Cartoonist Jaime Hernandez appears in conversation with Michael Cavna, writer/artist and creator of The Washington Post’s Comic Riffs online column, at Politics & Prose on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 1 PM to discuss and sign his latest book IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME?
With his brothers Gilbert and Mario, Jaime Hernandez created Love and Rockets, one of the first comics to appear in the 1980s alternative comics movement. Hernandez has continued and expanded that series with his award-winning Locas narrative, chronicling the lives of a group of Latinas from their teenage years to today. Following 2014’s Love Bunglers, the latest installment gathers all the Locas work Hernandez has published serially over the last four years, tracking the story of Maggie and Hopey as they make a pilgrimage back to their old neighborhood, relive the early days of their relationship, and re-experience several decades worth of exuberance and heartbreak.
