When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-'60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.

From TEE FRANKLIN (NAILBITER's "THE OUTFIT," Love is Love) and JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits), BINGO LOVE is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.
"A towering emotional achievement. BINGO LOVE more

    With same sex marriage finally legalised in Australia and acceptance growing around the world it's still important to remember how far LGBTIQ+ rights have come. How far we've come in acceptance and arguably how much further there still is to go. This wonderful story strips away the name calling, the political point scoring and simply looks at two people who fall in love and the challenges they face to express that love. It would be interesting to have someone opposed to same sex relationships read this story and find out what they think afterwards. There are no real stereotypes here" nothing to grab on to and dismiss" it is simply two people, in love. There doesn't need to be any more to it than that. A lovely story that should be read by as many people as possible and maybe a few people will come to realise that indeed" love, is love! Read Full Review

    But for the rest of our sakes, the readers and those looking to see the comics industry as a whole break beyond the narrow worldview its supported for over 80 years, we need this book and others like it to serve as an allegory for what can be possible. Elle and Mari knew something was missing, just like we do. And making that break to get something truly RIGHT is hard. But Bingo Love shows us its worth it. Its worth it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Jan 17, 2018

    Stories like Bingo Love are vital to comic books as an industry. More diversity can only produce more varied and phenomenal stories and for this reason Bingo Love is a marvel. We need more and more voices such as Tee Franklin's to take center stage. And Bingo Love is an adequate enough introduction into the realm of comic writing. It isn't horrible by any stretch of the imagination. It's simply not a knock out, which is perfectly fine. Read Full Review
