Love and Rockets enters its fourth decade with this installment of its acclaimed graphic novel-format iteration, featuring both old friends and new faces, and some genuine surprises… The cover shows Gilbert’s new star Killer in a pose and milieu that will bring back memories for long-time fans — imitating the hammer-wielding Luba in her adopted Palomar. Jaime continues to explore his intriguing new character Tonta: In “Fuck Summer,” Tonta is talked into joining the summer swim team but can’t figure out why the brand new swim coach knows her.
