    LoveRomances#1 is a feast of tonal shifts, O. Henry twists, and goes beyond the typical romance template in occasionally freaky ways. It would be great if this was more than just a one-shot. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 20, 2019

    Love Romances #1 is a satisfying anthology on the theme of "love and loss." While it does not disappoint, it also does not have the storytelling horsepower to launch itself off the shelf into your hands. The editorial essay at the end claims that romance comics aren't dead in the 21st century. This anthology, by itself, isn't enough to jolt them back to life. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 22, 2019

    The comics page could hold so much more than traditional romance in ways theatre, cinema and video could never touch. It's too bad Paniccia didn't try something more daring in a one-shot anthology. It's only one issue, so it doesn't actually have to make money. Why not do something wild and breathtaking with it? What could possibly be more romantic than that? Read Full Review

    Not as bad as I expected it to be. The Widow and the Clockwork Heart by Gail Simone had an interesting idea and a great twist. Heartbroken From Beyond by Margaux Motin and Pacco Dorwling-Carter was simple, yet sweet. French Quartered by Dennis Hopeless was probably the least inspired of the bunch. And Gone Like the Wind by Jon Adams was a very cynical take on robot love. It worked more than it didn't. But it still was a bit much. All in all, it did a good job showcasing how a romance comic can be twisted into very different stories.

    Some of these were okay, it was definitely better than I expected.
