This is what happens, Larry.

This is what happens when comic book nerds go to Jamaica.

Jaime Hernandez’s Love and Rockets digests make unbelievable beach reads, by the way. You may recall me panning Locas in The Comics Journal a while back; I was really proud of that review because it actually caused at least one drunk guy to grab me at dinner and yell at me, which to me is the hallmark of a good Journal review. But I’ve since come around on the “Locas” stories, thanks in large part to these wonderful digests Maggie the Mechanic and The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S.. They’re much more complete, much more readable…just the way the stories were meant to be presented. It’s like a soap opera shot by Fellini.
