really liked it
The “Ray Obsesses Over Vivian While Pining After Maggie” story outstays its welcome, but everything else here is fantastic. Maggie and Hopey come to terms with their new lives as semi-responsible adults while battling (sometimes literal) demons from their pasts. The big Maggie story here (collected elsewhere as Love and Rockets, Vol. 22: Ghost of Hoppers) contains some of Jaime’s best-ever cartooning, as he experiments with jarring panel transitions and genuinely frightening horror movie imagery
This volume held the weakest of the Locas stories. Too much focus on Ray, who is dull as dirt, and Vivian, who is equally boring. Hopey’s story arc was interesting. She uses people badly, and it comes back to bite her. I will give Jaime Hernandez this: some people find the huge and rotating cast of characters confusing, but it’s very realistic as he follows Maggie and Hopey through the years. People move in and out of their lives, just like in the real world.
