Description
Picking up right after Perla La Loca, the third volume of the definitive Maggie series repackaging, this compilation of stories from Jaime Hernandez's solo comic Penny Century and his subsequent return to Love and Rockets (Volume II) charts the further lives of his beloved Locas. But first... wrestling Penny Century starts off with a blast with Whoa, Nellie , a unique graphic novelette in which Maggie, who has settled in with her pro-wrestler aunt for a while, experiences that wild and woolly world first-hand. Then it's back to chills and spills with the old cast of Hopey, Ray Dominguez, and Izzy Ortiz including Maggie's romantic dream fantasia The Race and the definitive Ray story, Everybody Loves Me, Baby. Penny Century also features two major flashback stories: Bay of Threes finally reveals the full back story behind Beatriz Penny Century Garcia, Maggie's long-time, bleached-blonde bombshell friend (who gives this volume its name and can currently be seen as a super-villainess in Love and Rockets: New Stories), while Home School is one of Hernandez's popular looks at his characters lives from when they were little kids, drawn in an adorable simplified Dennis the Menace type style.
