Luba Three Daughters TPB (2006 FB) A Love and Rockets Collection comic books
Love and Rockets: Book 23 - The Luba Trilogy: Book 3 of 3 - 1st printing. By Gilbert Hernandez. Luba: Tome 3 - Luba: Three Daughters is the final book in Gilbert Hernandez's post-Palomar trilogy, continuing the story of matriarch Luba and her extended family's travails in the United States after her Central American hometown is destroyed at the end of Palomar. It focuses on Luba and her two sisters, Fritz and Petra, exploring the complex relationships that form between family and how the experiences and actions of one generation influence the next. Renowned for his female characters, Hernandez intersperses his main narrative with "The Kid Stuff Kids," a series of lighthearted and playful one-pagers starring the young children of the three sisters, richly juxtaposed against the complex family drama at work in Three Daughters. Hernandez's mix of Latino soap opera, magic realist touches and rich naturalism speak to audiences about the changes that come with age and experience, and they are unparalleled in comics. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 144 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $16.95.
