Abstract:

"Penny Century, the fourth volume of Jaime's 'Locas' stories collects the first several years' worth of stories immediately following the conclusion of the first volume of love and Rockets from such comics as Maggie and Hopey Color Fun and Penny Century. In addition to the travails and troubles of the newly-reunited Maggie and Hopey, this book features the uniquely entertaining graphic novella 'Whoa, Nellie!', in which Hernandez indulges his love for wrestling to the hilt and then some; 'Home School,' one of his acclaimed stories flashing back to his cast as little kids; Maggie's romantic dream fantasia, 'The Race'; the ultimate Ray D. story, 'everybody Loves Me, Baby'; and 'Bay of Threes,' the long awaited and surprisingly origin story for the bombshell blonde who gives this volume its name." -- Cover.
