Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 reboots the ongoing "Love andRockets" comic to a fat, all-new annual graphic-novel length package that willbe available in bookstores. Jaime launches the new format with a superhero yarn:Penny Century has acquired superpowers, but is half-mad with grief and rampagingthrough the galaxy. A motley group of superheroes assemble to try to stop her.Only the first half of the saga, it combines Jaime's razor-sharpcharacterization and superlative art with wildly inventive, Kirby-style action.Gilbert Hernandez has these stories: "Tamanny" (rookie cop vs. demonic drugusers); "Papa" (a turn-of-the-century story involving a traveling businessman);"The New Adventures of Duke and Sammy" (superpowered Martin and Lewis impostorsin outer space); "The Tender Room" ( Into the Wild as re-imagined byBeto); "Chiro el Indio" (written by third brother Mario Hernandez); and "NeverSay Never" (a kangaroo gets lucky in Las Vegas).
