“An addictive soap opera, replete with humor and heart.” – The Washington Post

This is Gilbert Hernandez’s 
Palomar Book #4: Luba and Her Family, part of the Love & Rockets library.

Gilbert’s characters bid “Farewell, My Palomar” as they exit the Eden of the Central American town. Locals have begun to drift up to the United States to seek their fortunes, but when an earthquake levels Palomar, ever-resourceful Luba and her clan are on the move once again. In the U.S. the lives of Maria’s daughters – mayor and matriarch Luba, body-builder Petra, and therapist/film star Fritz – and their families become more and more intertwined.

Mischievous children’s show hostess Doralís MCs many (but not all) of the sisters’ romances, and exploits are detailed in missives from comics-loving Venus to her fierce, one-armed cousin Casimira.

Read all of Gilbert Hernandez’s acclaimed
Palomar stories from Love and Rockets on SEQUENTIAL in the right order. First read Palomar #1 to #4, then Maria M. and The Children of Palomar. After that, try out Gilbert’s Julio’s Day and get the collection of short stories by Gilbert and Jaime: Amor Y Cohetes.

“… The best comics series of all time.” –
The Comics Reporter

“I’ve never seen anything else in comics — I guess there might be something in literature — but in comics there’s never been anybody that’s touched what the Hernandez brothers have.” – Robert Crumb

“At first I was afraid that Beto was introducing so many characters I wouldn’t be able to keep up with them, but the deeper I go into the book the better he manages everyone. The writing reminds me of Will Eisner’s slice-of-life stuff from his later career…”

“This indie comics mainstay has been going for nearly 30 years, making Love and Rockets as intimidating to some new readers as even the densest superhero mythologies. Luckily, Fantagraphics has made the Los Bros Hernandez saga about a massive cast of startlingly lifelike characters digestible in the form of affordable reprint volumes published in chronological order.”

“In Gilbert's Palomar stories, there's a rawness that dominates the proceedings: raw anger, raw sexuality, raw passion for life, death and art.” – Rob Clough
