Are you see me through
The stolen glances, broken threads The visions looming in our heads The years spent running parallel To everything that might've been. Oh, if he really does exist Why did he desert me In my hour of need I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally. Then in nineteen fifteen my country said Son It's time to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be done So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun And they sent me away to the war. And through it all she offers me protection A lot of love and affection Whether I'm right or wrong. Since you went away the days grow long And soon I'll hear old winter song But i miss you most of all my darling When autumn leaves start to fall. And I wish I, wish I knew the right words To make you feel better, walk out of this place Defeat them in your secret battle Show them you can be your own man again.

Threaded throughout are flashbacks to , during the formative stages in their lifelong relationship, as the perceived invincibility of youth is juxtaposed against all of the love, heartbreak, and self-awareness that comes with lives actually lived.

Imagine if a baseball player hit a homerun every time he came up to bat. Imagine a film director whose entire filmography was ranked above 9. For me, that is what Jaime Hernandez is to comics.
I cannot know what this book is like to someone who has not read and re-read everything else Jaime Hernandez has put out, but I do remember what it was like the first time I read him. It was Love and Rockets volume 2, 7 which picks up in the middle of a story. I wasn't sure what was going on but I was interested as hell to find out. And it sure was beautiful. This book does not pick up in the middle of a story, as it contains all the chapters that make a complete book.
But the book itself is obviously part of a larger whole. If you like comics like I do, and have never read Love and Rockets, I don't see this as a bad starting point.
There is no bad way to start reading Love and Rockets. If you have already read Love and Rockets before, this book is that much more rewarding. It is a perfect example of why Jaime's stories are so absolutely re-readable and re-re-readable.
It is impossible for me to overstate how great this is. I enjoyed the Hoppers reunion of almost all the old punks from "Love and Rockets" early days. It was fun to see all our favorite characters grown up and changed, but not all that much really.
I feel I must have missed something somewhere how did Ray get his scar? Where is Maggie working? A sprawling masterpiece that shows relationships over time, simply one of the best comics the medium has ever produced.
I'd started reading this when it began in New Stories and the first couple issues of Love and Rockets, vol. IV, but skipped ahead to this collection. What surprised me were the flashbacks to and , which didn't appear in those first few issues and must have been edited in earlier for the book. The flashbacks were the most elliptical part of the story, but they grew on me. It's always cool how much of Jaime's stories require reading between the lines just to grasp what's happening.
There's usually something there to pick up on regardless of your background, but the context often has to be pieced together as you go.
The story isn't quite what I expected. It's certainly a meditation on aging, but the drama doesn't quite hinge on that subject. To some degree, I simply came away with a more nuanced understanding of Maggie's relationships. Around the edges, there were also small but meaningful developments in her life with Ray that were very satisfying.
Jaime excels here in depicting the ambiguity that people feel about reunions and the mostly humdrum aspects mixed with occasional small bursts of excitement. I particularly liked Izzy's droll contributions to the post-show diner gathering. The story can be dry at times, but there are several points of climax, the biggest occurring near the end and involving a sort of random hostility we can never quite anticipate from strangers or people outside our circles possibly calling back to the book's title.
The scenes with Del lingered in my mind after the book was finished: The idea that kids and all people need places to connect, and drug houses sometimes become those places, yet Maggie and Hopey's interest is always music, which makes Del nothing but a convenient enabler or background character in their lives.
His arc felt particularly sad. He kind of gets used, and though he's a user himself, he has enough of a conscience to try to protect Maggie from dangerous situations. Just mentioning this in case anyone else had that feeling. It sometimes feels like the brothers are borrowing from each other's stories, though it may just be pure coincidence. One person found this helpful. Been reading Love and rockets since it first came out but am missing a lot from the last few years as my income has declined and there are less reasons to go to the local comic book shop.
Unlike a lot of the prior material some i read in volumes- most I read in the original comics I just found this volume to be boring. Maybe it is because I am probably older than Maggie or Hopey and what they are doing usually fails as you age. But basically I didn't feel there was much of story and even less of an ending. As someone who was in a punk band as a kid, it should have resonated. But it was like hanging out with a bunch of old losers I outgrew for 2 days.

It's nowhere near as explosively dramatic as previous chapters. It's nuanced, and that comes as a welcome change in pace and depth.
The artwork is character driven as usual, but without typical exploration or heavy detailing of the situational settings. This is fine, but I always enjoy JH's backgrounds and I noticed they weren't It's still as wonderful as ever.

Hillsong - Through It All Lyrics
Did you see me coming? Was I that obvious? For all of a sudden there were just two of us You don't have to be in "Who's Who" to know what's what You don't have to be a high-flyer to catch your slot The night we met was cold and wet I needed a drink or two I saw you standing there and I knew I'd love to be loved by you Did you see me coming?
His characters, almost all of who are first-generation Indian Americans, subvert our expectations that they will sit quietly by. We meet two brothers caught in an elaborate web of envy and loathing; a young gay man who becomes involved with an older man whose secret he could never guess; three women who almost gleefully throw off the pleasant agreeability society asks of them; and, in the final pair of linked stories, a young couple struggling against the devastating force of community gossip. If You See Me, Don't Say Hi examines the collisions of old world and new world, small town and big city, traditional beliefs like arranged marriage and modern rituals like Facebook stalking. This is a valid description of the plight faced by the Indian as well as all immigrants in the US while trying to fit in with the mainstream kids And being embarrassed by the close knit Indian A nicely turned collection focusing sharply on the Indian-American experience, especially on characters on the verge of mainstream success.
