Any of you get to go to MoCCA Fest this weekend? I didn't, but I got to meet the amazing Mr. Jaime Hernandez on Friday. I bought his book Locas II for him to sign, and I've been reading it all weekend. So good.
Love and Rockets is one of those comics I never get tired of reading. I would love it even if I couldn't read; I wish more comics were in black and white.
For those who don't know, Love and Rockets is a pretty down-to-earth drama, but occasionally there's weird, occult stuff, and superheros! Alarma is a real one, Penny Century wants to be one. Comic books themselves are a topic in the stories on occasion. Mild undress and swearing under the cut.
Space Queen is Maggie's favorite comic book. But it looks like some wacky artist has gotten a hold of her! I guess one of her new powers is the ability to shrink her waist.
To be fair, you did divorce him, Maggie!
L&R is so much fun, every story in Locas II is gold.
Do you guys and gals have comics like Space Queen that you always go back to? I usually go to Calvin and Hobbes, since I grew up reading it, but I also re-read a lot of manga: Appleseed, Akira, Azumanga, Crayon Shin-chan, etc.
