    "It’s an impressively thick tribute to L&R, featuring three lengthy interviews with the cartoonists, a complete list of characters in both Jaime’s Locas series and Gilbert’s Palomar saga, a timeline of the stories, an issue checklist and even a selection of highlights from the letter columns. In short, it’s the perfect scrapbook to some of the best comics ever made.” – Chris Mautner, Robot 6

The Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting)  edited by Marc Sobel & Kristy Valenti
368-page black & white/color 7.5” x 9.25” jacketed softcover • $29.99 ISBN: 978-1-60699-579-2
Now in Stock! See Previews / Order Now
The Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting) contains three incredibly in-depth and candid interviews with creators Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez: one conducted by writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline); one conducted some six years into the comic’s run by longtime L&R publisher Gary Groth; and one conducted by the book’s author, spanning Gilbert’s, Jaime’s and Mario’s careers, and looking to the future of the ongoing series, with a follow-up conversation with Groth. This book has foldout family trees for both Gilbert’s Palomar and Jaime’s Locas storylines; unpublished art; a character glossary (which is handy, considering that Gilbert alone has created 50+ characters!); highlights from the original series’ anarchic letters columns; timelines; and the most wide-ranging Hernandez Brothers bibliography ever compiled, including album and DVD covers, posters and more. The obsessive-yet-accessible detail and high production values make it a must-have for comics collectors, scholars, libraries and old and new fans alike: for those new to the series, it will make jumping in seem less daunting. For longtime fans, it clears up confusion that even those devoted to the groundbreaking alternative comic over its 30-year run can experience, given the sheer amount of material and sophisticated storytelling techniques (such as flashbacks, flash forwards, elliptical narrative and magical realism).

As a very nice and creative tribute to Kim Thompson, CBR has a gallery of re-imagined Amazing Heroes covers drawn by various artists based on reader suggestions. This one was drawn by Josh Gowdy from a suggestion by Stefan R., based on Jaime Hernandez’s illustration for issue #62.

Perfection.

We know you’ve really been wondering what the interior of Love and Rockets: The Covers looks like… how it’s laid out, what the recoloring looks like, what it includes. This PDF excerpt should answer your questions, particularly the Editor’s Note:

It’s a spectacular and dee-luxe production and we want to be sure we’re getting everything just right at the printer, so we’re taking a little extra time with it and it’s now scheduled for September release. At top is a sample of the clear overlay that wraps around the front cover.

Well, the Love and Rockets 30th anniversary books are missing the actual anniversary, but they are so worth the wait! The Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting)  is the ultimate guide to everything Palomar, Hoppers, and beyond, with 3 major interviews with the Hernandez brothers, character guides, unpublished artwork, timelines, a checklist, and even letter column highlights from the original series. Oh and by the way, the black title area on the cover is a removable sticker and the jacket folds out into a poster on one side and character family tree on the other! (We’ll be sure to demonstrate this in a future preview once we have printed advance copies… stay tuned.) We’ve put together a 32-page preview with smatterings of pages from the major sections, which you can read and/or download here.
