Launch of the new Abrams book:
The Art of Jaime Hernandez-The Secrets of Life and Death.
Book Signing and Discussion with Jaime Hernandez, Jordan Crane, and Todd Hignite

Jaime Hernandez, along with his two brothers, Gilbert and Mario, changed American cartooning forever when they self-published their first comic book, Love and Rockets in 1981. Over twenty-five years later it is still going strong. Hernandez’s stories chronicle the lives of some of the most memorable and fully formed characters the comics form has ever seen. His female protagonists, masterfully delineated with humor, candor, and breathtaking realism, come to life within California’s Mexican-American culture and punk milieu. an acknowledged inspiration to countless artists-without Love and Rockets, the entire graphic novel landscape would look very different and that much worse without it.
The notoriously private artist has opened his archives for the first time for acclaimed Editor/Writer Todd Hignite, revealing never-before-seen sketches, childhood drawings, and unpublished work, alongside his most famous Love and Rockets material. Beautifully designed by the award winning cartoonist and designer, Jordan Crane, this new book is the definitive biographical and critical essay on the artist.
