The High Soft Lisp (Love and Rockets)
“Five six. Hundred twenty-eight pounds. Forty-three twenty-two thirty-six. High soft lisp. Genius level I.Q.” That's how motivational speaker Mark Herrera sums up Rosalba “Fritz” Martinez, bombshell, former punkette, former psychiatrist, “Z” movie star - in this supremely sexy, constantly surprising graphic novel. And Herrera should know, being only one of many to fall under Fritz's “lithping” spell - others including slobbish rocker Scott “The Hog” and high school nerd turned obsessive bodybuilder Enrique Escobar (and that's just her husbands).
Hernandez has taken this suite of stories (including the 48-page graphic novelette “High Soft Lisp”), originally serialized in the second volume of Love and Rockets, and fleshed them out with a dozen brand-new pages, creating an original and inventive (and very steamy) volume that, through its connections to his main character Luba (Fritz is Luba's half sister, and characters from the Luba stories pop up here), works both as a standalone graphic novel and a further exploration of Hernandez's rich world. Love and Rockets, the Hernandez Bros. series that's been ongoing for more than 25 years, has a loyal, international fanbase of both men and women who usually begin reading as teenagers and continue on into adulthood, follow the artists' work as they age into their 40s and 50s.
