Love & Rockets ..... annually henceforth!

Fantagraphics has announced that Los Bros Hernandez (Jaime, Gilbert & Mario) will not release the planned 21st issue of their critical and cult favorite series [currently in its second iteration] Love and Rockets. Instead, following an extended hiatus, the 3rd volume of this award winning comic will premiere at next years Comicon International in San Diego and then fly back into comics shops in August 2008 as a 100 page annual tome priced at $14.99.

Fans of this stellar slice of life series, with a touch of the surreal, will have to endure the long wait, but it is certainly nice to know that the creators aren't throwing in the towel. Fantagraphics publisher Gary Groth mentioned that this effort will help place the book more securely into the book trade outlets, where the collected Love & Rockets volumes have already made serious inroads.
