About the Author

Gilbert Hernandez is considered one of our greatest living cartoonists. He co-created the iconic series Love and Rockets, which has been ongoing since 1982, and authored numerous other comics and graphic novels, one of the greatest bodies of work the medium has ever seen. Raised in Oxnard, CA, Hernandez lives with his family in Las Vegas, NV.


Hernandez treads familiar turf to produce work of undeniable power.
Ultimately, ...despite the refreshing sexual frankness that Hernandez proceeds with, there is much sadness and heartbreak throughout. ...[O]ne wonders if the lingering bittersweetness at the end makes more sense in middle age, than it would in youth... Good stuff, of course.--Mark London Williams
This book is incredible... The world in this book is one I wouldn't want to live in but I can't stop thinking about the story of Fritz.--Nick Gazin
High Soft Lisp has its share of tender moments and tragic ones, although it's relatively buoyant with humor throughout. ... This is the stuff of soap operas, minus the melodrama. Lisp comes loaded with palpable emotions and heaps of honesty, even amid a cartoony backdrop.--Rod Lott
High Soft Lisp is brief, razor-sharp and ferocious, a black-hole-black Almodovaresque comedy about a self-destructive, sexually obsessive actress/psychiatrist and her ex-husband, an over-the-hill motivational speaker.--Douglas Wolk
