Jaime whips readers back and forth across four decades in this long awaited tale of Maggie and Hopey's reconnection at a punk rock reunion. And in the process asks – and answers – the question, "What are we today, but all our yesterdays?" While Macbeth was cursed by fate and living on borrowed time, and so understandably down in the mouth, Maggie and Hopey are ever in the present, ever linking the past to the future, and carrying us, their followers on the other side of the veil, along with them, and so are much more than the sum of what has gone before.
We are well aware that most Copacetic customers were reading this saga as it was originally serialized in the pages of Love and Rockets (vol. 3 #7 & 8 + vol. 4 #1 - 5), but for those who have yet to experience this, the latest classic from the mighty pen of Jaime Hernandez – and those who, while having already read it (perhaps more than once) nevertheless want to enshrine this tale in its own standalone, deluxe, debossed hardcover volume – here it is!
