    This book is not for the faint hearted. With some topics of the books being easily identified, it is the idea of what does consent mean that actually powers the book. The smoke and mirrors aside, there's no real reason documented as to why Domino does what she does. It will be interesting to see these motivations, possibly hinted at in places, comes to light. With the terseness of the locales, art and script, I would hate for something supernatural to supplant the not-quite-real-world styling of this issue. Read Full Review

    Lovesick is a stunning visual comic. Most definitely explicit, some may say excessive. What isn't excessive is the lettering. Other than dialogue and chatroom text this comic is narrative free. There isn't much need to explain most of what this comic contains is self evident. After this first issue, if you don't know now you know; notorious. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Oct 26, 2022

    Lovesick #1 is the beginning of another great series. Luana Vecchio does the art and story, and it's a perfect combination of horror and eroticism. Domino is a fascinating character and the world of this story is wonderfully complex and dark. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 26, 2022

    Though not for everyone, Lovesick is compelling horror worth picking up if you like movies like Audition which push boundaries. At its core, Lovesick has a story to tell about sadomasochistic males, toxic culture, and desire. At times disturbing, Lovesick is anexamination of pain, misogyny, and how loneliness can bring us to the most disturbing and brutal places. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Oct 26, 2022

    There's nothing like 'Lovesick' and it is a niche in horror unto itself. It's extremely dark and disturbing but captivating in it's ugliness. Give it a try if these themes don't bother you. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 27, 2022

    Theres real potential in a hero like Domino. She can go places and do things that most other comic book heroes cant. Vecchio has an excellent opportunity to explore an extremely unique perspective on love and violence with Lovesick. A story like Dominos could go in quite a few directions, and only a few of them are really going to live up to the potential of the premise. As of the first issue, shes only peering into a relatively superficial level of a theme that could reach deep into the core of human consciousness. Read Full Review

    Confident but missing an actual story and so intense that it almost distracts from deep thinking. Read Full Review

    Anyone looking at this comic with an ounce of adult perspective will quickly find its shallowness unworthy of engagement at any level. Read Full Review
