In 1996, Jaime Hernandez and his brother Gilbert ended the original run of the most influential alternative comic of the last 20 years, the seminal Love & Rockets. His follow-up? Whoa Nellie!
Showcasing the lighter side of Hernandez's remarkable talents, this volume collects the three-issue series of Jaime's fun, raucous, all-ages-accessible women's-wrestling extravaganza and includes six all-new pages, bringing to the forefront the female wrestling milieu that only peppered the background Jaime's Love & Rockets storylines.
A wonderful, self-contained romp, Whoa Nellie! focuses on the female championship tag-team of Xochitl and Gina, as they defend their title against younger, more marketable stars and cope with the prospect of their careers coming to a close. Best of all, this collection includes some of the most stellar action sequences ever drawn in comics. The surprising emotional depth guarantees this to be a vintage Jaime Hernandez tale!
