Esperanza: A Love and Rockets Book by Jaime Hernandez

Fantagraphics Books

Regular price $ 19.99

In the fifth batch of "Locas" stories by Jaime Hernandez, which originally ran from 2001–2007 in the pages of the Love and Rockets comic series, an older and wiser Maggie faces down the "Ghost of Hoppers" in a full-length graphic novel (which also introduces one of Jaime's greatest recent characters, Vivian the "Frogmouth," who creates chaos wherever she goes). Meanwhile, in "The Education of Hopey Glass," Hopey (her Spanish birth name giving this collection its title) career transitions from tending bar to teaching kindergarten (while still juggling a complex love life). The final quarter of the book shows Maggie's lovable ex, Ray Dominguez, being dragged into the aftermath of a grisly murder thanks to his affair with the "Frogmouth."
