Today we're talking about GLITTER KISS, a  graphic novel in which a publicly maligned girl turns the jerks at school into girls for a day so that they can experience the patriarchy for themselves. It's fun and feisty at the same time.

Clueless gets the graphic novel treatment! I really loved spending some time with Cher, Dionne, and Tai. If you need a break from the 2017 hellscape, this is a fresh and fun choice.

I reached the end of a fantasy romance comic and... no HEA. You can probably imagine my disappointment. But I still liked it? This is a long review, so enjoy these screenshots before you read.

Today we bring you a tale of swashbuckling adventure, mystery, and romance, set in 17th century Europe.

Windrose seems to be going for a slow burn romance between two of the main characters, and I dig it. Leon loves Angeline but she's falling for Danielle. Danielle feels... ? We don't know! There was an almost kiss, but with all the kidnapping and escaping and thievery and lying... who knows what's next?!

If you answered A or C, you might like Lucy Knisley's graphic memoir, SOMETHING NEW, TALES FROM A MAKESHIFT BRIDE. (I keep typing that as "makeshirt," which is not something that happens in this book.)

We took a break from playing Dream Daddy to read the first issue of Moonstruck, a new paranormal coffeeshop romance comic from Grace Ellis and Shae Beagle. It's really cute and fun and romancey. It'll make your day better.
