In 1981 two Mexican-American brothers self-published their first comic book, titled "Love and Rockets", and 'changed American cartooning forever' according to "Publishers Weekly". Twenty-five years later it is still being published to critical and commercial success. Hernandez's moving stories chronicle the lives of the most memorable and fully formed characters the comic 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's heyday. In April 2006 Jaime Hernandez began serialising his work in the "New York Times Magazine", succeeding Chris Ware as the second artist to do so in "Times" history. The notoriously private artist has opened his archives for the first time, revealing never-before-seen sketches, childhood drawings and unpublished work, alongside his most famous "Love and Rockets" material.
