“Love and rockets” again on horseback: “We have influenced a bunch of artists”

The cult comic strip about California punks next month will return to newsstands and talk about heroes looking back on their own lives. One of the leading comic book industry magazines, Previews, called it “2016 Comic Book Event.” The new issue of Love and Rockets (Love and Rockets, Vol. IV No. 1), dated July 2016, but actually only available for sale on September 28, does not include any plastic figures of super-soldiers.

The script by Matthew Michael Carnahan on the bestselling book by Christopher MacDougle “Born to Run” (Born to Run) attracted Matthew McConaughey. The actor is in talks with producers about the lead role.

Unlike the tarahumara, Chris constantly received physical injuries. He went to the Copper Canyon to find out the secret of the swift Indians. McDougle’s book Continue reading
