Luba: Three Daughters

Luba: Three Daughters is the final book in Gilbert Hernandez’s post-Palomar trilogy (following Luba In America and Luba: The Book of Ofelia), a body of work comparable in comics only to Hernandez’s own Palomar in terms of scope and ambition.

 

It continues the story of matriarch Luba and her extended family’s travails in the United States after her Central American hometown is destroyed at the end of the Palomar. Luba: Three Daughters focuses on Luba and her two sisters, Fritz and Petra, as Hernandez continues to use his characters to explore the complex relationships that form between family and how the experiences and actions of one generation influence the next.

 

Hernandez is renowned for his female characters; he intersperses his main narrative with “The Kid Stuff Kids,” a series of light-hearted and playful one-pagers starring the young children of the three sisters, richly juxtaposed against the complex family drama at work in Three Daughters.

 

Hernandez’s mix of Latino soap opera, magic realist touches and rich naturalism in the service of stories that speak to the changes that come with age and experience are unparalleled in comics, and feature the most vivid, memorable and honestly depicted characters in comics.
