    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 7, 2023

    The journey into self-awareness that Joan has been going through over the course of the series has been pretty intense. Theres some profound level of darkness going on in Tom Kings 1963 that reflects deeper concerns in the heart of the American home in that era. Its a fascinating, provocative look at the human psyche that holds great promise in possibly exploring things of equal depth from other eras through Joans fractured psyche. In the long run, the series repetition COULD damage it, but it still feels like an impressive accomplishment eight issues-in. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jun 8, 2023

    Love Everlasting #8 is a great showcase for the creative team to experiment and play with form, using the visual language established in the previous issues to reveal Joans mental state. Whether it be the narrative rhymes in Kings script, the echoes of last issues claustrophobic layouts from Charretier, or subtle shifts in Hollingsworths colors and Cowles letter, this issue is a success in breaking and reestablishing the elements of the books reality. This experimentation ensures the book never feels stagnant or dragging as it settles into 1963, and the dull, mundane life Joan finds herself trapped in. Read Full Review
