    [I received an electronic review copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.] 3 stars = Good/solid/fine (Personal rating would be lower - this wasn't a great fit for me) Painfully shy, grieving, guilt-bearing, obsessive Victor...

    A new version of Victor (DC supervillain, Mr. Freeze) and Nora's love story! Origin stories are always fun and interesting. This telling gives us a glimpse at a young love blooming out of personal loss, leading to a unique bond between Victor & Nora. The colors used in this gr...

    This is one DC villain origin story that you don't want to miss. DC villains have always been misunderstood in my book. They all have the most fascinating origin stories and their character arcs are always super complex and compelling. Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story by Laure...

    I honestly had no idea who this was about until I started reading it. I just knew it was a new DC Ink title, and I've been loving them so far. And this was no exception - another good addition to this only-vaguely-connected series. I honestly had no idea who this was about unt...

    Completely loved this story. It was definitely a love story and like all good love stories, it has a heart-ache, but a perfect amount. It didn't go into schlocky or overly sentimental. The artwork was gorgeous and the characterization of both Victor and Nora was spot on. They were...

    Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story is exactly what it sounds like, a love story about Victor Fries (aka Mr. Freeze), and his beloved, Nora Kumar. Written by Lauren Myracle and illustrated by Isaac Goodhart, this graphic novel is the newest addition to DC's young adult graphic n...

    I really appreciated the complexity of the two families. They are both grief-stricken but still tasked with raising these two intelligent teens who are both freaked out and totally engrossed by this love interest. While I didn?t like the artwork especially, I appreciated the variety ...

    I actually loved this. A fun, fluffy love story with a tinge of sadness. I'm a huge fan of Isaac Goodhart's art. And the colorist deserves some love for the stunning color palette - the way Victor and Nora each had their own color palette at the beginning of their individual ...

    A sold start to the origin story of Victor Fries, who will one day become notorious DC villain Mr. Freeze. It?s a good premise for a ?how they went bad? type of origin story, though when we leave off after this graphic novel, we have no clue as to how that might happen. Indee...

    I just panned Swamp Thing: Twin Branches for being too angsty and having an introverted scientist for a lead character, but here in a tragic love story those elements work, mostly because the reserved Victor Fries is overshadowed by the giant personality of Elinor Grace "Nora"...

    The pictures in the book are GORGEOUS! I want Nora's hair! Ha! The backstory of how Victor became Mr. Freeze was interesting, but I am not a huge Marvel fan, so I wasn't as invested as a Mr. Freeze fan would be. BUT, if you are a Marvel fan, look out this would be up your all...

    I don?t know about this one... In the storylines I?ve read, Victor is a creepster who owns Nora?s preserved body and calls her his wife without consent. Because, you know, ?romance? But I think it probably breaks from the comic storylines. Most of the YA DC graphic novels ...

    I knew of this book but wasn?t tempted to read it till my book club mentioned that there were some interesting themes in this book that made it a great read. Look, I get where the novelty of this book comes from, but so much of it played out as stereotypical teenaged angst. Downg...

    I have read a handful of Lauren Myracle books, but Victor and Nora is the first graphic novel that I've read. Victor and Nora tells the story of two seventeen-year-olds who have both experienced the loss of a family member. Nora reckons with death by leaning in: she has an illness...

    The art was STUNNING but the story itself wasn't nearly as well done. The romance felt instantaneous and the characters lacked development and depth. The ending was pretty rushed, too. The art was STUNNING but the story itself wasn't nearly as well done. The romance felt instan...

    I have always loved, and been fascinated by, the story of Victor Fries. It is beautiful, sad, and tragic. This comic shows his background so beautifully. The art is gorgeous, and the writing is amazing. I found myself holding out hope that the story would end differently than what is p...

    Obsessed! DC and Marvel are sometimes a struggle for me to get into, but adding a romance storyline made all the difference. I loved the dark vs light, fire vs ice storyline between Victor and Nora. I was dying to find out how it would end and for sure want to read the sequel (there ha...

    I have absolutely no background knowledge on any DC comics, so this review might seem a little out of touch with the original material. Having said that, my rating is purely based on the story in this volume alone with no outside influence. I feel like I say this about so many graph...

    Huge thank you to DC Comics and Netgalley for this e-arc in exchange for an honest review. This story completely ripped my heart out! It's emotional, it's messy, it's engaging, it's smart and a wild ride. For those not familiar, this is an adaptation of the story...
