Originally released as a three-issue magazine series in the acclaimed international “Ignatz” format, Children of Palomar collects, into one handsome book, all three stories, representing Gilbert Hernandez’s literary return to the small Central American town of Palomar. These stories feature tales of adventure and everyday magic starring many of Gilbert’s most beloved characters.
All three issues deal with the classic characters of Palomar such as sweet Pipo, her sharp-tongue sister Carmen, sheriff Chelo, and the gang of boys who help start it all: studious Heraclio, tall and fey Israel, disfigured but good-natured Vicente, and girl-crazy Jesus and Satch.
