Forget superheroes! Our special agents are on a mission of love in the pages of comic books and graphic novels. To do this topic justice we’ve brought in some specialized agents including Danica Le Blanc, an owner of a local comic book store (LCBS), and Paul Cornell, a comic book writer. Our team has recommendations for teen romance, queer romance, and erotic romance proving that everyone can find love in the racks of the comic book store.
