Hernandez''s understated dialogue and sparse, bold lines make every panel of his recent work sing and sting, and midway he drops the floor out from beneath his readers'' feet. The narrative strands of his characters'' histories converge, as the grand story he''s been drawing for 30 years glides to its conclusion the most heartbreaking ending possible that''s still, technically, a happy ending. --Douglas Wolk"
Jumping between time frames and narrators with masterful ease, Hernandez lets a lifetime's accumulated pain lurk troublingly beneath the surface, until it pierces through with sudden, devastating clarity. ...The Love Bunglers [is] one of the wondrous, aching triumphs of modern comics... --Sean Rogers"
Skillfully merging tragedy and serendipity, Hernandez brings [Maggie and Ray's] intertwining stories to a satisfying, if hard-won, culmination. The simplicity of Hernandez s page designs and the elegant economy of his drawing style belie the thoughtful sophistication of his storytelling, exemplified by a two-page spread that brilliantly encapsulates two entire lifetimes in just 18 panels. ...[A] heartbreakingly satisfying achievement that leaves the door wide open for further chapters in this most rewarding and accomplished of serialized comics. (Starred Review) --Gordon Flagg"
This is a new work by Love and Rockets' Jaime Hernandez. Really, that's probably all you need to know... [T]his new chapter... [is] a story told with warmth but also honesty. Time... has done nothing to [wear down] Hernandez's phenomenal storytelling skills. --Rob Bricken"
One theme of The Love Bunglers is what people don't talk about, to protect themselves or their loved ones, and the great unspoken things from the series, both secret and open, finally rise to the surface here, until -- in an extraordinary silent sequence -- we see the whole historical shape of an emotional truth that Hernandez's characters have never fully acknowledged before. --Douglas Wolk"
[Hernandez''s] writing is as funny and candid as ever. His drawing is -- always has been -- just a dream. It seamlessly combines conventional representation and cartoony exaggeration -- often in the same panel. But it''s the depth that you drown in, the sense that we are swimming in the deep waters of the heart here. --Teddy Jamieson"

[A]s irresistible as ever, peeling back the years to reveal a lifetime of powerful relationships, rejections, infidelities, and adventures.--Calvin Reid"
Jaime Hernandez keeps hitting home runs. It s almost like he doesn t know how to stop. You don t have to have ever read a Hernandez Bros. story before to appreciate the achievement, but for those who have, it s impossible to reach the end without shedding serious tears. It s that good, heartbreaking, and breathtaking in even measure. It s just about perfect, and you can put that on the book flap.--Tim O'Neil"
The Love Bunglers... is one of the most entertaining and honest stories about how we go about our lives, bungling up love. ... This is storytelling and character work done so well you ll wonder if they are in fact alive and possibly right next door. --David Brooke"
Featuring Hernandezâ€™s longtime Love and Rockets heroine Maggie, the suppression of family history is the initial thread that ties the The Love Bunglers together. Because these secrets canâ€™t be dealt with openly, their lingering effect is even more powerful. But Maggieâ€™s ability to navigate and find meaning in her life â€” despite losing her culture, her brother, her profession, and her friends â€” is whatâ€™s made her a compelling character. After a lifetime of losses, Maggie finds, in the second half, her longtime off and on lover, Ray Dominguez. In taking us through lives, deaths, and near-fatalities, The Love Bunglers encapsulates Maggieâ€™s emotional history as it moves from resignation to memories of loss, to sudden violence (a theme in this story) and eventually to love and contentment. Much like what John Updike created in his four Rabbit novels, Jaime Hernandez has been following his longtime character, Maggie, around for several decades, all of which has seemed to be building towards this book in particular.
