    Lonely Receiver is a chilling read that shows how you can have horror in romance. It explores the intense feelings of love and how quickly they can turn to terror. Read Full Review

    Depending on how badly relationships have gone in your own life, you'll get different things out of a series like this. I've had some rough breakups and endings that already made the first issue a hell of a rough read and the events here only serve to reinforce my own self-critiques of how I acted a long time ago. There's a lot to like in watching how this unfolds with Catrin doing so much to deceive herself and the artwork elevates it to a whole other level. It's hauntingly beautiful and disturbing in far too many scenes even though those scenes are really just simple things, such as clubbing and dinner. But with the character layer here that we understand it takes on so much more meaning. Read Full Review
