    OMG THIS IS THE CUTEST & MOST HILARIOUS & ALSO THE SOFTEST & PUREST & MOST LOVELY THING I EVER SEEN WITH MY OWN TWO GAY EYES

    If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times before but I simply adore pastel fantasy worlds: the aus that blend modern technology with traditional mythology. You know the ones that have witches drinking their potions from Starbucks thermos and vampires that cannot take selfies? You can imagine my excitement the moment I learned Moonstruck existed. Lesbian werewolves in a pastel uf coffee shop AU? A dream come true! From the very first...

    Yes, yes, yes, yes! This is the LGBTQIA+ comic book of your dreams (I promise) - bring on volume two!

    3.5 STARSI thought this was fun and the storyline was unique and interesting, but I didn't really love any of the characters and was honestly annoyed with pretty much all of them at some point. Especially because trivial things were fought about and it just made me roll my eyes a lot. It felt like this maybe should have been targeted towards a younger audience.

    Werewolves, sweet cute romance, a hilarious centaur friend, magicians, drama, and more! This book will pull you in and not spit you out until the end.So I have been meaning to read this book for ages, the cover was what pulled me in. These girls looked adorable and cute together and I wanted to see them get together/go on dates/etc.But this book is so much more than just cute dates and cute romance. There is some drama and tension when an evil ma...

    This was such a cute, diverse, and beautifully drawn graphic novel with centaurs, werewolves, witches, seers, vampires, and more & I loved it. It wasn't perfect, there were a lot of insecurities that never got addressed but all the same, it was adorable and I loved it.

    This one reminds me of the webcomics I used to read when I was a bit younger. The ones that I would turn to whenever I would feel anxious about something – so I could take my mind off of the stressful element – and whenever I needed cuteness in my life.Because those are the kinds of stories that are going to make my day better. This comic definitely uplifted my mood and entertained me. It’s cute in such a way that makes you forget there is ...

    I wanted to love this so much and I did like it, I just didn’t love it. Let’s start with the good • Julie and Selena are both qpoc and fat. Both characters are also lesbians. • The fat rep was so well done. The characters were drawn beautifully!! • It’s ownvoices for queer rep.• Julie’s best friend, Chet, is non-binary and a centaur!!! • Fantasy= Monsters, ghost some supernatural side characters.• It made me smile so much!! ...

    This graphic novel is utterly adorable and an awful lot of fun. It's set in a college town full of happily coexisting magical creatures, with romantic subplots and a team-of-friends quest, I really, really enjoyed it. I also loved the larger message about not quashing parts of yourself (or anyone else!) to be "normal."The writing was fun and the artwork was super-cute, but for some reason, there were a couple of key scenes in the second half wher...

    4 stars for a charmingly witty and subversive title. The cartoony art sparkles and complements the story, and the cast is wonderfully diverse and inclusive.

    2.75This felt very rushed. I really think it could have been so much better if it was longer and more fleshed out. Parts were confusing like...what happened. Where did the butt go? What is that guys backstory? What did Anderson say? And there are so many unresolved issues with the main f/f couple, which granted I wouldn't expect all that to be cleared up in just one volume, so hopefully that gets more fleshed out later.Just issues here and there....

    "Can you really call yourself a hero if you do things that hurt the people you care about?" This was one of my most anticipated comics and I gotta say... I'm disappointed. The art style and color palette was GORGEOUS but the plot and writing was not the best. BUT we did get lesbians and a non binary character so I would definitely recommend it in terms of diversity!! I was just super confused as to what was going on and I don't think I'll contin...

    I'm on the fence with this one. Art and world are fantastic, the plot has potential, but there's something off about the whole thing. Full review to come.

    Why You Might Bump This Up On Your TBR:Seeing fat protagonists in graphic novels gives me life, so I loved that part of this. It's extremely queer friendly with an f/f couple at the forefront and a (very lovable!) genderfluid (if I read that correctly) best friend character, among others. The art style, plot progression, setting, world, characters, and queer-inclusive messages were all working for me.Why You Might Bump This Down On Your TBR:In th...

    The art here is wonderful and there's some fun ideas within the story. However despite a good beginning the pacing felt disjointed and the story felt rushed. It couldn't adequately focus on either of the central conflicts so both felt underdeveloped.

    Rating 3.5 - I really did adore this graphic novel, there were a couple reasons I didn't LOVE it and I'll get into those in my review later. The artwork is fantastic, the characters are wonderful and there is lots of great representation. RTC

    This was such a cute and inclusive graphic novel/comic, I'm excited to read the next instalment in this story, but know that I have a long time to wait! oh dear

    Aggressively cute, lovable characters, super fun dialogue, fantastic art, plot needs some help (please explain... the whole thing, thanks).

    This was so much fun and so adorable! The artwork is exceptionally pretty! I like the arc of the volume, exciting adventure to help a friend. There was also a story-inside-story about three sisters, which was rather cute.The main character is Julie, she's fat Latinx werewolf, who's working in a cafe with her best friend Chet. Chet is centaur and they are super adorable. Julie went on one date with lovely black werewolf Selena, but when they go on...

    This is a beautifully-illustrated and clever world that's still finding its feet narratively. I love the idea of magical creatures living cute 21st century urban lives, and I adore the way the story looks. All the right ingredients are here - I'm looking forward to seeing where this story goes in future. (10+)*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only.

    This was a bit of a letdown. I was hoping for a cute and quick read, but it just felt like this comic was trying too hard to be quirky. There was also so much going on that the story felt very disjointed and I didn't really care for any of the characters. The art was cute, and I'm sure some people will enjoy this, but I personally won't be picking up the next volume.

    What an adorable little series! Featuring a lesbian werewolf couple and a non-binary centaur <3 <3 I don't think I can contain all the hearts and love I feel for this series. I can't wait to read more

    Five stars for adorable art styles & 3 stars for a bit of a rocky story with potential. First off the art is. so. frickin. cute! Slightly dreamy with interesting, diverse characters (lesbian werewolf girls, trans centaur cutie, vampire emo douches, medusa with rage issues, the list goes on and on <3) that each have their own personality (visually and textually) without it feeling like someone's checking diversity traits off of a list. I quite lik...

    Moonstruck is cute. The story takes place in a magical version of the real world where centaurs, werewolves, witches, and oracles are commonplace and the extraordinary is ordinary. The main character is Julie, a werewolf barista, who has recently gotten a girlfriend and lacks self confidence. She and her friends get mixed up in a plot to steal magic from creatures.While I LOVE Julie's supporting cast, especially her best centaur friend. Julie her...

    I liked it. The art is fantastic, the colors are amazing. The story had some very good and relatable parts, but there was a lot in a short time. And the resolution was rushed and didn't make a lot of sense. I definitely felt connections to the characters and will most likely continue reading.
