Whoah! Speaking of los bros, it looks like Jordan's been hanging out with Jaime, or at least spending a lot of time with the second volume of Love and Rockets. The lead story in this niftily designed new comic book series from the renowned indy comics man about town, "Below the Shade of Night," features a smart, tight line, that, combined as it is with a sharp placement of solid blacks, catapults Mr. Crane to the forefront of potential heirs to the legendary Hernandez style. Both this story, and the next, "Keeping Two," which equally divide the issue between them, embody the theme implied by the title of the series. Each of the stories presents an anxiety that is rooted in the follies and ignorance of childhod, adolescence and young adulthood -- each after their own fashion. And, as you would expect from someone who is widely respected for his design, this is a nice package and priced with your pocketbook in mind. This series is off to a great start. Here's wishing it a long run.
