Love and Rockets Book 12: Poison River
Gilbert Hernandez has revised and expanded his epic, Godfather-like masterpiece from the pages of Love and Rockets for this edition, adding close to 50 new pages of story and art (including some much-needed chapter breaks). "Poison River" traces the childhood of Luba, her teenage marriage to gangster Peter Rio, the secrets behind her mysterious mother, all the way up to her subsequent escape and arrival in Palomar. "Poison River" introduces a number of characters and themes that have occupied later issues of Love and Rockets (including Luba's mother Maria and her sinister guardian angel Gorgo), and is a riveting page-turner besides, with lots of sex, drugs, guns, politics, and women who can crack walnuts with their stomachs. The additional "director's cut" material, which clarifies and expands on a lot of the events the original version glossed over, makes this a must-have for any Love and Rockets fan.
