Strange Brouhaha

Here's another link, this time to an interview with the incredibly talented Jaime Hernandez, talking about Love and Rockets and the release of the new book "Locas," which collects all the Maggie and Hopey stories from L&R.

Beto and Jaime Hernandez are easily--EASILY!--comics' best storytellers. Period. Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Craig Thompson, Alex Robinson, they're all good, don't get me wrong. Beto and Jaime are better. Gilbert got his turn last year with the "Palomar" collection, which was incredible.

If you're at all interested in any kind of visual medium, and you're not familiar with Los Bros. Hernandez' work, you seriously owe it to yourself to go to the bookstore or library and look at every single L&R collection they have. It's that good. Jaime is hell on wheels with a pen. He's better than Frank Cho, and Frank Cho is a frickin' genius.
