9781560975403: Dicks and Deedees (Love & Rockets)

Love And Rockets' Most Popular Characters In A New Hardcover Collection. Armed with a passion for pop culture and punk rock, Jaime Hernandez (along with his brothers, Gilbert and Mario) was one of the first comic book artists to give a voice to minorities and women in the medium's 70-year history. His character-driven stories primarily explore the life of a three-dimensional Mexican-American woman from a fictional barrio of Los Angeles, Maggie Chascarillo, one of the most complex and recognizable characters in the history of Mexican-American fiction. Hernandez is the co-creator of Love & Rockets, which along with Raw magazine defined the modern literary comics movement of the post-underground generation and celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. This first new Jaime Hernandez book since the splashy return of Love and Rockets in 2001 spotlights a wide-ranging and funky group of stories from L&R and Hernandez's comic Penny Century. The continuing trials and tribulations of Maggie and Hopey are featured in "Election Day, " "Everybody Loves Me, Baby" (featuring extensive flashbacks to their early punk days, a reader's favorite) and the surreal dream story "The Race." We also check up with Maggie's ex-boyfriend Ray D., who is the recipient of a series of increasingly rude surprises when his old buddy Doyle shows up, somewhat the worse for wear, in "The Frog Mouth." Plus "Bay of Threes, " which chronicles the romance of Penny Century and H.R. Costigan from (virtually) cradle to grave.

About the Author:

Jaime Hernandez lives in Pasadena, CA with his wife Meg and stepdaughter. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Love & Rockets this year, he was named a Guest of Honor at this summer's Comicon International in San Diego, the largest comics convention in the world.

From Booklist:

Hernandez has drawn his alternative-comics stories about a group of women in the Los Angeles barrio for more than two decades, yet he continues to be capable of revealing new aspects of his characters. Coming to terms with the past is the unstated theme of this collection, whose centerpiece, "The Race," is a dream story in which primary heroine Maggie rehashes her misgivings about her life. Elsewhere, Maggie's downbeat celebration of the end of her brief marriage is juxtaposed with a flashback to the couple's first encounters as punks in the early 1980s. Bringing out the backstory continues in a tale following bombshell Peggy Century from a childhood encounter with her future husband--the mysterious, horned millionaire H. R. Costigan--to his recent funeral. A too-brief story about Ray Dominguez, a former boyfriend of both Maggie and Penny who is fast becoming Hernandez's most sympathetic character, caps the volume. If the narrative gets more compelling and the characterizations grow richer with every passing year, Hernandez's elegantly simple drawing style remains his greatest strength. Gordon Flagg
