I love you, Ray Dominguez. ( )

Ahhh I have found my new favorite comic book series! I really love how Jamie Hernandez portrays his wacky, smart, and sexy characters in these stories. I appreciate any author who can make such great story lines with such strong female characters. I can't wait to read the rest of the love and rockets comic books! ( )

Reading L&R always makes me want to prance around in my underwear, because all of the hot girls do that. This newest collection was aces, especially in the Hopey arena - always my favorite gal. I got a little choked up seeing Hopey as a teacher (assistant!) - known these ladies so long and so well that they feel more real to me than any literary character. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

It starts with a barely-glimpsed slaying ("Life Through Whispers") and ends with a funeral ("Male Torso Found in L.A. River"). Even though (or perhaps because) he's still carrying the torch for Maggie, Ray diligently pursues the dangerous and annoying "Frogmouth," an aspiring actress and full-time train wreck, from seedy bars and back alleys through comic book conventions...all the way to the ultimate, and unexpected, consummation. Meanwhile, Hopey spends an eventful week during which she undergoes a couple of major life changes, both personal and professional...and for that matter cosmetic. New characters include Hopey's long-suffering on-the-side squeeze Grace, Maggie's new roommate, the sweet-natured jockette "Angel of Tarzana", and the live-wire would-be gangsta Elmerwhile such classic Love and Rockets characters as the hard-living Doyle, the ageing but still-rocking Terry, and the mysterious super-heroine Alarma pop up in the margins...As does Maggie, well off stage but visible as Ray's resentful ex, Angel's roommate, and (forever and still) Hopey's best friend.… (more)
