Love and Rockets Book 09: Flies on the Ceiling, Included in this collection from two of the most brilliant cartoonists America are some of the finest achievements from Los. Bros! Jaime's classic stories "Izzy-in-Mexico" and "Spring 1982" demonstrate his narrative and graphic mastery, and his tongue-in-cheek soap opera "Ninety-Three Million Miles from the Sun... and Counting" is a classic Maggie and Hopey story. All this, plus "Li'l Ray" (done in the style of classic Dennis the Menace comics), "Below My Window Lurks My Head" (Ray vs. Danita's jealous and murderous ex-husband), and more. While Gilbert has only two major stories in this volume, they're some of his best: "Frida" is an extraordinary comics biography of the Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo, and "A Folk Tale" is a funny and very modern re-telling of...well, a classic folk tale.
