Marble Season in the Miami Herald

Superheroes and terrific tales

This lovely and evocative story is billed as semi-autobiographical. I’m sure it is. Most comic-collecting kids can still feel the lingering pain inflicted by a parent who casually tossed our prized collections. The accompanying sibling tensions and summer idylls add texture and nuance to the memories. Hernandez’s clean and artfully simple illustrations belie the depth of adolescent angst and yearning portrayed in this excellent and all-too-true reminiscence.
