We picked up a news nugget from Charles Kochman of Abrams at the Quills the other night: Abrams will be publishing THE ART OF JAIME HERNANDEZ, and it’s just what it sounds like. Is your mouth watering yet? If not there’s more: the book will reprint all of the LA MAGGIE LA LOCA strip that ran in the New York Times. Okay, stop, stop, we’re sold.
UPDATE: We forgot to mention that the book will be written by the estimable Todd Hignite and designed by the awesome Art Chantry. Deal was brokered by Kitchen, Lind & Assoc.
(BTW, the above panel, which we found by random Googling, is also, randomly, one of our all-time favorite comic book panels. ¡Viva las mujeres!)
