Love & Rockets Vol. 19: Luba in America SC

LOVE & ROCKETS VOL 19 LUBA IN AMERICA SC - Gilbert Hernandez Luba in America, Gilbert Hernandez's first collection since the relaunch of L&R, spotlights the artist's most beloved character, Luba, the central figure of Palomar, the south of the border town that Gilbert documented for 15 years in the original Love & Rockets (1981-1996). In this collection, Luba has moved to America, starting an entirely fresh new chapter in her life. The book begins with Luba traveling to the big city, supposedly having left Palomar to pave the way for her husband to join her in America. We quickly discover, however, that she has a more dire mission. Luba fears that her political history has left a threat to her family from the old country, and she believes that the only way to end this threat lies in America. The resulting action is an awesome blend of political intrigue, sexuality, and Gilbert's characteristically human portrayal of his characters, most notably his women. SC, 8x11, 224pg, b&w
