maggie the Mechanic, which features several black and white illustrations of Maggie, a Mexican American woman with dark hair. The books pictured include Amor Y Cohetes, Beyond Palomar, Human Diatrophism, Heartbreak Soup, Perla La Loca, The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S., and Maggie the Mechanic.]

Gotta catch ‘em all.

I would really like to read these!

You should! I’ve been reading comics since I was a kid and Love and Rockets was a crucial discovery for me in my early teens. (Thankfully, I had a neighborhood comic shop stocked with back issues!) Though I’m partial to Jaime’s work, I think that Love and Rockets in general was absolutely critical to expanding American underground comics to include narratives of race and class. If you read and like Love and Rockets, you should definitely check out The Art of Jaime Hernandez: The Secrets of Life and Death, which provides some great insight into the way Jaime’s race and class informed his consumption and production of comics.
ETA: If you haven’t read Love and Rockets before, check out "How to Read Love and Rockets" on the Fantagraphics website.
