Assassinistas SC
(IDW Publishing)

First there were three: Octavia, Charlotte, and Rosalyn, a trio of badass hit-women who picked up the slack when the going got too real for other so-called top-level assassins. But things happened. Octavia hung up her semi-automatic for a semi-lucrative kidnapping insurance scam. Charlotte chose expensive Chardonnay, love, marriage and, until recently, a baby carriage. And Rosalyn? There's a lot of conspiracies, but according to the federal government, she's simply M.I.A. When a kidnapping hits too close to home, Octavia is forced out of retirement and back into the bounty-hunting business. Down two partners, she recruits her son Dominic and his boyfriend Taylor to aid and abet her in a semester of murder-based work study, where she'll teach them everything she knows (if she can get them to put down the video games, stop making out, and actually focus on the mission already).

Image: Children of Palomar & Other Tales - A Love and Rockets Book SC  - Fantagraphics Books

This comics omnibus includes the graphic novels Julio's Day and The Children of Palomar, as well as never-before-collected work by brothers Mario and Gilbert Hernandez, some of which has never been available since its early 2000s run in comic book single issues. Children of Palomar and Other Tales(the fifteenth volume in our Complete Love and Rockets Library omnibuses and the eighth Gilbert volume) begins with "Me for the Unknown," uncollected since its original 20012004 run in Love and Rockets Vol. II comic books. Written by Mario Hernandez and drawn by Gilbert Hernandez, it traces the Rabelaisian journey of Tagg Lillard. A U.S. citizen with a seemingly perfect life working in Latin America, he escapes a death trap clutching important papers, and an imperious CEO and his manservant pursue him through a land plagued by colonialist/corporate greed. Also collected: one of their joints from 2008, "Chiro el Indio." In The Children of Palomar suite of short stories (20062007, collected in 2013), there are many mysterious visitors, an apparition that haunts childless women, and readers learn how Chelo lost her eye. And in Julio's Day, which originally ran from 20012008 and was collected in 2013, a man's life-threaded with war, loss, illness, and forbidden love-spans a century. Children of Palomar and Other Tales: A Love and Rockets Book is part of the Love and Rockets series.

Julio's Day HC
(Fantagraphics Books)

Originally serialized in Love and Rockets Vol. II but never completed until now, Julio's Day is Gilbert Hernandez's latest graphic novel, a masterpiece of elliptical, emotional storytelling that traces one life through a series of enthralling vignettes. While Julio's Day has some elements in common with Hernandez's Palomar cycle, this is very much a standalone story that will help cement his position as one of the strongest and most original cartoonists of our time.

An all-ages story, Marble Season explores the redemptive and timeless power of reading and role play in childhood. [(W/A/CA) Gilbert Hernandez]
