Last week saw the release of Gilbert Hernadez' new graphic novel, Marble Season, a semi-autobiographical book based on his childhood. To say it's wonderful is stating the obvious for those of you who are already familiar with Gilbert's thirty plus year output in this medium, mostly via his seminal alternative comic series, Love and Rockets. If you haven't read any Gilbert Hernadez comics previously, Marble Season would be a great new work of his to get yourself introduced to the rich characters and storytelling (not to mention fantastic art) that Gilbert Hernandez does.
