Unrelated – There is one thing you should know about me when it comes to comics: Image and Boom! reign supreme on my Comixology app and in my heart.
Tony sent over a small collect of comics to me via the Comixology app while I waited for my COVID-19 tests (I took two) to come back (negative and negative – I’m a witch).
The collection included Bingo Love – Image publishing, Joe the Barbarian – Vertigo publishing, and We Only Find Them When They’re Dead – Boom! publishing.
The books were in alphabetical order when downloaded, so I started with Bingo Love without reading anything about it. I had no idea what I was reading, but by the cover it looked like a lighthearted love story with a sweet color palette.
Minutes later, I’m crying into my pillow and unable to move on with my life! I woke up this morning, and immediately berated Tony via text for being a terrible (by “terrible” I mean “absolutely wonderful”) friend and comic book nerd.
READ. THIS. COMIC.
How often to do you read anything, comic or novel, two senior women’s love story with one another? You don’t! READ THIS. READ THIS RIGHT NOW.
Seriously, though – The story is wonderfully moving. The characters are so real you almost know them somehow. The writing is on point, and the artwork is lovely.
Be ready to cry, but in a good way… Not in an oh-my-god-why-am-i-watching-cnn-again kind of way, but in a my-heart-is-full-of-all-the-feels-i-need-a-cupcake-and-a-nap kind of way.
