Must-Buy Book of the Week -- There's no question that if you only buy one book this week, the Palomar hardcover by Gilbert Hernandez is it.

This massive collection is basically Gilbert's contribution to Love and Rockets as it should be seen, so if you've heard about how L&R is one of the greatest comics ever (true), but have never given it a look, this is your chance to see why readers and critics have universally praised the title.

Fantagraphics says "For the first time ever, a single-volume collection of Gilbert Hernandez’s acclaimed 'Heartbreak Soup' stories from Love & Rockets — the very stories that built his reputation as a giant in the field. 500 pages, in a deluxe hardcover edition, presenting an epic narrative for the ages. Palomar is the mythical Central American town where these stories take place, and the stories weave in and out of its entire population, crafting an intricate tapestry of not only Latin American but also human experience. This body of work has been hailed by Time magazine and The Nation as a landmark not only for comics, but for 20th Century literature, as well."
