    This book is pushing my taste further in Jaime Hernandez s camp Unless he is writing and drawing science fiction, I just get impatient with Gilbert s take on soap operatics I read the first Love Rockets book in its entirety, but I am finding myself skipping through the Palomar stories to get to the Maggie and Hopey bits Jaime s style is justappealing, and although Gilbert draws some great wrestling women, Jaime s girls are just hotter In my busy, nerd ass theatre school schedule, I can This book is pushing my taste further in Jaime Hernandez s camp Unless he is writing and drawing science fiction, I just get impatient with Gilbert s take on soap operatics I read the first LoveRockets book in its entirety, but I am finding myself skipping through the Palomar stories to get to the Maggie and Hopey bits Jaime s style is justappealing, and although Gilbert draws some great wrestling women, Jaime s girls are just hotter In my busy, nerd ass theatre school schedule, I can t waste time on boring comics I will writeintelligently about this later

    This seems to be where the Hernandez brothers really hit their stride Complex characters, stories that range all over the map, but havecohesion than the first volume Nice artwork.

    As long as I ve been reading Los Bros Hernandez, I ve preferred Jaime as an artist but Gilbert as a storyteller This volume already cements that opinion for me Though the book s titled Chelo s Burden and Goodreads has the authour listed as Jaime, rather than Beto , there are two major story arcs and a few minor self contained stories as well as one from Mario that s a little of both herein.Heartbreak Soup is a lovely, poignant, bittersweet story from Beto, and this book adds a few new page As long as I ve been reading Los Bros Hernandez, I ve preferred Jaime as an artist but Gilbert as a storyteller This volume already cements that opinion for me Though the book s titled Chelo s Burden and Goodreads has the authour listed as Jaime, rather than Beto , there are two major story arcs and a few minor self contained stories as well as one from Mario that s a little of both herein.Heartbreak Soup is a lovely, poignant, bittersweet story from Beto, and this book adds a few new pages to the original magazine version of the tale to introduce us to some of the denizens of his Palomar centered world Some of these characters like Luba become the stuff of legend through the course of his long running sagaand some don t make it to the end of this tale Superb storying, and only the first glimpse of what he s capable of.100 Rooms from Jaime, meanwhile, is considerably lighter fare, but a wonderful showcase for his effortless looking, cartoony but believable artwork It s a nice way to see Maggie, Hopey, Penny Izzy mostly at play, rather than in constant strife over whatever, but doesn t feel like anything you couldn t read the rest of their lives without.The other stories range from sci fi lite from both Jaime Beto, to an excellent peek into the past of Rena Titanon, the story of how Maggie got to be a superhero just once and another chapter of Mario s odd Somewhere in California saga.This was an absolutely entertaining book in the series, and the start of Los Bros hitting their stride

    The second volume of Love and Rockets picks up speed with Gilbert s excellent Heartbreak Soup which really starts the Palomar stories I had forgotten how strong the storytelling was in these early stories He captures the speech and manner of young boys so well Really tremendous.Jaime s stories are little bit of a letdown 100 Rooms is entertaining but shallow as the girls wander around H.R Costigan s palatial estate Maggie is foolish in a way that isn t cute but does accurately portray the The second volume of Love and Rockets picks up speed with Gilbert s excellent Heartbreak Soup which really starts the Palomar stories I had forgotten how strong the storytelling was in these early stories He captures the speech and manner of young boys so well Really tremendous.Jaime s stories are little bit of a letdown 100 Rooms is entertaining but shallow as the girls wander around H.R Costigan s palatial estate Maggie is foolish in a way that isn t cute but does accurately portray the folly of a 19 year old girl.There is another less than stellar Mario story as well It is hard to keep up when both of your brothers are creative geniuses.I had forgotten the cheesecake factor in the series The Bros love drawing their girls in various states of undress They get away with it by writing theses women so well

    I ve been getting these books from the library and so I ve read some of them out of order This is the second book in the series of graphic novels compiled from Love and Rockets.I don t know what else to say other than I really love the Hernandez brother There art work is clean and well done Their stories are compelling, when not humorous and insightful.


  7. Dan Wilson Dan Wilson says:

    There is a lot of potential here, and I look forward to getting deeper into these to see how the storytelling comes together Like Vol 1, this is an eclectic collection The art is great, and the writing is starting to catch up.

    Luba for president


  9. Steven Steven says:

    This collection contains Heartbreak Soup, the first story in Gilbert s long Central American Palomar epic.

    Gilbert s first and best Palomar story It s because of this one that I ll buy everything crazy he does nowadays.
