Love And Rockets: Penny Century

Description

Picking up right after Perla La Loca, the third volume of the definitive "Maggie" series repackaging, this compilation of stories from Jaime Hernandez' solo comic Penny Century and his subsequent return to Love and Rockets (Volume 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 and can currently be seen as a super-villainess in Love and Rockets New Stories), while "Home School" is one of Hernandez' popular looks at his characters' lives from when they were little kids, drawn in an adorable simplified Dennis the Menace style.
