In 1981 three Mexican-American brothers self-published their first comic book, Love and Rockets, and “changed American cartooning forever” according to Publishers Weekly. More than twenty-five years later, it is still being published to critical and commercial success.
Jaime Hernandez’s moving stories chronicle the lives of some of the most memorable and fully formed characters the comics world has ever seen. His female protagonists, masterfully delineated with humor, candor, and breathtaking realism, come to life within California’s Latino culture and punk milieu.
In April 2006, Hernandez began serializing his work in the New York Times Magazine—all of which is collected in The Art of Jaime Hernandez in full color. One of the greatest artists to ever work in comics, Hernandez has opened his archives for the first time, revealing never-before-seen sketches, childhood drawings, and unpublished art from throughout his career, alongside his most famous Love and Rockets material.
