One of the most imaginative artists in American popular culture, Jaime Hernandez has sold over 1.5 million comic books since 1982. Locas is the story of Maggie, a bisexual Mexican-American woman coming of age during the 1980s Southern California rock scene, when the anarchic world of punk and new wave emerged. Hernandez's naturalistic storytelling and mastery of body language and facial expression, as well as his brilliant depiction of barrio life with its class and racial tensions, make Locas one of the great American novels of the last 25 years, graphic or otherwise.
