    I liked the art, but the story...yeesh. Melodramatic much? I can't help but feel the real point of these characters' experiences was completely missed in the effort to amp up the drama in them. As if there isn't enough poignancy and pain and urgency in just the experiences, themselves....

    Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss. I enjoyed this story. Four young adults living in San Francisco are dissatisfied with their lives and don't know how to make it better--they are all affected by hearing radio broadcasts. I liked the diversity present in these stories, and I liked havi...

    This graphic novel impressed me so much. Went in blind and have no expectations at all. Some parts, the illustrations looked like a draft and raw, I guess it?s meant like that. ...

    The art was very good. I had a hard time keeping track of each protagonist's story because there were just so many, but it was clever to draw each in a different color palette. The thing I struggled with in this book is that there's nothing new about this misanthropic view of social me...

    This was surprisingly a very pleasant read. I went into it knowing absolutely nothing and I was really surprised by the story and the art.. It's beautiful. It's such a joy when I can't tell what the art will be like and then get blown away by it. Sometimes the cover is an indication bu...

    *I received this book as an eARC from Lion Forge via Netgalley & Edelweiss. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* This graphic novel follows four different, interconnected stories. Each character only uses one color...

    I managed to breeze through this in one hour. It's a graphic novel about four lives, and they all touch on some social commentary (queerness, insta fame, social justice, & vigilantism). I found the storylines to be a little underdeveloped, but I enjoyed the art enough. *I receiv...

    I love when books give me an existential crisis and make me question everything I have or haven?t done! Midnight Radio is an illustrated story that follows the perspective and stories of four vastly different yet similar characters that while they intersect at times, they?re en...

    This was both interesting and well drawn. It is four different stories set within an overarching story. The four main characters of each story are each facing complex challenges and difficulties some of which seem impossible to resolve. Each character hears a mysterious late night pira...

    I read most of this book while listening to the Eurovision songs (Please, someone talk to me about Eurovision, no one in Russia is passionate enough about this) and wearing a t-shirt that is tie-dyed with the trans colors and says "Genderless Society" so I don't think I've ever been mo...

    A mysterious late-night broadcast interrupts regular radio broadcasting; impacting the lives of four very different people. I honestly don't want to spoil too much of this because it's gorgeous to read this book. Each of the different characters and stories have a different color pa...

    Color plays a huge role in Midnight Radio, as there are four different POVs present. But what creates a more subtle yet equally important impact is the panel layout. The way it heightens as the story itself rises is brilliant. It brings the emotions of the story front and center. I als...

    Great great read! It talks about social issues of our modern world, but also about young adult that try to find they path into life and who they really are. Being themselves vs social pressure. I love the art, love the subject and love those four stories that mixed up perfectly while b...

    Midnight Radio is a short, thought-provoking graphic novel that is beautifully illustrated. It follows four characters who currently find themselves lost or in difficult social and personal situations that they're struggling to navigate or deal with. Each storyline is rich with emotion...

    Reading graphic novels has been my pleasure these past few weeks. Most of them I got from NetGalley. The book cover art impressed me, so I jumped into it without knowing what this is about. This novel narrates an interwoven story about four main characters: a guy who works on a corr...

    This book is about four people and their interwoven stories. There is Robin Hood, the art thief, who is recreating paintings so he can swap them out and take the money back to his community in Mexico. Next we have Instaking, who doesn't speak anymore. The third story is Inner Pulse, ab...

    Four separate stories of young people in San Francisco. Most of them were boring and we weren't given a larger context to care or identify with any of them. The stories didn't connect any more than one character might walk through the background of another character's story. Where the ...

    I went in not having a clue what the book was about. It's beautifully done, I love the use of color to differentiate between stories--I think 4 in one book is difficult to accomplish, but I got the gist of all of them. It's a cool idea, overall. ...

    (This review was originally posted on my blog ?Megan Reads? http://megansreviewingjourney.tumblr.... ) Netgalley gave me this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Since this is a short graphic novel, I won?t discuss any particular plot points because they?d be spoilers. ...

    I was provided this graphic novel (as an advanced reader copy) by NetGalley. All views expressed in this review are my own. My favorite thing about this was the use of color. Midnight Radio is composed of four stories that all seem to overlap in some way, but each protagonist has th...

    I loved the artwork and color schemes of this collection of interwoven stories. Midnight radio follows the stories of four different young people, each facing difficult decisions. Each of their stories is shown in a particular color, so as the pages turn and the colors change it is obv...

    This graphic novel had a bit of a slow start but by the end it was woven together nicely. It had parts that were very relevant to current events but they were framed in such a way that they will be understandable even beyond those events. ...

    This is an incredible single issue comic featuring four stories that are basically about life. The art is gorgeous. Each character has its own colour scheme which attributes to the feeling and atmosphere of each part. I was enjoying all the backgrounds of the places we explored, the a...

    In Midnight Radio, we follow four different people who listen to the same broadcast show. This was so interesting, I was instantly hooked. I really liked the characters and the themes explored and I loved the art style, distinguishing the characters by their colour was an amazing ide...

    Thanks to Edelweiss for the complimentary advance review copy of this title. Midnight Radio is a one-off graphic novel. Four separate stories are intertwined, and the mangaesque line art is a different color--monochrome red, blue, green or yellow--depending on the particular story. ...

    ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Overbearing preaching about social media. It made me not want to finish, but I did. I liked parts about the other stories, but found it hard to read because the messages were so overbearing and preachy. The art was beautifu...
