Maggie the Mechanic: The Love & Rockets Library - Locas Book 1 - Comics by comiXologyThirty-eight years have gone by, and Los Bros Hernandez, as they are known principally Gilbert and Jaime , are now regarded as maestros of the comic book form. Some of the narratives they established in that first unlikely booklet are still going strong. It reunites Maggie and Hopey — now solidly in middle age — at a punk concert in fictional Hoppers a stand-in for Oxnard. Almost four decades on, Maggie remains an impetuous romantic with a penchant for infatuation. Hopey, the take-no-prisoners punk, has sacrificed adventure for predictability. All these years later, the tangled relationship between these women still crackles. I was happily surprised that some of them surprised me.

Love and Rockets is a series of comics that started in the s. It was written by three brothers: Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez, and the brothers each created their own storylines, tracing a set of characters over a period of time, even allowing their characters to age and develop and change appearance, a too-rare technique employed in the world of comics, where most characters are ageless and timeless. The first run on the series lasted fifty issues and ran from September to The Hoppers 13 stories, as they are sometimes called, focus on a set of chicano friends, but it centers on the lives of long-time friends Maggie and Hopey. Recently the stories of Palomar and Hoppers 13 , sometimes referred to as the Locas stories, have been published in separate volumes so that readers can follow either the Palomar characters OR the Locas characters. However, there are six, page volumes of New Stories out so far that once again place the stories of Palomar and Locas side-by-side.
