by Jaime Hernandez
One of the most humane, graceful and imaginatively inexhaustible artists in American popular culture, Jaime Hernandez has created in Locas one of the great American novels of the last 25 years, graphic or otherwise. Maggie's story begins in the early-1980s Southern California rock scene, when it was shifting from the excesses of glitter rock to the gritty basics of punk and new wave. She quickly befriends Hopey Glass, a feisty anti-authoritarian punkette who quickly becomes Maggie's on-again, off-again lover and a constant presence in her life throughout the book. This book contains all the Maggie stories from the first Love & Rockets series.

I was entirely unfamiliar with this comic, and quite enjoyed it anyway. Wacky AND intelligent. Good artwork.
