[Book Review] Bingo Love
Bingo Love OGN - Tee Franklin, Jenn St Onge
Bingo Love / Tee Franklin, Jenn St-Onge (ill), and Joy San (ill)
 
I... don't even know where to start summarizing this story or reviewing beyond this: you will cry.  This story brings all of the Feels and will rip out your heart.  And you will love it all the more for it.

Buy, read it, add it to your library, it's worth it.

From the publisher:
When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage. From TEE FRANKLIN (NAILBITER’s “THE OUTFIT,” Love is Love) and JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits), BINGO LOVE is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.

[Book Review] User
User - Devin Grayson

User is the queer coming-of-age on the Internet story I didn't know I was looking for (but really should have been).

I grew up discovering the Internet as it grew from a specialist resource and message board hub into the complex sprawling hodge-podge it is now.  Not that Internet is not still growing and changing, but it's become something a bit more ubiquitous rather than something that's limited special interest or hobby.  There's still a divide in how people view friendships and relationships developed in person and online, but those relationships do occur and can be incredibly meaningful as are the worlds we create with each other.

User is a story about all of that and more.  It's about finding refuge in shared fantasy and friendship, as told by a young woman who discovers text-based online fantasy gaming.  The story is heartfelt and raw, dealing with difficult subjects frankly.  I highly recommend.

Wow.

User by Devin Grayson is the queer, coming-of-age on the internet graphic novel I didn't know I was looking for.  It's raw, painful, beautiful, and relateable.

quote 2017-03-02 21:03
Tolerance was bullshit. Fuck tolerance. Madison was tolerant, except for when it wasn't. Madison was tolerant unless you strayed so much as a mile outside in any direction or invited people from the outside in. Chad Perry was from Kenosha it turned out, and then it didn't work, did it?

Poppy wasn't something to be tolerated, like when you got a cold. And yes it was annoying, and no you weren't going to die, so buy some tissues and a book about zombies and go to bed for a few days.

Head colds should be tolerated. Children should be celebrated.
