Indie Comics Reboot: ‘Love and Rockets’ #1 as a Femme Fatale Supergroup [Original Art]
Relaunching comic books with new #1 issues and alternate takes on familiar characters is nothing new in the world of super-hero comics, with the ongoing DC Comics relaunch as the latest and greatest example. Rebooting without the baggage of old stories can add new life to characters — or completely misinterpret them in very fundamental ways.
When a deadly alien armada launched its assault on Earth by infecting the city of Hopperpolis with a techno-virus engineered to make every man on Earth a mindless slave, there was just one thing they didn’t count on: The Locas, a deadly, all-female hit squad of insane super-criminals who escape from their high-security mental hospital with one objective: kick some extraterrestrial ass. Lead by the voluptuous, hammer-wielding Luba, and armed with the massive rocket arsenal of sexy super-mechanic Mad Maggie along with her lesbian lover Hopey and bombshell explosives expert Penny Century, these femme fatales have a mad lust for mass destruction and are ready for action, both on and off the battlefield. Watch out boys — things are about to get “loca”!
