Tom Spurgeon recently posted his "Black Friday Holiday Shopping Guide '09" on comicsreporter.com. This included many gift ideas for comics enthusiasts, listed under the heading "Eighteen Perennials" was the newest LOVE AND ROCKETS LIBRAY seven-volume set reprinting the entirety of the original series in yet another format.

Hard-to-find Mario Hernandez comics/anthologies:
Of course, if you are looking for something for the hardcore LOVE AND ROCKETS fan, you might want to do some digging around for some of the lesser-known anthology work of Big Brother/Inspiration Mario, or his sole solo book BRAIN CAPERS. RENEGADE ROMANCE had at least two issues, and all three Bros. contributed to that fondly remembered anthology. Some of these were in stock at various sites when I searched:
ALL SHOOK UP (Rip Off Press) lastgasp.com
BRAIN CAPERS (Fantagraphics) lastgasp.com
BUZZARD (Cat-Head Comics) in many issues
DARK HORSE PRESENTS somewhere in 93-104?? mycomicshop.com
HECK (Rip Off Press) ripoffpress.com
REAL GIRL (Fantagraphics) lastgasp.com
RENEGADE ROMANCE (Renegade Press)
THE NEW COMICS ANTHOLOGY (1991) Bob Callahan, editor
