Love and Rockets, Vol. 9: Flies on the Ceiling (Used Book) - Los Bros Hernandez
In 1982, readers of the first issue of Love and Rockets wondered why Isabel Ruebens was having so much trouble with her writing. Now, ten years later, Jaime Hernandez finally offers the answer in "Flies on the Ceiling", one of the most chilling installments in the series. His other stories in this volume include, "Spring 1982" (a look at the checkered past of Ray's friend Doyle), the playful "Li'l Ray," and the long-awaited reunion of Maggie and Hopey (and even Penny Century).
Gilbert Hernandez is represented with only two major stories, but both are powerful and inventive: "A Folk Tale" is a re-telling of a classic fable in modern dress, while "Frida" employs breathtaking range of comicbook and illustration techniques to chronicle the tragic life of the surrealist painter Frida Kahlo.
