“Anything from any or all of the Hernandez Brothers is cause for celebration, and Citizen Rex gives us a pop of indie gold from Mario and Gilbert Hernandez!” – Michael Allred

A bizarre, sexy look into the future from comics legends Mario and Gilbert Hernandez!

When gossip blogger Sergio Bauntin investigates the illusive robot celebrity CTZ-RX-1, he provokes the city's shady power players, who don't want the story to get out! It's a surreal sci-fi adventure as only Los Bros. Hernandez can do it!

This edition features cover art by Gilbert, an extensive sketchbook section with behind-the-scenes material from Mario, and a special pinup from third Hernandez brother Jaime (
Locas, The Education of Hopey Glass)!

REVIEWS

Comic Book Resources

•Comics website

“If the Hernandez Brothers never created another thing beyond “Love and Rockets” they’d still be considered independent comic book royalty for years and years to come … And yet two-thirds of the creative genius behind the Kirby, Harvey and Inkpot award-winning series are at it again!”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“It’s a dense, engrossing, and above all humanistic approach to the genre, and not a bad way to calibrate one’s behavior in the real world as well, and it makes for Mario’s finest work to date.”

Under the Radar

•Online magazine

“Gilbert Hernandez's highly stylized illustrations move the entire comic into a more cartoonish landscape, keeping the otherwise incredulous story somewhat feasible.”
