The long-awaited sequel to the perennial classic Love and Rockets collection "Palomar" finally arrives.  The iconic, imposing, hammer-wielding matriarch Luba (along with her ever-expanding family) takes center stage in this omnibus hardcover collection -- over 100 stories chronicling Luba's life as an immigrant in turn-of-the-millennium Southern California.

Readers of mature, intelligent comics have thrilled to Love and Rockets for over 25 years; the arrival of this book is a comics event.

Description of excerpt: pages 4-9, featuring Luba's precocious niece Venus.
