by Gilbert Hernandez
Luba: Three Daughters
is the final book in Gilbert Hernandez's post-Palomar trilogy, continuing the story of matriarch Luba and her extended family's travails in the United States after her Central American hometown is destroyed at the end of Palomar. It focuses on Luba and her two sisters, Fritz and Petra, exploring the complex relationships that form between family and how the experiences and actions of one generation influence the next. Renowned for his female characters, Hernandez intersperses his main narrative with "The Kid Stuff Kids," a series of lighthearted and playful one-pagers starring the young children of the three sisters, richly juxtaposed against the complex family drama at work in Three Daughters. Hernandez's mix of Latino soap opera, magic realist touches and rich naturalism speak to audiences about the changes that come with age and experience, and they are unparalleled in comics.

About the Author:

Gilbert Hernandez lives in Las Vegas, NV, with his wife and daughter. He is co-creator of the long-running, award-winning, and critically acclaimed series Love and Rockets.

Review:

"The rough-edged Latin American minimalist, stylized black and white comic strips of Gilbert Hernandez have been widely described as the graphic equivalent to the fabulism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel laureata."

As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts. "
