  • Gilbert Hernandez A Crime Thriller Doubles As An Adaptation-Style Meta-Love And Rockets Story A woman comes to the U.S. from Latin America to escape her shady past, only to fall into a new shady life.

    After a go at the adult entertainment business, Maria marries a drug lord and her dangerous past is nothing compared to her new life in America. The drug lord’s son, Gorgo, secretly falls in love with her and he watches over her like a guardian angel. Danger and corruption (and of course sex) drive the first half of this love story. Long-time Love and Rockets readers will find the storyline familiar… and that’s because, in an Adaptation-style meta twist, Maria M. is actually the B-movie film adaptation of the life story of Luba’s mother Maria, as previously seen in its ‘real’ version in the classic graphic novel Poison River (available in the Beyond Palomar collection) - starring Maria’s own daughter playing her own mother. Confused? Don’t be! Maria M. will work perfectly on its own terms as the kind of violent, sexy pulp tale that Gilbert Hernandez has proven so adept at these past several years, and the ‘source material’ for the story will just provide an extra layer of delight for the cognoscenti. Part two of Maria M. will be released in 2014.
