Over at Newsarama, Gilbert Hernandez talks about CHANCE IN HELL the first in a new series of graphic novels covering Fritzi’s lurid movie career. He also reveals he’s working on a mini series for Dark Horse.
The evolution of Chance in Hell came from the desire to show Fritz’s movies as stories in Love and Rockets, but as the stories developed, I saw that they would work better as their own books. Instead of serializing the stories over several issues (and years!), I prefer the reader get the goods in one place. I’ve spent too many years shortening long stories into a few pages, or serializing them in L&R so that the readers get lost after a few chapters.
