    I wanted to love this a lot, but I ended up feeling pretty lackluster about this title. The plot concept was really cute, I loved the art, I loved the world-building, and I liked the characters. The plot execution left something to be desired. There were weird jumps in the narrative th...

    Cool graphic novel about magical creatures. I really like the artwork. Julie, Selena and Chet try to fight a fearsome magician who has the ability to transform the magical beings into humans. Cute story with funny characters. Access to review copy provided by the publisher. ...

    I love the fun and fluffy art of the series, which contains a kind of a hipster Portland (in a good way) queer magical creature cast, and a positive message about not giving up the weirdness that is a part of you. I didn't love the interludes of the mystery-solving triplets, though, an...

    I'm on the fence with this one. Art and world are fantastic, the plot has potential, but there's something off about the whole thing. Full review to come. ...

    Well that was gay! ? Picked this up completely at random because of the lovely colors and the cute cover. Very pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the story. The characters are great and I could totally "get" who each one was in just a few panels. Trigger warning: a centa...

    Moonstruck is cute. The story takes place in a magical version of the real world where centaurs, werewolves, witches, and oracles are commonplace and the extraordinary is ordinary. The main character is Julie, a werewolf barista, who has recently gotten a girlfriend and lacks self conf...

    NOT related to This Moonstruck is super-duper absolutely squeetastically adorbs. SO much cute! It stars a low-self-esteemed, overly-apologetic, floofy werewolf barista , Julie, who begins by mooooning over her new crush, Serena. Her BFF (pictured above), Chet, is a fello...

    This was adorable. Julie and Serena are delightful, Chet is a joy, and the art is downright beautiful. Even the secondary characters are great! Cass is a particular favorite. That being said, after about Issue 3 the plot gets very confusing, and that's never cleared up. I'm really n...

    This was a totally adorable comic, and I definitely can't wait for the next volume! So this book is filled with fantasy creatures of all sorts. Our main characters are two werewolves (who have just started dating), a centaur, and a seer. When three of them go to a magic show, the ce...

    this was so adorable!! really the only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me was because i thought the main conflict wrapped up a little bit too easily there at the end but it more than makes up for it in sheer adorableness and hilarity. also the art and character designs are absolutely...

    I wanted to like this comic more than I did. Love the artwork and the personalities of the characters. Love the diverse representation. The plot/story is simple and not really that exciting. I wanted to love it, and I just thought it was OK. It's cute and funny at parts, and the art an...

    Five stars for adorable art styles & 3 stars for a bit of a rocky story with potential. First off the art is. so. frickin. cute! Slightly dreamy with interesting, diverse characters (lesbian werewolf girls, trans centaur cutie, vampire emo douches, medusa with rage issues, the list...

    Amazing queer cast that showcases how you can be inclusive without having to spotlight everything about people, they're just people. The artwork was super adorable and lends a good vibe as to why you'd fall for this ridiculous and wonderful characters. I look forward to seeing how the ...

    Werewolves, sweet cute romance, a hilarious centaur friend, magicians, drama, and more! This book will pull you in and not spit you out until the end. So I have been meaning to read this book for ages, the cover was what pulled me in. These girls looked adorable and cute together an...

    The broader setting of the story has a lot of potential. There's quite a pantheon going on in this town, everything from werewolves to centaurs to Medusa creatures and more. There were more that I didn't quite recognize, some I did but couldn't remember the name for, and none of it's w...

    I really loved this story for it's world and characters. I've been itching for something sweet with substance and a little magic. This definitely fit! The art was fantastic - very similar to Rebecca Sugar's style and it fit the story and characters so well. The twist on monsters and cr...

    I had high hopes for Moonstruck, a fantasy story centered around two lady werewolves falling in love and their gender fluid centaur friend. Unfortunately, a cute premise, adorable illustrations and a cameo from the Babadook could not make up for a disjointed plot, bad storytelling, an ...

    incredibly cute art and amazing diversity but the story just didn't work for me. it made me feel like I missed some panels, making it super confusing and weird to read. there were also some side plots I didn't see the point of... not amazing but still a fun read ...

    Trigger warnings for the use of slurs - against a fictional race, however - dysphoria and mild violence. If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times before but I simply adore pastel fantasy worlds. You know the ones that have witches drinking their potions from Starbucks...

    This was so much fun and so adorable! The artwork is exceptionally pretty! I like the arc of the volume, exciting adventure to help a friend. There was also a story-inside-story about three sisters, which was rather cute. The main character is Julie, she's fat Latinx werewolf, who's...

    "Can you really call yourself a hero if you do things that hurt the people you care about?" This was one of my most anticipated comics and I gotta say... I'm disappointed. The art style and color palette was GORGEOUS but the plot and writing was not the best. BUT we did get lesbi...

    I liked it. The art is fantastic, the colors are amazing. The story had some very good and relatable parts, but there was a lot in a short time. And the resolution was rushed and didn't make a lot of sense. I definitely felt connections to the characters and will most likely continue r...
