Featuring Hernandez's longtime Love and Rockets heroine Maggie, the suppression of family history is the initial thread that ties The Love Bunglers together. Because these secrets can't be dealt with openly, their lingering effect is even more powerful. But Maggie's ability to navigate and find meaning in her life is what's made her a compelling character. This story encapsulates Maggie's emotional history as it moves from resignation to memories of loss, to sudden violence (a theme in this story), and eventually to love and contentment.
"Jaime Hernandez is the god of comics. He's been working on his series Love and Rockets with his brother, Gilbert, for the past 40+ years. Within this series, they serialised The Love Bunglers, the story of Maggie and Ray. And their on-again, off-again romance. Jaime masterfully captures slice-of-life stories with his diverse cast of characters. Love Bunglers is one of the most beautiful graphic novels I've ever read, one of few to move me to tears." - Dani @ OK
