About the Author

Gilbert Hernandez was born in 1957 in Oxnard, California, and is considered one of the greatest living comics writer-artists in the world. In 1982, Hernandez co-created, along with his brothers Mario and Jaime, the ongoing, iconic, internationally acclaimed comic book series Love and Rockets, one of the greatest bodies of work the medium has ever seen. In addition to his work on Love and Rockets, its spinoffs, and side series, Hernandez has released a prodigious amount of original graphic novels and miniseries, such as Sloth, Bumperhead, and Marble Season. He also collaborated with Darwyn Cooke on The Twilight Children for DC. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2017 and is the recipient of a Fellow Award from United States Artists and a PEN Center USA's Graphic Literature Award for Outstanding Body of Work. Hernandez lives in Ventura, CA, with his wife and daughter.

Reviews

"Love & Rockets has been American fiction's best-kept secret."
..."Love & Rockets is a high point in the comics form, conventional in idiom, but not comparable to any strips before it."
"If you've never heard of Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, you've been missing out on two of the hidden treasures of our impoverished culture."
"I've never seen anything else in comics - I guess there might be something in literature - but in comics there's never been anybody that's touched what the Hernandez brothers have." -- Tom Spurgeon
