One of the things on the trip that stuck out for me and Brandon, was almost everyone shared a key influence on the work they made. Jaime Hernandez has had an immeasurable influence on comics creators. His work in Love and Rockets continues to make waves for it’s depth in characters and storytelling. His latest collection, Love Bunglers has received an immense amount of critical praise, all very much deserved.
This is my third time talking to Jaime, and also probably my favorite interview I have done with him. This was also Brandon’s first time meeting Jaime, and he was very very excited. I don’t know if it shows in the interview, but we were very happy to have this opportunity. Thanks Jaime for coming to downtown LA and spending the afternoon with us.
This episode is brought to you by the fine folks at Robots From Tomorrow.
love hearing brandon sketch as you guys talk!
Great interview. Who’s that singing “Time Slips Away” at the end?
Was this interview conducted on ‘ the moors ‘? The dog howling in the background had me visualising An American Werewolf in London…there was that weird dog towards the end of Ghost of Hoppers…now haunting the interview…creepy.
