This is Love and Rockets: New Stories #7, part of the Love and Rockets library.

“Love and Rockets continues to be a vital and important ongoing document of two creators at the absolute height of their powers.” – Jeffrey O. Gustafson,
Comics Pusher

The seventh annual volume of
Love and Rockets: New Stories, the most important and enduring alternative comics series in the history of the medium, finds Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez writing and drawing at the top of their game.

In Jaime's stories, Maggie and Hopey take a road trip and much-needed break from their humdrum domestic lives and travel to visit a "sick friend". And, when the cat's away, Ray visits some old sick friends of his own. Plus Tonta's nutty family!

Gilbert offers a veritable suite of stories, including "The Magic Voyage of Aladdin," a sweeping epic of derring-do in which Morgan Le Fey (Fritz) teams up with Aladdin to stop the evil Circle from obtaining the magic lamp; "The Golem Suit," a WWII sci-fi thriller starring "Killer"; and "Daughters and Mothers and Daughters," in which flashbacks to Luba's mother Maria reveal how ugly secrets of the past affect their family today.

Booklist

•Literary review magazine

"… Every bit as satisfying as the peak years of the long-running series.... A quarter-century after Love and Rockets first rocked the alt-comics world, both brothers remarkably remain at the top of their game." — Gordon Flagg

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

"In the 30 years they’ve been writing and drawing Love and Rockets, Los Bros Hernandez have created wonderfully complex story lines and characters... This web of superior magical-realistic storytelling involves readers in the perplexed yearnings of a huge cast of unforgettable characters unaware of their own capacity for general self-delusion and occasional self-discovery."

The AV Club

•Pop-culture website

“There are acclaimed filmmakers and novelists who can't do what Jaime Hernandez does — or Gilbert, for that matter. When the two of them are at their most inspired, as they are here, they make almost every other comics creator today look like a fumbling hack. [Grade] A."
