Jaime Hernandez - Fantagraphics Studio Edition Signing | The Last Bookstore | Monday, 11. December 2017

Love and Rockets co-creator Jaime Hernandez will be at The Last Bookstore on December 11th to promote the release of his new Fantagraphics Studio Edition. He'll be joined by comics artist and editor Jordan Crane to discuss the breadth of work represented in this definitive, large-scale collection.

FANTAGRAPHICS STUDIO EDITION: JAIME HERNANDEZ collects almost 200 pages of raw, un-retouched original art from the first fifty issues of the Love and Rockets comic book. These include such classic and beloved stories as “The Death of Speedy,” “Chester Square,” and “Wigwam Bam.” This book traces the evolution of one of the form’s greatest long-form storytellers from his punk-poster beginnings to the synthesizing of his influences, to his current style; it will be indispensable for collectors, fans, and cartooning students.

Internationally acclaimed cartoonist Jaime Hernandez is one of the forefathers of the 1980s–’90s alternative comics and graphic novel movement. He is co-creator of the long-running, award-winning series Love and Rockets. Hernandez lives in Pasadena, CA with his wife and daughter.
