Love and Rockets (often abbreviated L&R) is a comic book series by the brothers Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez, whose stories published in the series were independent of each other. It was one of the first comic books in the alternative comics movement of the 1980s.
The Hernandez brothers produced stories independently of each other. Gilbert and Jaime produced the majority of the material, and tended to focus on particular casts of characters and settings. Those of Gilbert usually focused on a cast of characters in the fictional Mexican village of Palomar; the stories often featured magic realist elements. The Locas stories of Jaime centered around a social group in Los Angeles, particularly the Latin-American friends and sometimes-lovers Maggie and Hopey.
