Read full description of the books:
A volume with a title like this and a cover like this, you'd think it was going to explore the mystery that is Izzy. No dice. The title story is only the first one, reveals only a tiny fraction of her backstory, and the rest of Jaime's work in the book is devoted to advancing the lives of previously-background characters like Doyle, Danita & Ray.
The contributions from Gilbert (I think this is the last volume in this set to include both Bros.) are...odd. He offers no Palomar stories, but a brief bio on Frida Kahlo is interesting if dry, and his other pieces tend toward the abstract & non-narrative. He catches up in the next volume, though.
Not what I'd call groundbreaking, but it does fill in some blanks that probably didn't need to be filled.

Read information about the authorGilbert and his brother Jaime Hernández often write together under the name "Los Bros Hernandez".
Gilbert Hernandez, born in 1957, enjoyed a pleasant childhood in Oxnard, California, with four brothers and one sister. In Gilbert’s words, they were “born into a world with comic books in the house.” His childhood enthusiasm for the medium was equaled only by his appetite for punk rock.
Initiated by older brother Mario and bankrolled by younger brother Ismael, Gilbert created Love and Rockets #1 with his brother Jaime in 1981. Over 30 years later, the series is regarded as a modern classic and the Hernandez brothers continue to create some of the most startling, original, and intelligent comic art ever seen.
From 1983 to 1996, Gilbert produced the now legendary Palomar saga, collected in the graphic novels Heartbreak Soup and Human Diastrophism, and considered to be one of the defining bodies of literature of its era.
Gilbert lives in Las Vegas, NV, with his wife Carol and daughter Natalia.
