My friend, Kristy, helped put together an exhibit to celebrate 30 years of Love & Rockets (one of my very favorite comics). We arrived at the store just in time for Christmas carolers. Said ‘hey’ to friends and co-workers. Then the Hernandez brothers signed stuff for me while I awkwardly said nothing… Haha. They’re real nice. :)
Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez. (You can kinda see the badass screenprint I bought behind them.)
A collage of art and artifacts. Eep! I love old photos.
A Moebius letter that calls Love & Rockets a “perfect” drawing.
Wow! a Moebius “fanboy” to Love & Rockets? This is blowing my mind…
Omigosh, I know. (I wish I knew French!)
Love and Rockets is one of my favorite indie comics. The art is so clean and captures the different stories perfectly. Wish I could draw as well as they do. (said the world’s laziest artist/ dishwasher)
It’s one of my favorites too- possibly the first ‘cool’ comic book series I ever got into. Ugh, too good!
I think I see some Building Stories behind Gilbert’s shoulder…and some other Building Stories-related thing behind that. Hey, I think I need that mysterious second thing!
might be the display that came with the books. I STILL need to pick up Building Stories. It’s top of my list for 2013 readin’
I have investigated and discovered that a build-your-own Building Stories building was released. Maybe that’s it in the back there.
