The Hernandez brothers bring the theme of Love and Rockets back to superheroes. Nice to see Rocky, if only for a little bit. ( )

It's getting almost tedious to heap praises on Los Bros Hernandez, but what can a comics fan do? Once again, Los Bros demonstrate why they are one of the best things going in this art form. As always, the mix of humor, style, and fully realized characters lifts the work of Los Bros considerably above the ordinary, and the fact that most of these pieces occur outside the orbit of their most familiar fictional locales (Hoppers and Palomar) simply demonstrates that twenty years into the game, these creators are no where close to running out of ideas or inspiration. The brothers are thoroughly steeped in the history and culture of their chosen art form, but that's just the icing on the cake - the current volume is simply further evidence that one of the most important contributions to the comics medium is the work of Los Bros Hernandez themselves.
