I feel really middle-aged now. I used to be a serious comics reader, and my speciality was collecting adult comics with women main characters. It was an easy specialism in the 80s/90s- there weren't that many. I guess and hope it's different now. I loved Los Bros Hernandez most of all- they were the Pixies of the comics world- ushering in a new era, and rocking with the zeitgeist of "my generation". And I have a special thing for any art created by men about women that makes you think the authors are really women in disguise. The novelist Michael Faber is my latest interest in that regard.
Anyway, my gorgeous friend Jake has recently been discovering comics which means they've been in my mind again- so I just looked up Los Bros Hernandez and Love & Rockets, and discovered that the brothers have started Love & Rockets again! And I didn't know! I have the complete collection from the first time round... now I'm gonna have to go out and try to find these new ones, which I hope I can do online because I don't feel like braving a comics shop with my lack of up-to-date-ness. They are very cool places, like the record shop in High Fidelity.
