Penny Century: The Love & Rockets Library - Locas Book 4

Picking up right after Perla La Loca, this compilation of stories from Jaime Hernandez's solo comic Penny Century and his subsequent return to Love and Rockets (Vol. II) charts the further lives of his beloved "Locas." But first... wrestling! Penny Century starts off with a blast with "Whoa, Nellie!," a unique graphic novelette in which Maggie, who has settled in with her pro-wrestler aunt for a while, experiences that wild and woolly world first-hand. Then it's back to chills and spills with the old cast of Hopey, Ray Dominguez, and Izzy Ortiz — including Maggie's romantic dream fantasia "The Race" and the definitive Ray story, "Everybody Loves Me, Baby." Penny Century also features two major "flashback" stories: "Bay of Threes" finally reveals the full back story behind Beatriz "Penny Century" Garcia, Maggie's long-time, bleached-blonde bombshell friend (who gives this volume its name), while "Home School" is one of Hernandez's popular looks at his characters' lives from when they were little kids, drawn in an adorable simplified Dennis the Menace type style. This volume also includes the Maggie & Hopey Color Fun one-shot, reproduced here in glorious black and white.

"At this point, I don't know what else there is to say about Jamie Hernandez or Love and Rockets. I suspect that one day he's going to make a truly terrible comic, if only because he must feel at least a little bit bad about showing nearly every other creator up so often. ...Penny Century is yet another masterpiece from a guy who turns them out seemingly like clockwork. If you haven't read it, you need to. ...Jamie Hernandez's exploration of life continues as an unimpeachable standard for comic book mastery." — Michael C. Lorah, Newsarama
