Beautiful advertising illustration for the 1985 Love & Rockets T-shirt by Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez. Truly amazing jam drawing by Los Bros., featuring Maggie, Hopey, Luba, Penny Century, Errata Stigmata, and more. Pen and ink. Matted to 18" x 21". Art is in excellent condition. Signed and dated by Jaime and Gilbert.

The image on the T-shirt is a photostat, the rest is all original drawing.

Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez's Love and Rockets is perhaps the most important title to emerge out of the early 80's independent comics scene, with it's humanistic stories and indelible characters it would influence a generation of comics creators and readers alike. From Jaime's East L.A. new wave opus Locas starring Maggie and Hopey along with a long list of supporting players to Gilbert's Palomar stories following the life of Luba, a hard traveled family matriarch. These stories spanned years and included all the ups and downs that we all experience. Though the format has changed more than once the Hernandez's continue to churn out these stories with semi-regularity ensuring that they will endure for generations to come.
