The original ''Love And Rockets'' ran for fifty issues before a hiatus began in 1996, during which the brothers worked on other projects mainly spun-off from their ongoing plots. A "Volume 2" series began in 2001 and ran for twenty issues until 2007. In 2008, Los Bros bowed to the move from individual issues to larger bound volumes as the primary medium for art comics, and began an annual "Love and Rockets: New Stories" series in book format.

* ArtShift: Apart from the isolated one in the first issue (see above under ArtEvolution), the major instance throughout "Locas" occurs whenever there are scenes centering on very young children and the adults who interact with them. Jaime typically draws these sequences in a minimalist, gag-a-day NewspaperComic style. The major exception to this is "Browntown," which features a realistic style throughout, suiting the story's dark and ultimately [[{{Tragedy}} tragic]] tone.

* RecursiveCanon: A very complicated set of examples. Fritz stars in a gangster film Very Loosely Based on a True Story about the life of her own mother Maria, causing a rift between herself and her sister Luba.

He took this to even greater Mind Screw dimensions with his serial ''Speak of the Devil'', which has the same title as one of Fritz's in-universe films but, according to Word of God, is the story of the "real" in-universe events that the film was loosely based on.
