Jaime Hernandez is the master of gesture and body language, as this early Locas story clearly demonstrates. Members of the Comics Workbook Roller Derby team copied this story during our weekly practice, trying to get those gestures down while experimenting with new artistic and storytelling techniques. Each woman who played drew one page of this short story.

Locas Starring Hopey
Comics Workbook Roller Derby is the world’s only all-female, cartoonist-operated “roller derby of the mind” league. The league is comprised of strong, diverse, and independent women from the international comics community.
Our derby borrows the dedication, competition, and teamwork we see in professional roller derby and applies these same mental practices to improve our comic and storytelling skills at a whiplash pace!
CWRD is committed to fostering serious artistic growth, developing amateur cartoonists for a competitive profession, and promoting the mental – and physical – strength and independent spirit of female cartoonists. Plus we have a lot of fun!
