This story, which ran under the simple title Love and Rockets in Love and Rockets from 1990 to 1992, takes us from plush Beverly Hills to the dangerous East side and introduces us to a dizzyingly diverse cast of characters, including a lowlife rock n roll band, a posse of black youths, a ditzy Hollywood mom and her spoiled son, a gay activist filmmaker and his rebellious, half-Iraqi daughter, and a group of racist thugs whose violent attack on an older woman sets the plot in motion � as well as bringing in several older characters, including Palomar expatriates (and lovers) Riri and Maricela, the surfers from Blood of Palomar, and some special surprise guests from Birdland.

Love and Rockets X does for contemporary Los Angeles what Robert Altmans Nashville did for that metropolis in the 70s � its a superbly observed portrait of a city in decline, a character study of over twenty men and women, girls and boys- its a comedy and a drama- its in short, Gilbert Hernandez at his very best! Black-and-white comics throughout
