Just discovered Jaime Hernandez's new comic strip La Maggie La Roca in the New York Times, featuring characters I was reading about in his Love and Rockets comics way back when I was in art school in Toronto. His drawing is as gorgeous as ever, and I love the fact that his characters are older, sometimes wiser, but still very human and still having crazy adventures. You can check out his strip here. Have a look at the Fantagraphics website for more about Jaime. Be sure to check out his brother Gilbert's work, too––particularly the Palomar series, which started out as the surreal Heartbreak Soup comics.
