The seventh volume of Love and Rockets: New Stories finds Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez writing and drawing at the top of their game. In Jaime’s stories, Maggie and Hopey take a road trip to visit a “sick friend” while Ray visits some old sick friends of his own. Gilbert offers a suite of stories, including a sweeping epic of derring-do in which Fritz as Morgan Le Fey teams up with Aladdin; a WWII sci-fi thriller and “Daughters and Mothers and Daughters,” in which flashbacks to Luba’s mother Maria reveal how old secrets affect their family today.
