Reviews Bingo Love

  • Carol Tilley
    Is it perfect? Nope. It's got a big heart though and that's all that matters.

    The art is the best thing about this book--fluid, colorful, bold, expressive. The writing, I thought, could have used some more work; the dialogue is painfully stilted in places, and the strong opening frame story never closes, leaving the reader awkwardly hanging. But I'm glad the story exists in the world.

  • Robert S Rodgers
    I loved it. The story is great and heartwarming. The art is fantastic!Romance normally isn't my thing, but I've followed Tee for years and wanted to support her. I'm glad I did.

    I saw the Kickstarter for this book because one of the artists did the cover to my own book I Am Magical: magnifiqueNOIR Book 1 I knew I had to back it. The art is amazing, and I love the fact that one of the leads (Hazel) is dark skin, plus size, and treated as someone to be sought after. I love that the story tells the story from the 60s, to today, and finally, to the future. We get to see Hazel and Mari's love for each other and how it went fr...

    I backed this twice (one for me and one for my sis) on Kickstarter and just finished reading the PDF. When I first heard about this graphic novel on Twitter I knew that I wanted to get a copy. First of all the artwork caught my eye. Secondly the premise sounded great and intriguing. And finally because bingo is part of my childhood I played it first at church and then later on as a young adult at synagogue.The writing is awesome. Ms. Franklin doe...

    "A queer black love story" was the initial pitch I saw for this, the full-length writing debut of Tee Franklin, who at the time I only knew as the creator of Black Comics Month. Full disclosure: I'm a 40 year old straight white guy from the South, which means I am certainly NOT this book's target audience. But I AM a fan of Jenn St-Onge's art, and the teaser images she'd posted on Twitter were enough to make me check out the book on Kickstarter. ...

    This is really charming and pretty much exactly what it says it is - two women of color who meet as teenagers are forcibly separated, they meet again when they're older and get together then. This is a love story we don't get to see often even though there are a lot of women who have kids and then partner with other women, and love stories between two women of color are perhaps even more rare - to get both at once is a delight.This gets a four ra...

    I saw a GoFundMe post for this comic book earlier this year and the art is adorable, the plot line hooked me, and I was so excited to get my copy of this book! I’m torn because on one hand, I love representation and the love story between Hazel and Mari, and the fact the writer took an approach that people had to settle for a fake happiness and how families can be torn apart when you realize they were built on a facade. But there’s a huge pac...
