    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 14, 2017

    I'm not sure you'll find a more emotional comic book experience than Love is Love. Its creation comes out of a tragedy, but it's purpose and meaning is impossible to deny. This work is filled with compassion–something we can never lose sight of–and it's a reminder we all can and do make a difference because we love. Read Full Review

    Not only for the good that the funds raised by this book will do, but for the simple quality of the artwork and writing, ranging from Shakespeare and JK Rowling to Paige Braddock, G. Willow Wilson, and Gerry Duggan, it's all top-notch. Read Full Review

    It is worth to mention, that ALL proceeds from this book will be going to the victims, survivors and their families via Equality Florida. I have read this book over. I don't think I have felt so much or wept so much at the bravery of the characters within. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Dec 28, 2016

    As Batman says in King and Gerads' story, “Today, I will get up. Today, I will face their hate… And I will again fight for my love.”Visual and verbal moments like that are why I love comics. Read Full Review

    We're all in this life together, we'd better learn how to get along, and soon or things will only get worse. Maybe you don't have to like people who are so different than you are, but you damn sure shouldn't hate them either. Read Full Review

    I hate to come across as picking on a book that was created for pure altruistic motives, and yet here I am -- but this is a problem all anthologies have: some stories are better than others, despite the good intentions of all the creators involved.

    You got some solid one or two page stories, you got some entries that are just baffling and one or two that are almost downright insulting... not out of malice mind you, but the execution was just terrible.

    In the end, people need to mourn and find ways to cope with the tragedy, and as creators, they took to this to share how they feel; I cannot diminish the intention -- but good intentions also gave us Magneto and Doctor Doom crying over the WTC remains 15 more

    Very inspiring, with some very minor issues. First, any reader of this comic must realize that the meaning is more important than the story with this comic, which the comic does very right. The problem that exists is that stories aren't really sorted, which at times can take away from the emotion that is meant to be expressed with this poems, prose, and stories. Again, this is meant to inspire, not to impress, which I agree it does time and time again.
