The Village Voice has a big cover story on Jaime Hernandez:

While Hernandez’s L&R women have often been lookers, over the past 29 years he has aged them beyond youthful pulchritude into emotionally believable adults, starting with the booty-ful Margarita Luisa Chascarrillo and that lithest of live wires, Esperanza Leticia Glass. More commonly known as Maggie and Hopey, these on-again, off-again lovers form the core of an ever-evolving, magic-realist universe, which includes the baroquely unstable Isabel Maria Ortiz Ruebens (Izzy) and the ridiculously gorgeous Beatriz Garcia (a/k/a Penny Century). Not wanting to be the hundredth journalist to simply query Hernandez on what his wife has called his “uncanny knack for female patter and pattern,” I’ve instead offered to take him and Hignite on a jaunt to the Museum of Modern Art.


The Voice website has only a tiny version of the cover, so until we can get a better version of it, here’s that, and a sketchbook piece.

Courtesy of the nice folks at Abrams, here’s the whole cover:

  1. Gangsta.

    That’s going right to the lamenating machine.

  2. Hoppers 13 in the Apple, ese…

    /wesside, yo

  3. Beautiful image, but L&R is and always shall be West Coast, not East Coast. This picture is just plain wrong. :D

    (Nice sign, Hopey.)

    Dude, they’re tourists! That’s why Maggie is holding the map upside down and looking all confused!

    Instead of being the 100th journalist to ask Jaime the same old questions, I’d do an interview with him about Lucha Libre, especially old school 80s Lucha.

  6. “And when you’re outta town, represent your ground.”

    I can’t see any room for criticism, this is one of the best Jaime Hernandez covers (even if not for his comic) in a LONG time.

    Picked up two this evening!

  7. I’d have asked Xaime about the LA Punk Scene in the late ’70s: the PLUGZ— SOCIAL DISTORTION— FEAR— X— BLACK FLAG.

    Just to expand that music section from the TCJ No.126’s interview con Los Bros….

    California sobre todos!

  8. This is great! I take the train during the week, and this is a great reason to pick up the Village Voice.

    When did/does this issue come out?
