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.

Reviews

It's an exquisite story. With the characters locked in a tussle of greed and deceit, Hernandez makes his writing craft look effortless. The script is low-key and natural, the characters three-dimensional and interesting.
Each [panel] almost vibrates with the frenetic, desperate energy of the characters... That energy explodes in the final pages, as the story comes to a dramatic but ambiguous conclusion. In the end, the work offers an homage to B-movies while standing out as a graphic novel.
[A] noirish tale of crosses double and triple, in which the same small cast keeps tripping over each other, making and breaking promises and plans and alliances. ... the plot is suitably twisty and energetic.--Andrew Wheeler
The outlandish plot piles double-crosses upon double-crosses, leading up to an over-the-top, apocalyptic denouement. It's pulpy fun that, appropriately, has the dashed-off, anything-goes spirit of a straight-to-video caper flick.--Gordon Flagg
[A] sweet little book in which a bunch of grifters try to trick each other out of money. It seems to be about love and trust and whether anybody is dependable or if they're all trying to survive. It's pretty great.--Nick Gazin
[The] Troublemakers... features amazing cartooning. ...[T]he storytelling relies on Hernandez's masterful use of staging and talent with composition. His ability to spot blacks, place textures, and overall cartooning/drawing skills made this crime story a delight to read.--Jim Rugg
