An event 40 years in the making! The Los Angeles Public Library is pleased to present Jaime, Gilbert, and Mario Hernandez aka Los Bros Hernandez in conversation with actor and comedian Chris Estrada, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Love and Rockets.
In 1982 when the first issue of Love and Rockets came out,Gilbert and Jaime (occasionally working with their brother, Mario) were young, struggling, unknown cartoonists who were bucking the dominant comic book trend of costumed characters with intimate, complex, humane stories told in comics form. Now in its 40th year of publication, L&R has appeared in a variety of formats over the years and continues to do so to this day.
Moderating this session will be comedian Chris Estrada, co-creator and star of Hulu’s new comedy series This Fool.
Viewers attending this free virtual program will have a chance to win a copy of Amor Y Cohetes.
Streaming live on the library’s YouTube channel.
