CBR TV @ CCI 2011: Jaime Hernandez on Conventions, Longevity and “Rockets”

Jaime Hernandez, part of Los Bros. Hernandez, the influential co-creator of “Love and Rockets” came aboard the CBR TV yacht at Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss nearly thirty years of “Rockets,” how CCI has changed over the years and why he still loves conventions.

Hernandez also discusses the past, present and future of “Rockets,” as well as why he’s so comfortable telling stories with these characters. Additionally, he touches on the different creative processes he and his brother Gilbert have and how that leads to stories like “Browntown.”

    So, why is there a Gilbert Hernandez drawing behind Xaime on the home page image?u00a0

    Leon, I must’ve missed the racist part of the interview… but I think In was too distracted trying to count how many times both parties involvedn said, “You know.” Seriously, Xaime, you’re one of my all-time favorite ncartoonists, but DUDE! Exorcise that demon!

    My best convention find was in 1988, Love And Rockets number 1, first printing that the guy for some weird reason sold me for 25 dollars. A case of a guy not knowing what he had. Now going for 700 dollars on Ebay.

    Hearing Xaime say “I almost blew my wad” was totally worth sitting through those ads.

    Not somewhere I can watch video now but I look forward to checking it out.nnLast year’s issue…yeah, there are lots of comics I would describe as “disturbing” or “horrifying”, but very few where I mean those words as compliments.u00a0 It was a deeply affecting, heartbreaking story (two, actually — Beto put in some amazing work too), and it’s stuck with me.u00a0 Legitimately one of the best comics I’ve ever read.
