    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. ...

    This graphic novel is utterly adorable and an awful lot of fun. It's set in a college town full of happily coexisting magical creatures, with romantic subplots and a team-of-friends quest, I really, really enjoyed it. I also loved the larger message about not quashing parts of yourself...

    The art here is wonderful and there's some fun ideas within the story. However despite a good beginning the pacing felt disjointed and the story felt rushed. It couldn't adequately focus on either of the central conflicts so both felt underdeveloped. ...

    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...

    So this is a graphic novel that I've seen on plenty of people's channels recently and I really wanted to read and enjoy it. But sadly, I really didn't. The art was really cute and the story was fine. But it felt very surface level and I found myself wanting to skim over certain parts. ...

    I'm a little conflicted on this one. I was absolutely in love with it in the first half: the illustrations are adorable, the world is full of all kinds of magic, it begins at a coffee shop and has a cute f/f romance between two poc fat werewolves (Selena is Black and Julie is Latina). ...

    2.75 This felt very rushed. I really think it could have been so much better if it was longer and more fleshed out. Parts were confusing like...what happened. Where did the butt go? What is that guys backstory? What did Anderson say? And there are so many unresolved issues with 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...

    This was so, so cute! Lots of lovely and diverse characters (Latinx lesbian MC, side-character who uses they/them pronouns and so much more), a really adorable art style that very much fits the story and it's just a whole lot of fun. I will absolutely continue with this graphic novel s...

    Why You Might Bump This Up On Your TBR: Seeing fat protagonists in graphic novels gives me life, so I loved that part of this. It's extremely queer friendly with an f/f couple at the forefront and a (very lovable!) genderfluid (if I read that correctly) best friend character, among ot...

    Hmmm. It was just ok? I loved the art and the diversity was excellent. But the writing was all over the place, Selena and Julie annoyed me, and I wasn?t a fan of the ?book within a book.? Overall I was more bored than enthusiastic about the story. ...

    This was soooo fun, and what it lacked in patchy storytelling made up for in its incredible art and lovable characters. The main character is latina, fat, and queer, the love interest is black and queer (yes, it's f/f romance!), and the prominent side character is non-binary, queer, an...

    This one reminds me of the webcomics I used to read when I was a bit younger. The ones that I would turn to whenever I would feel anxious about something ? so I could take my mind off of the stressful element ? and whenever I needed cuteness in my life. Because those are the...

    This is a REALLY tough graphic novel for me to rate and review! ? P R O S : ? ADORABLE artwork ? so much diverse rep! POC, queer rep, fat rep, all kinds ? ? some cute pop culture references (the neopets knockoff site killed me) ? C O N S : ? mostly kind of bori...

    3.5 STARS I thought this was fun and the storyline was unique and interesting, but I didn't really love any of the characters and was honestly annoyed with pretty much all of them at some point. Especially because trivial things were fought about and it just made me roll my eyes a lot...

    If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times before but I simply adore pastel fantasy worlds: the aus that blend modern technology with traditional mythology. You know the ones that have witches drinking their potions from Starbucks thermos and vampires that cannot take self...

    4 stars for a charmingly witty and subversive title. The cartoony art sparkles and complements the story, and the cast is wonderfully diverse and inclusive. ...

    This graphic novel had a cute, pastel, Steven Universe-y art style. I really loved how diverse it was with a Latina main character, a Black love interest, a non-binary best friend. I just wish the story didn?t wrap up so quickly and I wish that the issues the couple had was spoken ab...

    What I Liked: - The Romance: I really liked the romance at this point. I thought Julie and Selena's relationship was refreshing and you could really feel the excitement of a new relationship. I also enjoyed the f/f romance representation. -The Art: The art style was really nice...

    "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 really did enjoy this one, but I didn?t love it unfortunately. The queer representation is incredible in this one. It?s just so diverse and it was so lovely to see and it had healthy fat representation, which I am all about! The story basically centers around an adorable werewolf...

    This was such a cute, diverse, and beautifully drawn graphic novel with centaurs, werewolves, witches, seers, vampires, and more & I loved it. It wasn't perfect, there were a lot of insecurities that never got addressed but all the same, it was adorable and I loved it. ...
