In a futuristic society, five years after the development of a successful AIDS vaccine, a number of subcultures have arisen centered around sexual attraction to various categories of nonhumans. Vegisexuals, zoosexuals, and mineralsexuals all have their own cultural viewpoints and agendas, with some being more mainstream than others. The narrator of the story, Officer Jok, even gets mocked by other law-enforcers when he appears to be harboring heterosexual feelings toward a human female. Cultural clashes ensue providing a backdrop against which Officer Jok struggles as he realizes his own feelings pull him toward crossing the elaborate but strictly-defined status quo he is supposed to protect.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012, Love and Rockets is finally being digitally released in its most accessible form yet: As a series of compact, thick, affordable, mass-market volumes that present the whole story in perfect chronological order. This volume collects the first half of Gilbert Hernandez's acclaimed magical-realist tales of "Palomar," the small Central American town, beginning with the groundbreaking "Sopa de Gran Pena" (which introduces most of his main cast of characters as children, plus the imposing newcomer Luba), and continuing on through such modern-day classics as "Ecce Homo," "Act of Contrition," "Duck Feet," and the great love story "For the Love of Carmen.""The Love and Rockets Vol. 1 reprints may be my favorite publishing project of the last five years, and there are a lot of fine projects going on... the smaller, bargain-priced volumes [are] the perfect vehicle for that material, the best comics series of all time." -- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter.

Similarly, because of the Daleks being licensed to appear here and in TV21's Dalek Chronicles, the Doctor was initially unable to encounter them either in his weekly TV Comic strip or the World Distributors Doctor Who Annuals; it was only after the Daleks' solo ventures came to an end that they would menace the Time Lord in comics...
