How to Read Love and Rockets


The Hernandez brothers’ decades-spanning œuvre can seem overwhelming to new readers, but it’s actually much easier than you might think, and we’ve put this handy guide together to prove it. We envy the pleasures that await you.


THE COLLECTED LOVE AND ROCKETS

First, start with with the COLLECTED LOVE AND ROCKETS trade paperback series, which collects all of Jaime and Gilbert’s L&R work in solo, chronological editions (plus one catch-all edition of odds and ends) beginning with the original Love and Rockets Vol. I, #1 from 1982.

LOVE AND ROCKETS: NEW STORIES
