|Wrestling, romance, and more in the fourth collection of Maggie stories from Love and Rockets.|
From the Publisher:
Picking up right after Perla La Loca, the third volume of the definitive?Maggie? series repackaging, this compilation of stories from Jaime Hernandez's solo comic Penny Century and his subsequent return to Love and Rockets(Volume II) charts the further lives of his beloved ?Locas.?
But first... wrestling! Penny Century starts off with a blast with ?Whoa,Nellie!,? a unique graphic novelette in which Maggie, who has settled in withher pro-wrestler aunt for a while, experiences that wild and woolly world first-hand.
Then it's back to chills and spills with the old cast of Hopey, Ray Dominguez, and Izzy Ortiz--including Maggie'sromantic dream fantasia ?The Race? and the definitive Ray story, ?Everybody Loves Me, Baby.?
Penny Century also features two major ?flashback? stories: ?Bay of Threes? finally reveals the full back story behindBeatriz ?Penny Century? Garcia, Maggie's long-time, bleached-blonde bombshell friend (who gives this volume its nameand can currently be seen as a super-villainess in Love and Rockets: New Stories), while ?Home School? is one of Hernandez's popular looks at his characters' lives from when they were little kids, drawn in an adorable simplified Dennis theMenace type style.
