When Sleepless first came out, I was so excited that I subscribed to issues at my local comic shop. We covered the first issue back then, but since the series is now complete with two volumes, it's time for a full review. Everything I loved in that first issue continued throughout the series, so let's talk a bit about what made Sleepless an excellent romance/adventure comic.

Review: Shout Out Anthology

If you need a Pride read, make it this truly excellent anthology of queer comics. If you want lovingly-rendered queer comics at any time of the year, this is a great read. On the longer side at 208 pages, this book is rated YA for some violence (warriors, not queer-hatred). The cast of creators is stellar, from voices you'll recognize to new talent you'll love.

Review: Super Fun Sexy Times, by Meredith McClaren

Super Fun Sexy Times is a charming, sexy collection of five sci-fi erotica stories. They're pretty weird, very queer, and full of superheroes. The artwork is spare and has a muted color palette, allowing you to sort of fill in the details yourself. It's not a hyper-realistic style, which is totally fine because there are aliens.

Review: Croquette & Empanada - A Love Story

Do you remember when Amy reviewed Little Moments of Love? This book is like that. Instead of being a romance, it's composed of little snapshots from the life of these two individuals, represented as a croquette and an empanada. They're very cute and often funny, but this isn't really a romance.

Review & Kickstarter Notice: I Am Hexed, Issue 1 & 2

I Am Hexed is a fantasy comic that takes current political issues and tranposes them onto a group of marginalized individuals: witches. The main character is a dapper queer woman who has a bit of a mystery to solve and, of course, a bunch of hell to raise. I adored this first issue (which I received from the creator for review) and immediately backed the Kickstarter for Issue #2.

Review: Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me

This book is not a romance, as you might have guessed from the title. It is, however, one of those coming of age stories that really spoke to me. The story covers a lot of territory, but there are two main themes: toxic romantic relationships and friendship.

This is a very short review of a very long book that everyone who likes queer romance or space operas should read.

Review: Bloom, by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau

Bloom is the perfect read for a lazy Sunday, a trip to the beach, or anytime you need a gentle hug of a book. It is also light on the romance and a bit frustrating.

If you read our review of the first volume, you can probably guess at how eagerly I've been anticipating this second installment. I won't go too much into the overarching plot in this review, so if you want to know about the vampires and how the main couple met, go check that first review out.

This comic is a solid C grade from me, taking the average of a lot of bits I absolutely loved and several that I would like to remove entirely.
