LOVE & ROCKETS!
That new first issue–from an admittedly biased fan of Los Bros Hernandez–was fantastic! This is actually a return to form(at) for L&R, as the first 50 issues were a magazine format, which explains, I think, why I was never able to find issues at my local comic shop, back in the day. I was aware of the series, because Alan Moore was a fan, and would peruse my LCS, which was a good one (sadly gone now) and doubtless carried the book, for copies but never found it. But I do know there were some shelves with oversized books on them, like the Will Eisner graphic novels, that I rarely looked through. I’ve thought, many times, that they must have been there, and I could have been reading this series long before I finally got the first, huge omnibus edition from Fantagraphics.
(of course, I’ve also considered I could have just asked for it, but, for some reason, I never did).
Thanks again for the show, Peter.
Chris! Now that you mention it, I can remember seeing Love & Rockets in the “adult” section at one of the comicshops I frequented as a kid called Hildebrand’s. It wasn’t my local shop – it was deeper in the city than where I lived – but I would stop there every now and then for missing issues, sales, etc. during the 80s. So I def understand your history with L&R.
