“I don’t really understand why the material of Love and Rockets isn’t widely regarded as one of the finest pieces of fiction of the last 35 years. Because it is.” — Neil Gaiman
“Maggie the Mechanic” reprints one of the best publishing projects of the Eighties, Love and Rockets. This is the first volume in a smaller, bargain-priced set of volumes and is the perfect vehicle for that material.
This volume collects writer/artist Jaime Hernandez’s adventures of the spunky Maggie, her annoying best friend and sometimes lover Hopey, and their circle of friends, including their bombshell friend Penny Century, Maggie’s weirdo mentor Izzy, wrestler Rena Titañon, and Maggie’s handsome love interest, Rand Race.
”Maggie the Mechanic” collects the earliest, punkiest, most heavily sci-fi stories of Maggie and her friends, and you can see Hernandez (who drew like an angel from the very first panel) refine his craft and approach: Despite strong shifts in tone, the stunning art and razor sharp characterizations keep this collection consistent and enthralling throughout.
We highly recommend all “Love and Rockets” graphic novels.
