About the Author

Jaime Hernandez is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning (Will Eisner Hall of Famer; Harvey, Ignatz, and PEN Award-winner; L.A. Times Book Prize) cartoonist and a lifelong Los Angelean.


While longtime fans will discover extra levels of joy and regret in this installment, even those who pick this up as their introduction to the series will be moved by its tale of growing older without necessarily growing up.
A moving story about the lives of two longtime friends.
A poignant reintroduction to two beloved characters and their long-standing relationship.
This book is full of innocence and experience, punk haircuts, middle-aged moshing, old movies, cigarettes and bruised hearts, all sketched out in black and white pen lines that throb with emotion and desire and anger and pain and resignation and acceptance.
Love and Rockets [is] the rare pop cultural artifact that renders Latinas not as archetypes, but as rich and profound human beings full of messy contradiction and ambivalence.
Love and Rockets has created a community of misfits filled with as much anger as warmth, with as many mistakes as wisdom, and with as much sadness as joy. That full spectrum is embodied most beautifully in [protagonists] Maggie and Hopey, and Is This How You See Me? reinforces it perfectly.
This is an aching graphic novel about regret and growing older, and the ability -- or inability -- to confront the past.
