With brothers Mario and Gilbert, Jaime Hernandez created the widely acclaimed “Love and Rockets” comic book series. The Hernandezes grew up in a family of comic book lovers, and Jaime has said that “I wanted to draw comics my whole life.” Jaime’s contribution to “Love and Rockets” has been primarily the “Locas” stories, which focus on a group of Latinas in California, where he grew up. Jaime Hernandez’s latest work is in “Love and Rockets: The Covers” (Fantagraphics).
