    Three years ago, a young man is introduced to the violent world of Domino and her girls when he attends his first dungeon party. In the present, Domino hosts an outdoor activity in which she interacts with her current slave. Later, the dominatrix reckons with her own deviant fantasies and the nature of her piglets. Finally, the Domino Girls are introduced by name and the incels go wild in the chatroom as the time grows closer to the Red Rooms next broadcast.The Story: Vecchio continues her exploration into the nature of consensual sexualized violence in the second installment of this horror fantasy. From BDSM to furries, this work delves into erotica that is by no means vanilla. Domino uses these unique activities to enhance her performances both inside and out of the Red Room. And while it is fair to say that her twisted use of this type of role play is fundamentally depraved, I also wonder how much Mother means to use this as her own form of psychodrama.As the art is also a massive p Read Full Review

    Lovesick #2 is another winning issue, the perfect combination of horror and sensuality, giving a peek into an underworld that most of us will never see and hope doesnt exist. It gives us deeper insight into the main character and never shies away from violence and gore. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Vecchio has already explored the fine line between the men who want to kill women and the men who wish to be killed by women. It will be interesting to see how she pits her antagonists against the object of their derision. I expect a lot more blood and guts come Lovesick #3, but what I'm really hoping for is more of a hook into Domino herself. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 30, 2022

    In the first issue, Domino felt like a hero. In the second issue, she begins to seem a bit more like a tragically conflicted character, who is almost certainly going to descend into her own madness. There was only a vague hint of Dominos potential destruction before. By the end of this issue, it seems almost inevitable. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Dec 5, 2022

    'Lovesick' is an unnerving look behind the curtain of the dark web. Issue two offers more death and fanatism but lacks depth and focus. Still a visually impressive and oppressive look at a death cult's culture. 'Lovesick' #2 dips a little story-wise but is still a fascinating dive into an ugly violent underground.  Read Full Review

    There's something deeply pathetic about what is contained in Lovesick #2 and perhaps that's some metatextual commentary on the men inside, but it's frankly not worth parsing. Read Full Review
