    Mysteries of Love in Space #1 is a collection of several one-off stories from a huge array of creators, from the well-known, to the up and coming, to the lesser known. In spite of that, each story here is a great read, whether you're familiar with the characters or not. If you're looking for a fresh take on love stories in comics, this is a must buy this week.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 30, 2019

    Overall I had a lovely time with this anthology. They keep getting better and better, and I think the editorial team of Alex Antone and Dave Wielgosz should be immensely proud of not only the talent they managed to accrue for this anthology, but also for the quality of these stories. I liked every single one, and even loved a few of them! It's kind of unprecedented. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Jan 30, 2019

    I believe that the anthology format DC Comics uses, despite the higher than average price-point, is a solid one and I hope continues. You get access to lots of stories that would not fit within the normal confines of a monthly series or are not long enough to justify a limited series. Sometimes they seem to set the stage for up upcoming stories, and sometimes they are just because the creators love that character. Either way, it is worth the effort and full of entertainment.MYSTERIES OF LOVE IN SPACE #1 continues DC's effort to bring us short stories in an anthology format, all based on a theme with a twist. I love it, and I think you would too. Make sure you pull a copy for your Valentine today. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan Hodgdon Feb 4, 2019

    DC has been on a respectable roll with their holiday-themed anthologies in this post-Rebirth Era, and Mysteries of Love in Space is a lovely continuation of that trend. One hopes DC will continue to publish these collections; they aren't just a fun way to broaden the DC Universe, they also serve as a wonderful playground for the many terrific creators that we all know and love.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 30, 2019

    DC's seasonal anthologies have been a fun, offbeat treat from the company every few months " combining short stories from top talent with a great spotlight for up-and-coming creators. That continues with the eight stories in this sci-fi Valentine's Day special, although it at times feels like a bit more of a shaggy dog than previous volumes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Govan Jan 31, 2019

    "Mysteries of Love in Space" offers the best of both worlds. It focuses on superheroes while giving a little taste of romance comics's long gone heyday. It's nice that this giant chooses to laser in on the positive aspects of the DC Universe, like friendship and love. It might be a little corny, but it's always appreciated. It makes the heroes more relatable, fleshes out their character. Somewhere in the multiverse, there's a reality where romance comics still reign supreme. Since we can't visit for the foreseeable future, this issue is as close as we're going to get. Read Full Review

    While the comic doesn't feature much for "Loseid" fans ("Darkis"?), most of the stories are decent -- or at least not actively bad. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 30, 2019

    Eight stories, and one is a reprint from Showcase #17 from 1958. Even if the new stories were great--and they're not--this would be an unbearable cash grab for ten bucks. For shame, DC Comics. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - lizzylynngarcia Jan 30, 2019

    What should have been a fun, campy retro-futuristicromp ends up feeling closer to the 1998 movie Lost in Space where Joey from Friends,Matt LeBlanc, tries to sleep with Heather Graham.The inspiration is there but it is executedpoorly.With a hefty price tag of $9.99, I have a hard time recommending this book even though I enjoyed some of the stories and the art.
