I really enjoyed this graphic novel! The characters were relatable and the art was gorgeous! I would say that in parts it was challenging to follow just due to the number of characters and how entwined their lives were!
Still, I loved it and would particularly recommend for anyone coming to terms with either using binders or accepting their gender. Also, yey for polyamorous representation! ♡
Cute characters physically and otherwise. Could have used some better transitions to sexy scenes and within the story. Fun for a book version of someone else's favorite "alone time" fantasies but not great as an actual book. I like it as erotica ok I guess, but I am wishing it had more depth. Another story by the same author such as the tween graphic novel Deep and Darkest Blue suffers from the same lack of depth and disjointed storytelling in an otherwise intriguing and promising tale. Still worth the quick read on both fronts. Hoping the second Deep book is more developed.
I was very excited to receive this book. Was waiting by my mailbox for 2 weeks. It came and I finished it within 15 minutes. Very flat characters and none of them were very likeable except for Lee. Short and basic dialogue, and I knew nothing about any of the characters to want to care about their personal relationships. I mean.. I can’t ship people I don’t know? Also, the colors were painful. Literally. It triggered a cluster headache for me because the colors were just so imbalanced. I’m sorry that the author probably poured their heart and soul into creating a literary work of their own, but this just wasn’t it. It just seemed like a smut factory for all their OCs. Also, just a side note about political correctness: if someone uses the wrong pronouns for a person, you can correct them without dramatically running off in the sunset. Way to paint people with little to no information about someone as jerks.
I want to support artist, but honestly I really did not like this graphic novel. First was the coloring. The strong pink on black and white made reading and visually grasping images difficult. Second the storylines basically revolves around the characters meeting in Comic Con lobbies and the upper hotel rooms for various rendezvous, cool at first became flat and tired quick. Lastly the dialogue between characters was “elementary” concentrating more on using proper PC terms than character development.
The story or stories in this are overly simple and not very filling.
However, I do appreciate how this is a perspective of different types of people learning to love and explore their bodies and sexualities as well as gender. It can be seen as a bit explicit, but honestly it's about honest experiences people most definitely have gone through.
For that it's worth a read. A nice collection to my growing graphic novel self.
