Includes Jaime Hernandez’s LA Times Book Prize-winning graphic novel The Love Bunglers, and much more — the thirteenth Complete Love and Rockets Library omnibus is chronologically the sixth in the Locas storyline.
The sublime, the superpowered, and the senior citizen converge in Angels and Magpies
, which collects the Gods and Science: Return of the Ti-Girls
and The Love Bunglers
graphic novels from the Love and Rockets Vol. III: New Stories
series, as well as Hernandez's 2006 serial for The New York Times
. In the latter, Maggie pays a visit to Queen Rena, who is living out her twilight days on an island after a lifetime as a wrestler and an adventuress. In the Ti-Girls segment, superheroics get a screwball spin when Angel of Tarzana and Maggie square off against Dark Penny Century. In the "Love Bunglers," held as perhaps Hernandez's greatest masterpiece in his decades-spanning career, and one of the great graphic novels of all time (it was hailed by Slate
and Publishers Weekly
as one of the best stories of the year), the past and present converge as Maggie and Ray's reunion is threatened by long-buried family secrets. This is the thirteenth volume in The Complete Love and Rockets Library
and chronologically the sixth part of the Locas storyline.
