Mario Hernandez, co-creator of LOVE & ROCKETS, will be at the Cartoon Art Museum this weekend.
Mario has been with us since the first Latino Comics Expo, and we welcome him back once again. On Saturday, he'll be hosting a screening of "Trashman: The Art of Spain Rodriguez", a short film on the legendary underground cartoonist who passed away November of 2012. Mario, a good friend of Spain, appeared in a talk with him at last year's Expo. Mario will share some memories about Rodriguez after the screening.
This September, Cedar Grove Publishing will be releasing a new book by Mario called "Niñas de la Tierra" (Sowbugs):
"From the hot suburban streets of Southern California to the
sun drenched coast of Mexico and back again, two estranged Latina cousins
re-unite and unravel a curious mystery involving local folk legends, archeology
and a long absent father, thought to have all but abandoned his struggling
family. With the help of yet another pretty and popular cousin, an annoying but
clever little sister and a put upon brother exiled to grandmas house, this motley
team blend untapped talents and bravery becoming closer as their adventure
shows them the ways of family loyalty, camaraderie and teamwork."
* Please note that Mario will only be attending the Expo on Saturday, June 1.
