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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello there, my lovely Love in Panels reader! My name is Zora Gilbert, and I would like to preach to your wonderful choir. I’m one of the editors of Dates! An Anthology of Queer Historical Fiction (Volume 3 now on Kickstarter!), which means I’ve been living and breathing queer comics in various forms for the time it takes to self-publish three volumes of an anthology while being a young adult with a day job, which it turns out is about four years (and, of course, for some time before that, but that’s harder to count).

In one sentence: This book should be in every library, school, and Human Resources office. If you care about creating an inclusive space for your students, employees, and/or customers but don't know where to start with understanding all of the terms and definitions used by the queer community, this is the book for you. It is exactly what it says on the cover.

Sometimes Comixology tags things as romance and I get the idea that I should buy them. And then they sit on my iPad for a year. And then when I finally read the thing... I wonder why I did.
