    Love Everlasting #3 plays with its structure and establishes an internal rhyming scheme that ensures that familiar plot beats avoid feeling worn while delivering an excellent bit of insight into Joans doomed loop. Kings script is an excellent execution of familiar tropes and the diverging paths of romance, while Charretier mixes modern and classic artistic sensibilities to highlight that immutable endpoint for Joan. Pairing that sense of finality with Hollingsworths beautiful and sensory-evoking colors is an excellent decision that sells the sweeping emotional core to the book and makes it one of the best titles on shelves.

    There is an appeal to Love Everlasting as an ongoing series, but its going to be a bit of a challenge to keep everything going as Joan deals with problems from life to life and setting to setting. Image continues to present the old Substack end of the series for now. It will be interesting to see how long it will take it moving forward into new issues. King and Charretier have a compelling rhythm going with the series thus far. It will remain to be seen if they can maintain the intrigue moving forward.  Read Full Review
