Bingo Love Reviews

    I saw the Kickstarter for this book because one of the artists did the cover to my own book

    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.

    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 from being seen as taboo to more acceptable, not just through the eyes of the world, but the eyes of those closest to them.

    I know some people will look at this story and say that it's been told before, and to that end, yes, it has, but it hasn't been told in this way before. We rarely get to see queer women of color front and center, in love, and growing old together. This is the queer story I've been looking for, one that has characters who represent me and go through the fears I felt (and still feel) as a queer woman of color. If you're someone who talks the "Representation Matters" talk then this needs to be on your shelf. These are women who don't often have stories like this told about them, yet they exist in our world. We need more black women who are allowed to love and be loved. And the twist at the end? So powerful, and so painfully real.

    This book shows a range of emotion with women of color. Hazel and Mari are allowed to be strong, are allowed to break, are allowed to cry, are allowed to love, they're allowed to be human and it's so refreshing to see. I'm so glad I backed this, and I hope to see more from this author and these artists.

    ADORABLE BOOK!

    really loved this. beautiful story and amazing art. too cute to handle

  • Carol Tilley

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

  • Laura (bbliophile)

    This was so good and cute but also so heart-wrenching. I definitely didn't expect to cry this much while reading it.

  • Kenny

    A truly beautiful love story of ageless love.

  • Thomas Maluck

    Reviews forthcoming on No Flying No Tights and The Secret Stacks (

    ), but rest assured this was GOOD.

  • Miche

    Look, this isn't the perfect book but it is a beautiful story. The graphic novel industry is starving for stories like this and it is sO refreshing to find one! The artwork is lovely and very comfortable to sit with for a long read. The main characters, Elle and Mari, are beautiful, strong, and bold women -- easy to admire. And it was a special privilege to follow Elle through her entire life and not just one moment. 10/10 would recommend.

    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.

  • Brian Keene

    The art is delightful and charming, and the colors add a real vibrancy. The plot and characters are interesting, and a refreshing change from the fantastical genre elements that dominate comics these days. Unfortunately, the writing doesn't quite achieve the intent, with stilted dialogue (in some places) that lessens the impact.
