Yes, this volume does indeed collect Jaime's contribution to the first two issues of the latest incarnation of Love and Rockets: New Stories. BUT, God and Science is not just any old reprint. NO! It is an expanded edition with 30 (count 'em) new pages of material that expands several scenes, adds at least one new one, includes the covers to the apocryphal issues in which these stories are supposed to have originally appeared, and continues the story with an all new epilogue! Together this makes for a definitive revision of what is surely one of the most original takes on the superhero genre. Weaving the tropes and conventions of classic Silver Age and (although to a lesser extent) Golden Age superhero comics into the whole cloth of the "Locas Universe" featuring Maggie & Co. gives Jaime – and his readers – access to wholly unique perspectives from which to view, comment upon, and, ultimately, transform the genre. God and Science gives us a look at what is actually happenning when we read comics – specifically those containing a strong element of fantasy, but the insights here pertain to all. Aspects of our identities are forged in our imaginations. Which aspects? are they fixed or in flux? Reading comics triggers our imaginations and connects us to our identities. Jaime explores this process by collapsing and conflating the normally separate and distinct levels of "reality" and "fantasy" into a single integrated experience. THIS is a comic book: expert, entertaining, enriching, enlightening... and fun!
