Cross post: Fresh Romance: Volume 1 review


After falling in love with the digital monthlies, I was quick to throw money at a Kickstarter campaign for a print version of Fresh Romance earlier this year. That campaign was a success, and my copy of the Fresh Romance: Volume 1 paperback arrived last month, which I wrote a review for over at NZ Booklovers. Here’s a little snippet:

As outlandish as some of the scenarios are, the characters are all wonderfully human and relatable – even those that aren’t actually human – and so it’s easy to get swept up in the goings on. It’s not often that a comic will have me giggling with delight or bouncing around with joy at how cute a certain panel is, but with Fresh Romance, it felt like I was doing that on every other page.

You can read the full review here.

I’m very much looking forward to what the future holds for Fresh Romance and for Rosy Press in general. Janelle Asselin and the rest of the team have achieved something remarkable here, and the future is certainly look rosy.
