Will Ares, a successful divorce lawyer, find himself working alongside Gigi Averelle, a wedding planner, when their respective clients — movie producer Evans Beatty and Hollywood starlet Carrie Cartwright — plan to marry. As Beatty's ex-wives come out of the woodwork to cause mayhem, Gigi and Will make a bet — Gigi agrees to go on a date with Will if Evans and Carrie really do go through with the wedding. Should they break up, however, Will must reveal, in a full-page newspaper ad, how many marriages he's ruined. Is Will a fool for love, or is this the start of a beautiful relationship
The story of Bonnie N. Collide, a roller-girl, and the adventures she has at a humdrum day job. Bonnie’s inability to separate her vibrant roller derby life from her normal working life means she gets to gleefully crash from one aspect of her life into another, seamlessly, and using the same amount of gusto. Oh, and one of her coworkers is a werewolf named Herb.
Bonnie N. Collide is a strip-based romantic comedy, full of roller derby and office hijinks. Bonnie is wonderfully wacky, and Stuart plays a charmingly awkward straight man to balance her off-the-wall antics. Their romance is awkward and slow to develop, but charming, and the cast of secondary characters (including a werewolf?) adds depth and humor to what would otherwise be a very sitcom-y strip. A nice light comic to read after a hard day.
A Supervillain Lesbian Love Story
Bianca Crowley has spent her whole life pretending to be straight, because that’s what her mother and society expect of the beautiful redhead. But when she meets the out and proud Gamer Girl - who already has the kickass costume and awesome super-powers - Bianca finally finds an outlet for the feelings she’s been suppressing her entire life.
Surfing the current wave of popular, female-focused comics — like Sex Criminals, Captain Marvel, and Batgirl — this is a mature love story with all the sex, hijinks, broken hearts and inappropriate cell phone pics that entails.
Gamer Girl & Vixen is a comic book series created and written by Kristi McDowell and Sean Ian Mills, with art by Gemma Moody and lettering by Taylor Esposito. The series will appeal to fans with a soft spot for well-rounded villains, and those looking for more lighthearted adventure and romance in their comics.
The goal of this project is to create a fun and exciting series that hooks into the growing trend of brighter, friendlier comics. The day of the grim, male action hero is over. Fandom is demanding more female characters and creators, and Gamer Girl & Vixen is the perfect new franchise to fill that niche.
Bear meets girl.
Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she’s ever had! He’s considerate, he’s sweet, he takes care of her. But he’s a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?
I'll admit, when I first heard about MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR, my romance-reviewer brain went straight to "werebear." I was 100% expecting a man who turns into a bear on occasion. Maybe a rather hirsute man who was large and soft like a bear. Well, dear reader, I was selling this book short. The heroine, Nora, does indeed have a boyfriend and he is indeed a bear.
The bear, who never has a human name, is somewhere between 400 and 500 pounds, depending on proximity to hibernation. He and Nora have a meet-terrified (not at all a meet-cute) in the woods while she's avoiding yet another awful human boyfriend. When forest fires drive the wildlife south and into LA, Nora discovers a familiar bear rummaging through her trash bins. Thus begins an unusual romance, full of broken furniture and awkward conversations.
Bear is suprisingly considerate, handy, and compassionate. While Nora's friends and family certainly don't approve of the relationship (and are rather vocal about it), the central conflict arrives with the change of seasons - hibernation. Nora's finally found the boyfriend of her dreams, but can their relationship last while he sleeps for four months? Will he forget all about her?
The book comes in at just over 160 full-color pages, full of art that's so cute you can almost forget that Nora and Bear are engaging in an inter-species romance. It is, after all, a "complete" relationship, with physical intimacy not on page but heavily implied. The book is jam-packed with jokes, from honey-beer to claw-marks on the bathtub, which helpfully shift the tone from unsavory to downright sweet. It's a story of a love that doesn't make sense to anyone else, but seems to work quite well for the couple. If you can suspend your disbelief, you'll be in for a fun, light-hearted story of joy coming from unexpected places.
Fresh off her adventures in the pages of Princeless, Raven is ready to set out on her quest for revenge against her brothers. They've stolen everything that should be hers and now she's going to get it back. But first, she needs a crew. Share the laughs, action, and adventure as Raven assembles the fearless crew of awesome ladies who will help her get her revenge.
How do I love Raven? Let me count the ways...
1) Raven herself is a badass. She's been raised to take over for her father, the Pirate King, which has given her both her title (Pirate Princess) and a whole set of physical and strategic skills that she's determined to use to regain control of her family's pirate empire. (Long story short - her brothers are jerks.)
2) Raven is a heroine with flaws. She's written as a badass (see point 1) but also as a character with some issues to work out. She's impulsive, careless of her own safety, and sometimes unwilling to consider alternatives suggested by her crew. She's in love with one of her crewmates, but can't admit her feelings to the object of her affection or to herself. It's a whole thing. Yet, for all of these "masculine" traits, Raven is unapologetically female and uses her position to lift up women of all persuasions.
3) The crew. In a hilarious and pointed bit of social commentary, Raven decides to populate her crew with only women. The men who "apply" are lecherous, dismissive, or otherwise useless. At least this way, she and her crewmates won't be subjected to harassment or worse on their journey. The crew Raven assembles is comprised of, among others, a character reminiscent of a marshmallowy Brienne of Tarth, a black chemist skilled at blowing things up, a cartographer/navigator (this is the aforementioned love interest), and a thief who kinda falls for Raven herself. Writer Jeremy Whitley plays them off each other for comedic value, but also for surprising episodes of pathos and edge-of-your-seat adventure.
4) The love story. This is a slow burn, since Raven and Ximena have a complicated history that includes a serious betrayal. At the end of Book Three, some stuff happens that finally pushes Raven to admit, out loud, that she loves Ximena. Of course, in true Raven fashion, Ximena isn't nearby and Raven is having the hell beaten out of her by another woman at the time... but it still counts. The two of them have several obstacles to overcome, but I'm really rooting for them.
Speaking of 4... Arc 4 of Raven just started, which means you have three books (or a whole bunch of issues) to catch up on. If you're a completionist, you can start with Raven's introductory arc in Princeless, which is an amazing comic of its own, just without a romantic subplot. We've passed this series along to our daughters and several friends, but I do think it's aged up a bit from the original Princeless series. (Princeless is rated "All Ages" and Raven is "9+.")
TL;DR - Raven is amazing and everyone should be reading this. If you have the slightest interest in lady pirates kicking ass and falling in love, this is the series for you.
