(W) Gilbert Hernandez (A/CA) Gilbert Hernandez
This crime thriller tells the story of Maria M., whose life south of the border is a tale of sex, drugs, violence, and power. She later marries a drug kingpin, whose son learns Maria's secret, leading to a violent gangland bloodbath. Maria M. collects 2013's Maria M. Book One and the never-before-published Book Two for the first time. Longtime Love & Rockets readers will recognize a metatwist: Maria M. doubles as a "biopic" of the mother of Hernandez's most
beloved character: Luba from Love and Rockets!
