Luba and Her Family: A Love and Rockets Book by Jamie Hernandez

Fantagraphics Books

Regular price $ 19.99

In the tenth volume of The Complete Love and Rockets Library, and the fourth collecting writer-artist Gilbert Hernandez's Palomar main storyline, his sprawling family saga moves to the United States, where newly immigrated Luba and her sisters, body-builder Petra and therapist/film star Fritz, find their families' and friends' lives becoming more and more intertwined. As the three sisters have "memories of sweet youth," the next generation finds the spotlight: Luba's adult daughter, Doralís, emcees the proceedings in her role as mischievous host of a children's TV show, while Petra's little girl, Venus, has adventures with her aunt Fritz and her best friend Yoshio. At her mother's urging, Venus also writes missives to her fierce, one-armed cousin Casimira, who's back in Palomar. In these stories from 1997–2001 — never before collected together — Venus tells it like it is!
