This second omnibus volume of "Locas" tales by Jaime Hernandez - collecting over a dozen years' worth of stories from the award-winning Love and Rockets comics - picks up shortly after Maggie and Hopey's long-awaited reunion at the end of the Locas hardcover. Even though her love life remains chaotic, Hopey takes her first steps toward responsible adulthood with a real job, while divorced Maggie manages a fleabag apartment building, where she continues to wrestle with the demons of her past - especially in the stunning graphic novel-length "Ghost of Hoppers" with its hallucinatory dream finale. Ray, still in love with Maggie, hangs out with the bombshell "Frogmouth," whose ties to local thugs causes trouble. Of course, Maggie, Hopey and Ray's paths continue to intersect in Jaime's increasingly complex, always richly imagined world, along with those of characters both old (Izzy Ortiz, Penny Century) and new (the jockette Angel, the mysterious superheroine Alarma).

About the Author:

Jaime Hernandez is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning cartoonist and a lifelong Los Angelean.

Review:

“Starred Review. The underlying theme of aging and acceptance is somehow ironic, considering that Hernandez’s artwork is even more stylishly elegant, his storytelling more powerfully confident, than when he was a young turk, and Love and Rockets was the coolest comic around. His cast of complex, appealing characters continues to delight and surprise after nearly three decades.”
- Gordon Flagg, Booklist

“It’s all classic Hernandez material, but this volume’s key element that really makes the book sing louder than ever is the amount of focus placed upon Ray Dominguez.... Some of the richest material Jaime has ever produced focuses on Ray’s pursuit of Vivian, a former stripper and wannabe actress that leaves nothing but pain and suffering in her wake.... There’s so much good stuff in Locas II, though, that I could talk about it until my fingers bleed.... Locas stands alone. I highly recommend you read it and see why.”
- Marc Mason, Comics Waiting Room

“This beautifully put together hardcover collects the second volume of Xamie’s ‘Locas’ tales from Love & Rockets. These tales of the lives of Maggie, Hopey, and Ray, are some of the most enthralling, and sometimes bizarre, stories ever told in the comic medium.”
- Edward Kaye, Hypergeek

“Somehow, some way, Jamie Hernandez is getting better and better. ... In Locas II: Maggie, Hopey and Ray, he’s crafted perhaps his most universal work to date, a saga of three people who’ve left behind the postures of their youth to stumble, unsure and hesitant, across the landscape of their adult lives. It’s strange and scary, funny and sweet, confused and enlightening. Locas II is a master as the top of his game, and a true comic book classic.”
- Michael C. Lorah, Newsarama
