Hernandez Bros. Interview, 1988

Hi guys – today we’re talking about Love & Rockets, which is an ’80s comic that deals with all kinds of stuff, among it the punk scene / latinx culture in LA at the time. I’m attaching this interview with the artists/creators, the Hernandez Bros., because I think it gives lots of insight into the the way the comic interacted with & came out of those cultures. The interview is long & exhaustive, so you probably won’t read the whole thing – but if anyone is interested in working with the comic this semester, you could [command+f] (or whatever the PC version of “find” is) the aspect of the comic you’re looking at (“punk,” “sexuality,” “Mexico,” or whatever else you’re interested in) and learn a lot about how that played a role for the creators.
