What have I done? (comics)

In my ongoing frivolous spending with Fantagraphics theme, I ordered the complete “Love and Rockets” series. This is a comic that I started reading in high school. I didn’t really get it back then, but I really liked the art and I could tell that there was something big going on. It has intrigued me ever since. After reading a zillion reviews saying that the series is a landmark achievement blah blah blah and seeing it on sale, I broke down and ordered it. Whoa…

I didn’t realize that the series had gone on for close to 20 years. That’s 7 volumes at 270+pages, that’s a lot of comics… Still, at only 68 bucks, it was a steal. I’ve started the first volume and I’m enjoying it quite a bit. It’s my understanding that it gets serious later on. Right now, it’s a lot of fun. Will keep folks updated if it’s worthwhile…
