    This was so good and cute but also so heart-wrenching. I definitely didn't expect to cry this much while reading it. ...

    I received a free copy of this book from Edelweiss This was equal parts adorable and heartbreaking [and then adorable again ...and then heartbreaking again ...it was a roller coaster of emotions for sure] and I was absolutely bawling by the end [mostly happy tears but maybe a few sa...

    The art is the best thing about this book--fluid, colorful, bold, expressive. The writing, I thought, could have used some more work; the dialogue is painfully stilted in places, and the strong opening frame story never closes, leaving the reader awkwardly hanging. But I'm glad the sto...

    Two young women fall for each other at church bingo in 1963, but it's not one of the bits of the sixties where that's going to be OK. And then at another bingo night 50 years later, who should be there again? A love story across the decades to recall classic Hollywood weepies, but blac...

    This was so freaking adorable! Plus, the art was absolutely beautiful and so colourful. I loved the two main characters - especially Hazel. The writing was kind of awkward at times. Thee dialogue wasn't always super realistic and I wish some of the characters were developed a littl...

    Look, this isn't the perfect book but it is a beautiful story. The graphic novel industry is starving for stories like this and it is sO refreshing to find one! The artwork is lovely and very comfortable to sit with for a long read. The main characters, Elle and Mari, are beautiful, st...

    No sé, pensaba que me iba a gustar más de lo que al final lo ha hecho. Es una historia muy cuqui, pero muchas veces los diálogos no me parecían nada naturales. La historia tampoco está bien cerrada, es como si se olvidaran de que la prota le estaba contando la historia a su nieta....

    A story with a solid and affirming story. And well illustrated. It skews a bit unrealistic in places, but it?s intended for a younger readership. ...

    A truly beautiful love story of ageless love. ...

    Such a lovely, touching story that will stay with me a long time. Some of the dialogue was a bit stiff and didactic, but the majority of it was sweet and strong and engaging. ...

    This is a really sweet, angsty, and beautiful love story between two young black women who fall in love in the 1960s, but are torn apart by their disapproving families and forced to marry men, and what happens when they meet again almost 50 years later. I love St-Onge's artwork, it'...

    Love is love is love If you're looking for a story that is simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking, Bingo Love is for you. This graphic novel introduces readers to Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray, two young girls who meet and fall in love in the 1960s. They're torn apart by thei...

    It's really cool to be able to carry a book about older queer women of color. The only thing keeping this from being a five star book is that it's All Tell No Show. Everyone speaks their precise feelings and what is happening in the plot rather than having actual conversations. You've ...

    "A queer black love story" was the initial pitch I saw for this, the full-length writing debut of Tee Franklin, who at the time I only knew as the creator of Black Comics Month. Full disclosure: I'm a 40 year old straight white guy from the South, which means I am certainly NOT this bo...

    This is really charming and pretty much exactly what it says it is - two women of color who meet as teenagers are forcibly separated, they meet again when they're older and get together then. This is a love story we don't get to see often even though there are a lot of women who have k...

    I saw a GoFundMe post for this comic book earlier this year and the art is adorable, the plot line hooked me, and I was so excited to get my copy of this book! I?m torn because on one hand, I love representation and the love story between Hazel and Mari, and the fact the writer took ...

    The art is the best thing about this book--fluid, colorful, bold, expressive. The writing, I thought, could have used some more work; the dialogue is painfully stilted in places, and the strong opening frame story never closes, leaving the reader awkwardly hanging. But I'm glad the sto...

    Two young women fall for each other at church bingo in 1963, but it's not one of the bits of the sixties where that's going to be OK. And then at another bingo night 50 years later, who should be there again? A love story across the decades to recall classic Hollywood weepies, but blac...

    No sé, pensaba que me iba a gustar más de lo que al final lo ha hecho. Es una historia muy cuqui, pero muchas veces los diálogos no me parecían nada naturales. La historia tampoco está bien cerrada, es como si se olvidaran de que la prota le estaba contando la historia a su nieta....

    A story with a solid and affirming story. And well illustrated. It skews a bit unrealistic in places, but it?s intended for a younger readership. ...

    A truly beautiful love story of ageless love. ...

    I saw the Kickstarter for this book because one of the artists did the cover to my own book I Am Magical: magnifiqueNOIR Book 1 I knew I had to back it. The art is amazing, and I love the fact that one of the leads (Hazel) is dark skin, plus size, and treated as someone to be sought af...

    This is a really sweet, angsty, and beautiful love story between two young black women who fall in love in the 1960s, but are torn apart by their disapproving families and forced to marry men, and what happens when they meet again almost 50 years later. I love St-Onge's artwork, it'...

    Love is love is love If you're looking for a story that is simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking, Bingo Love is for you. This graphic novel introduces readers to Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray, two young girls who meet and fall in love in the 1960s. They're torn apart by thei...

    It's really cool to be able to carry a book about older queer women of color. The only thing keeping this from being a five star book is that it's All Tell No Show. Everyone speaks their precise feelings and what is happening in the plot rather than having actual conversations. You've ...

    "A queer black love story" was the initial pitch I saw for this, the full-length writing debut of Tee Franklin, who at the time I only knew as the creator of Black Comics Month. Full disclosure: I'm a 40 year old straight white guy from the South, which means I am certainly NOT this bo...

    This is really charming and pretty much exactly what it says it is - two women of color who meet as teenagers are forcibly separated, they meet again when they're older and get together then. This is a love story we don't get to see often even though there are a lot of women who have k...

    *thank you to Edelweiss for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review* 5 stars. Ohh. My. God. I had had a feeling that this was going to be good, but just how good, I seemed how have gotten wrong. It was so much better than I had expected!! It was so so so darn beau...

    I saw a GoFundMe post for this comic book earlier this year and the art is adorable, the plot line hooked me, and I was so excited to get my copy of this book! I?m torn because on one hand, I love representation and the love story between Hazel and Mari, and the fact the writer took ...

    "A queer black love story" was the initial pitch I saw for this, the full-length writing debut of Tee Franklin, who at the time I only knew as the creator of Black Comics Month. Full disclosure: I'm a 40 year old straight white guy from the South, which means I am certainly NOT this bo...

    This is really charming and pretty much exactly what it says it is - two women of color who meet as teenagers are forcibly separated, they meet again when they're older and get together then. This is a love story we don't get to see often even though there are a lot of women who have k...

    *thank you to Edelweiss for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review* 5 stars. Ohh. My. God. I had had a feeling that this was going to be good, but just how good, I seemed how have gotten wrong. It was so much better than I had expected!! It was so so so darn beau...

    The art is the best thing about this book--fluid, colorful, bold, expressive. The writing, I thought, could have used some more work; the dialogue is painfully stilted in places, and the strong opening frame story never closes, leaving the reader awkwardly hanging. But I'm glad the sto...

    Two young women fall for each other at church bingo in 1963, but it's not one of the bits of the sixties where that's going to be OK. And then at another bingo night 50 years later, who should be there again? A love story across the decades to recall classic Hollywood weepies, but blac...

    No sé, pensaba que me iba a gustar más de lo que al final lo ha hecho. Es una historia muy cuqui, pero muchas veces los diálogos no me parecían nada naturales. La historia tampoco está bien cerrada, es como si se olvidaran de que la prota le estaba contando la historia a su nieta....

    A story with a solid and affirming story. And well illustrated. It skews a bit unrealistic in places, but it?s intended for a younger readership. ...

    A truly beautiful love story of ageless love. ...

    Such a lovely, touching story that will stay with me a long time. Some of the dialogue was a bit stiff and didactic, but the majority of it was sweet and strong and engaging. ...

    This is a really sweet, angsty, and beautiful love story between two young black women who fall in love in the 1960s, but are torn apart by their disapproving families and forced to marry men, and what happens when they meet again almost 50 years later. I love St-Onge's artwork, it'...

    A story with a solid and affirming story. And well illustrated. It skews a bit unrealistic in places, but it?s intended for a younger readership. ...

    A truly beautiful love story of ageless love. ...

    Such a lovely, touching story that will stay with me a long time. Some of the dialogue was a bit stiff and didactic, but the majority of it was sweet and strong and engaging. ...

    This was really wonderful. The art was beautiful and the story was great and very emotional, I almost cried a few times reading it (because of both sadness and happiness.) ...

    I saw the Kickstarter for this book because one of the artists did the cover to my own book I Am Magical: magnifiqueNOIR Book 1 I knew I had to back it. The art is amazing, and I love the fact that one of the leads (Hazel) is dark skin, plus size, and treated as someone to be sought af...

    I loved it. The story is great and heartwarming. The art is fantastic! Romance normally isn't my thing, but I've followed Tee for years and wanted to support her. I'm glad I did. ...

    This was fantastic. A beautiful love story between two black queer women spanning decades that is super well written and the illustrations are gorgeous! I definitely recommend. ...

    Elle and Mari meet and are best friends right away. When they finally realize that they both feel romantically for each other, they are separated by their families and eventually pressured to marry young men and settle down in different cities. But after fifty years they run into each ...

    This is a really sweet, angsty, and beautiful love story between two young black women who fall in love in the 1960s, but are torn apart by their disapproving families and forced to marry men, and what happens when they meet again almost 50 years later. I love St-Onge's artwork, it'...

    Love is love is love If you're looking for a story that is simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking, Bingo Love is for you. This graphic novel introduces readers to Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray, two young girls who meet and fall in love in the 1960s. They're torn apart by thei...

    I backed this twice (one for me and one for my sis) on Kickstarter and just finished reading the PDF. When I first heard about this graphic novel on Twitter I knew that I wanted to get a copy. First of all the artwork caught my eye. Secondly the premise sounded great and intriguing...

    It's really cool to be able to carry a book about older queer women of color. The only thing keeping this from being a five star book is that it's All Tell No Show. Everyone speaks their precise feelings and what is happening in the plot rather than having actual conversations. You've ...

    "A queer black love story" was the initial pitch I saw for this, the full-length writing debut of Tee Franklin, who at the time I only knew as the creator of Black Comics Month. Full disclosure: I'm a 40 year old straight white guy from the South, which means I am certainly NOT this bo...
