As a young aimless Latino punk rocker, Jaime Hernandez, along with his brothers Gilbert and Mario, self-published the first issue of ‘Love and Rockets’ in 1981.

It was picked up by Fantagraphics Books in 1982 and ran 50 issues before the brothers took a break to pursue solo projects.

Jaime’s titles included ‘Whoa, Nellie!’, ‘Maggie and Hopey Color Fun’ and ‘Penny Century’.

‘Love and Rockets’ was revived in 2000 and continues to be one of comics’ all-time greats.

Jaime will discuss the ‘Love and Rockets’ phenomenon, his career and future plans.
