Panel from “Love and Rockets Library: Luba and Her Family” by Gilbert Hernandez
Imagine if the Bad Brains had continued to release singles, EPs, and full length records that were as good as “Pay To Cum” or the ROIR tape every year for the last 30 years. For the past 6 or 7 years they had stuck to one full length a year (released by Reach Out International Records - who in this alternate timeline are the preeminent punk record label of today). But they still had anthologies come out that collected all their singles that made that stuff easier to track down for people who had only recently discovered them.
People would have arguments about what records they liked best, some people thinking their best work was behind them, quite a few would even argue persuasively that the more recent output was the best work.
Thats what the Hernandez brothers are to comics.
