    Volume 1 - 1st printing. "The Maggie and Hopey Stories!" By Jaime Hernandez. One of the most humane, graceful and imaginatively inexhaustible artists in American popular culture, Jaime Hernandez has created in Locas one of the great American novels of the last 25 years, graphic or otherwise. Maggie's story begins in the early-1980s Southern California rock scene, when it was shifting from the excesses of glitter rock to the gritty basics of punk and new wave. She quickly befriends Hopey Glass, a feisty anti-authoritarian punkette who quickly becomes Maggie's on-again, off-again lover and a constant presence in her life throughout the book. This book contains all the Maggie stories from the first Love & Rockets series. Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 704 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $49.95.

    Volume 2 - 1st printing. "Maggie, Hopey, and Ray!" By Jaime Hernandez. This second, doorstop-sized omnibus volume of "Locas" tales by Jaime Hernandez - collecting over a dozen years' worth of stories from the award-winning Love & Rockets comics - picks up shortly after Maggie and Hopey's long-awaited reunion at the end of the Locas hardcover. Even though her love life remains as chaotic as ever, Hopey takes her first few steps toward responsible adulthood with a real job (as a teacher), while a depressed, divorced Maggie ends up as the manager of a fleabag apartment building, where she continues to wrestle with the demons of her past - most prominently in the stunning centerpiece of the volume, the graphic novel-length "Ghost of Hoppers," with its hallucinatory dream finale. On the "guy" side Ray, still carrying a major torch for Maggie, falls in with the "Frogmouth," the volatile bombshell (arguably the sexiest woman Jaime has ever drawn, which is saying something) whose ties to local thugs cause some hairy moments indeed. Of course, Maggie, Hopey, and Ray's paths continue to intersect in Jaime's increasingly complex, always richly imagined world, along with those of characters both old (Izzy Ortiz, Penny Century) and new (the jockette Angel, the mysterious superheroine Alarma). Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 418 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $39.95.
