GEB is a Non Profit project based on a fantasy series begun by two people. After David McRae passed, Kevin Conner was left with the rights of all aspects of the universe he had created. The dream is to involve readers, families, young fans, as we tell a story of Magical People trying to save the world, and use the money that is raised through sales to donate directly toward education and conservation efforts. The story revolves around a damaged world, which has grown to giant sized proportions. The people in this world are able to cast magic, and have to make a decision on whether or not to allow the world to be retaken by the once ruling Gigan giants who have left it in their care.

Sep 26, Apr 23, D. As the jacket blurb says: It's probably hard to imagine now, if one were to come to the material fresh this is at least my third time reading the books, since the early '90s , the state of comics in the mid-'80s, but it was pretty bleak. There are VERY few creators who not only owned and entirely created their work, but made it through the boom of the '90s AND are still creating new work of the same characters of at least the same calibre Cultural relevance aside, this first volume is fun, engaging reading, with entries from Jaime and his Hoppers characters then pursuing Maggie as a 'prosolar mechanic,' rather than her later just something travails sort of thing , from Beto with some Paul Pope-inspiring sci-fi as well as the first sight of what would become the spectacular tales rooted in the small town of Palomar, and even from the rarely-seen Mario, offering a politically-infused sci-fi story worthy of The Outer Limits!
This is not a book I'd recommend to someone not ready to sink the funds into the entire saga thus far! Feb 25, Summer rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is an interesting one - it seems so different in tone from Los Bros's later works, but the artwork is so solid, and a lot of what makes them great is visible - Jaime's punk rock aesthetic and keen character building, Beto's zany sci-fi weirdness and great world building.
It's a little depressing seeing how the latter brother has deteriorated in art and writing skill, though. Apr 30, Dan Wilson rated it it was ok Shelves: Love and Rockets helped shape my generation. Reading it now after so many years I remember I first heard of it when I was in university, back in - how time flies!!
Those were the days. Jun 27, Sarospice rated it liked it.
You can pick up any volume and instantly be in Hopper's or Palomar, and get an entire heart breaking story. The art is there but they hadn't perfected their storytelling ability and flow. Of course it comes I plan to read every volume again. Jan 22, Cameron rated it it was amazing Shelves: I still haven't found an equal to the Hernandez Brothers when it comes to world building with so little effort.
Within half a page, you realize how deep and rich each bizarre world and character is with basically no exposition. And the stories themselves range from intimate portraits to the mundane to parody often in juxtaposition to the wild sprawling world behind them. There's more heart in the tiniest stroke of this book then all the mainstream comics of the 80's. Jun 23, Dawn rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I was 16 I went into a comic shop looking for movie poster postcards and randomly picked up a graphic novel.
Flicking through, I was hooked. And no matter how many graphic novels I have read since that first time and it's a lot! This volume is a wonderful beginning to a lifelong love affair with the work of Los Bros Hernandez. Dec 28, Baal Of rated it liked it Shelves: I found this volume to be a bit unstructured as compared to the Luba volume I read before. I still enjoyed it, but it seems a bit formative, lacking cohesion. Still, it's creative and the artwork is nice, and the characters are idiosyncratic and varied, far more than typical superhero fare from the same time period. Aug 17, Bill rated it liked it.
Let me state, I adore Love and Rockets. It might be my favorite comic series sorry, Spider Jerusalem , but this is the weakest in the series. It's their first, so totally understandable. The artwork is there, but the story telling hadn't quite blossomed yet. Still a great introduction. Aug 12, StrictlySequential rated it it was amazing Shelves: Apr 19, Daniel Lee rated it it was amazing.

My instant love of Jaime Hernandez's art made complete sense after I read an interview and found that his main influence was Dan DeCarlo Archie comics. Anyway, I don't think the Hernandez b This is graphic novel is the whole reason I set foot into a comic book store. I'm a fan of theirs for life!
Aug 01, Chris rated it it was amazing. I don't think I'll bother to add them all, but the entire run of Love and Rockets, the seminal black and white comic from the Hernandez brothers, is great. Found these in high school, and the art and the stories are like nothing else, beautiful black and white line art and day in the life stories from the LA barrio or a Spanish-speaking country, with some other fantastic stories thrown in.
The brothers have their own storylines and characters that they stick to, and follow their characters throu I don't think I'll bother to add them all, but the entire run of Love and Rockets, the seminal black and white comic from the Hernandez brothers, is great. The brothers have their own storylines and characters that they stick to, and follow their characters through decades; when I found these stories in high school, Xaime's barrio women were young punk rockers.
They're still being published now and then.
Head up, adult themes and sex, not for kids. Oct 11, Lauren Levine rated it liked it Shelves: By mixing realism and an iconic drawing style, Hernandez creates an intricate world that Maggie and Hopey live in, giving the reader a chance to step inside and see themselves in the characters as well. Jul 22, Barry added it Shelves: I was really disappointed with this book. In fact, I almost put it down several times--the only reason I plowed through was because of its reputation. Aside from two of the stories, the rest were pretty uninteresting. Sometimes the artwork was hard to follow as well.
It definitely does some interesting things with gender and traditional expectations for comics, but it was so dry and pulpy that anything interesting was covered under layers of drudgery. And I was really excited about reading the w I was really disappointed with this book. Sep 06, Lauren Munoz rated it it was ok. Neat sci-fi ideas, chaotic and uneven execution. I liked that the stories focused on diverse female characters and had some quirky weirdness to them. But while there are a few readable selections, most of the stories abandon a traditional narrative framework without replacing it with anything worth pushing through, and I often found myself bored and rushing to get to the end of a selection.
I've heard such great things about this series that I may check out a later volume first efforts are hard Neat sci-fi ideas, chaotic and uneven execution. I've heard such great things about this series that I may check out a later volume first efforts are hard , but I would not recommend this one. Dec 25, Osvaldo rated it really liked it. I have never read it before, but it has been on my list for a long time and this seemed like opportunity to do it.
How could I have slept on this so long? The art is fantastic and the stories are weird and all over the place, but I don't mind being made scramble a bit to understand what is happening. The BEM story arc is great and weird and the Mechanix epistolary portion with Maggie's story is a bizarre mash-up. I am psyched to read more. Mar 09, Kaethe rated it liked it.
My roommate loaned me his comics to try to bring my taste up-to-date. I didn't really get into the Hernandez series though. I had more luck later with Cerebus Book The Dark Knight Returns. Oct 30, Lindsay rated it liked it Shelves: A classic book so I had to give it a shot. I loved half of the stories. Mostly the ones by Jamie Hernandez. His artwork style and sci-fi stories were more interesting to me. In all it was kind of a hard read. Very very wordy and I didn't totally understand the endings which was actually ok and they used some Spanish slang that I couldn't find explanations for even online.
In all it was oddly entertaining but I had to force myself to read it. Won't stop me from book 2 though. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
