Jaime Hernandez, co-creator of the famed Los Bros Hernandez's alt-comic "Love and Rockets," is a legend with fans everywhere. Among the most notable is Pulitzer Prize-winning author (and comics and graphic novels lover) Junot Diaz, who's cited Los Bros as a major influence on both his writing and his sensibilities.
This month the much-anticipated deluxe edition of Diaz's short story collection, "This Is How You Lose Her," comes out. But the buzz hasn't been about the stories, because this time the big story's actually been the pictures -- drawn by the unmistakable hand of Jaime Hernandez.
On Monday, November 4, Jaime Hernandez comes to The Crawford Family Forum for an evening of art, books, and conversation. KPCC "Off-Ramp" producer Kevin Ferguson talks with Hernandez about his latest work, how it relates to "Love and Rockets," and where his future's taking him.
