The Education of Hopey Glass

Book - 2008
Average Rating:
Rate this:
A stand-alone graphic novel from the Locas universe. It starts with a barely-glimpsed slaying (Life Through Whispers) and ends with a funeral (Male Torso Found in LA River). New characters include long-suffering on-the-side squeeze Grace; Maggie's new roommate, the sweet-natured jockette Angel of Tarzana; and the live-wire would-be gangsta Elmer - while such classic Love and Rockets characters as the hard-living Doyle, the ageing but still-rocking Terry and the mysterious super-heroine Alarma pop up in the margins.

From the title, I thought this Love & Rockets volume would be an all-Hopey extravaganza. But she disappears halfway through the book! Instead, it's middle-aged mopey Ray who takes center stage in a meandering neo-noir. What a letdown.
