My Convention Sketchbook 2003-2013 #29 & #30 Los Bros. Hernandez

Here’s a sketchbook two-in-one by the legendary Los Bros. Hernandez!  I like to call them the heart & soul of the modern Small Press(yes, I just made that up)!  They are always so nice, and approachable at conventions.

Love & Rockets started back in 1981 as a self published back & white magazine sized comic, by the 3 Hernandez brothers, Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario.  I would call that issue the Action Comics #1 of the modern Small Press(of course Raw Magazine #1 could also be considered for that honor), laying the groundwork and leading to future cartoonists like Dan Clowes, Chris Ware, and Seth.  Love & Rockets is currently in it’s third volume, and is published yearly by Fantagraphics in a softcover book format.

Gilbert, and Jaime drew these sketches for me at SDCC in 2004.
