Title: Bingo Love

Writer: Tee Franklin
Artist: Jenn St. Onge and Joy San
Upcoming Release Date: February 20, 2018

Synopsis: Bingo Love is a story of a same-sex romance that spans over 60 years. A chance meeting at church bingo in 1963 brings Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray together. Through their formative years, these two women develop feelings for each other and finally profess their love for one another.

Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid 60’s, Hazel and Mari are reunited again at a bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.


Review: This is a beautiful story. It's the story of two black grandmas in love. And how they became in love. And the challenges their love faced. I don't have many words for this comic other than to tell you to go buy it immediately. The world needs more stories like this. Especially stories told in such beautiful colorful artwork as this is. I highly recommend this to everyone. A well deserved 5/5
