This week on the Sindiecate:
Los Bros Hernandez—Jaime, Gilbert, and Mario—changed my life in the late 1980s. Their work in Love & Rockets showed me how the aesthetics of the kids’ comics I had grown up on (Archie, Harvey Comics, etc.) could be used to tell sophisticated, adult stories.
The original, self-published issue of Love & Rockets #1 was first sold by mail-order and at San Diego Comicon in 1982, thirty years ago. This week Los Bros are special guests at Comic-Con, and a panel celebrating their work will be held on Saturday!
1:30-3:00 30th Anniversary of Love and Rockets— For 30 years Los Bros Hernandez have entranced comics readers around the world with their adventures of Maggie, Hopey, Luba, and the entire Love and Rockets cast of characters. Comic-Con special guests Gilbert Hernandez, Jaime Hernandez, and Mario Hernandez join with Fantagraphics Books co-publisher Gary Groth to talk about this award-winning series of comics and its decades-spanning durability.
