    I desperately need more of this book. I need to see what happens next and what Casanova has planned. I don't yet care that much about the creepy tech company or Lexy's dad, but if we can find out more about them, I'll be excited. It's a really great second issue and I need anyone with an interest in history and science fiction should pick it up while it's good and early. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 14, 2016

    New Romancer #2 has an infectious, chaotic energy especially when Casanova or Lord Byron show up on the panel, and Milligan keep things relatable through the character of Lexy, who is having difficulties finding true love because of her idiosyncrasies and just how damn hard 21st century dating is for a twentysomething. Brett Parson also draws some funny facial expressions and gestures to along with Milligan's wacky wit. Even though it often doesn't know if it wants to be a romance, comedy, or serious exploration of relationships, New Romancer #2 is a pretty fun and unique read, especially with the promise of a face-off between Casanova and Lord Byron in the next issue.
