This is Love and Rockets: New Stories #8, 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

In this eighth annual volume of
New Stories, Jaime takes us to the punk reunion that Maggie & Hopey were road tripping to last issue. Will Hopey actually show up, or will Maggie have to go it alone? Hell, will anybody show up?

Lots of old friends and enemies make appearances in the second chapter of this latest
Locas epic. Also, what happened to Princess Animus? The film may have broke but the movie was most definitely not over. All this and Tonta, too! Meanwhile, Gilbert serves up the second and concluding part of “The Magic Voyage of Aladdin,” which establishes the rivalry of its two stars, Fritz and Mila. Who’s Mila, you ask? And to make matters worse, who are the Fritz look-alikes that are coming out of the woodwork? You’ll have to read Love and Rockets: New Stories No. 8 to find out!

REVIEWS

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."
