“A welcome addition to Gilbert Hernandez's oeuvre, in that the entire volume focuses on one of the notable characters within the younger generation of the Palomar universe, and in this sense, the book is a long time in coming.” – Derek Parker Royal, University of Florida

A rare foray into all-ages work,
The Adventures of Venus was Gilbert Hernandez's contribution to the kids' anthology Measles which he edited in 1999 and 2000. This volume collects all the previously uncollected "Venus" stories from Measles in which Luba's niece creates and collects comic books, walks through a scary forest, plays soccer, schemes to get the cute boy she likes, laments the snowlessness of a California Christmas, catches measles, and travels to a distant planet (OK, the last one may be a dream). Plus a new story done just for this book!
