Salon interviews Jaime Hernandez.

Does anyone else think that the Gabriel Garcia Marquez comparisons are getting very lazy at this point, especially when it comes to Jaime? I mean, the GGM/Beto comparisons make slightly more sense, as both are writing about odd things in small Latin American villages. But Jaime's been writing about Californian punks for twenty years - just because he and GGM both from Spanish-speaking backgrounds doesn't make their art similar or comparable. It seems like lazy and borderline racist criticism to me.
