book 2 of Love and Rockets
by Gilbert Hernandez, Jaime Hernandez, Mario Hernandez
This collection contains Heartbreak Soup, the first real story in Gilbert's long Central American soap opera. Since we've already been introduced to the main characters, it gets into plot material quickly. It also has 100 Rooms, a longish Jaime story, in my opinion the first one of his to be really good. Although Jaime's art looks cleaner and more polished, I think that I prefer Gilbert's slightly. Each of the brothers' art was in its final form by this point, but their dialogue still sounded stilted from time to time.
