    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Feb 27, 2022

    Rockstar and Softboy is a rare and wonderful queer friendship story from Sina Grace that isn't afraid to embrace its chaotic side once the house party gets going. The comic is also filled with frank and honest conversations from the main characters as they discuss their relationships, flaws, and why they end up clicking in the end. It's definitely worth adding to your Sina Grace slice of life/memoir library, and he even uses some tricks from working in superhero comics for the big gay super sentai battle royale at the end in a fusion of indie and mainstream styles.
