I was in an antique store digging through the longboxes when I stumbled on two collections of Love& Rockets short stories, one by Jaime and one by Gilbert. With everything else I picked up there (mostly a lot of Shade The Changing Man and Lone Wolf And Cub), I could only afford one. I'd read Gilbert's Luba In America a few years back and wasn't impressed, so Jaime's it was.
Oh man I did not regret it in the least. It's pretty much all Maggie and Hopey stories from the first few issues, whether via Mechanics or Locas Tambien, it is all a great time.
