My Love Mix Up #3

Apr 5, 2022

From ridiculous antics in the snow to realistically awkward street conversations, the writing sells these neurotic teens' best and worst moments. The art also continues to show a fantastic understanding of comics as a medium and how to elevate a fairly standard premise into one of the most consistently enjoyable series of the year.

New York, New York (2022) #1

Mar 13, 2022

New York, New York Vol. 1 is uneven and unpolished, but its strengths more than make up for its weaknesses. Kain and Mel read very believably as two gay men dealing with the difficulties inherent to life in their physical and temporal context, and the strong supporting cast elevate the series considerably. While the art isn't outstanding it does a good job selling the series' emotional and thematic core, and the overall read is a satisfying one that builds excitement for volume two.

If you're content to let Matsumoto's tide push and pull you wherever it goes, then reading this volume makes for quite the relaxing experience.

Tesla Note #1

Oct 29, 2021

A shiny, action-packed series that grabs one's attention with its premise just to fail to deliver on any of said premise's charm.
