    1. Read more of my reviews at Cornerfolds!I picked up Fresh Romance in early 2016 and had every intention of reading it. Instead it sat on my shelf for over a year and I am just now getting around to picking it up. I didn't realize when I brought this home that it was an anthology of short graphic novels ranging in genre from paranormal to historical fiction. My main takeaway from this anthology is that the stories are entirely too short. I was interested in most of them, but they were SO short tha [...]

    2. School Spirit, by Kate Leth and Arielle JovellanosTwo pairs of star-crossed lovers— the girls with homophobic parents, the boy whose parents want him to meet a nice girl and settle down and the magical girl who isn't allowed to date mortals— make out, get found out, and decide to seize the day with one last dance. I wish we had more in this world, cause I want to know what happens next! And I am reaffirmed as a fan of Kate Leth. Playful and fun.Recommended Ruined, by Sarah Vaughn and Sarah W [...]

    3. Surprisingly enough, I liked this book. The first story, School Spirits was pretty great. It followed a group of friends who all had something to hide. Great art, original story. Ruined was also pretty good. I really enjoyed the art and was surprised how well the story was told. If you had told me I'd like a story about 1800's British aristocracy, I'd say you're crazy. The rest of the stories didn't really hold my interest that much.

    4. This is another of those books that I knew nothing about going in. It just caught my eye. So it's a collection of romance comics, most of them containing at least a few elements of fantasy--magic, supernatural beings, etc. All but one are self-contained, although further adventures of the same characters are always possible. This was a light and fun read. The casts of the various stories tend to be multi-ethnic without being showy about it, and there are LGBTQ aspects to some of the romances, wh [...]

    5. the first one was So Cute i had such high hopes & the second one had potential (but ended with to be continued) the others were not amazing and the last (long) one was a fucking furry story that was nasty

    6. A collection of short and sweet, beautifully illustrated, just-romantic-enough stories. Loved the art, the characters, and the variety of settings from modern high school (with a paranormal twist) to a folktale-esque story. Can't wait for vol.2. <3

    7. This was a pretty interesting read especially since it was a compilation of short comics. There of course were some that I preferred to others. Here is what I thought of each one. School spirit: I really liked this one. The whole dynamic behind the true relationships of the characters made it that much more interesting. There was also great representation. The ending left me wanting more and unfortunately I don't know if we will ever get a second part. Ruined: I liked the Victorian vibe in this [...]

    8. So cute. I had a friend recommend this to me, so I started reading the first story (big fan of Kate Leth!) and before I knew it I had devoured the whole thing. It was just what I wanted-- fun, cute, diverse, romantic. If any of those things appeal to you, pick this up! I'll be loaning it out to friends immediately. ;)

    9. Lovely collection of queer and straight romance comics short stories. Good for lightening up your mood of you're having a bad day

    10. This was AMAZING so sweet and soft and full of good lessons that I wish I'd learned in high school.

    11. Such an amazing anthology! I adored every story in this collection. I hope more Fresh Romance stories are released in the future!

    12. Picked this up because of Kate Leth, ended up loving all the stories inside. Highly recommend this anthology.

    13. More of a 4.5 overall.I loved Ruined, Beauties, and The Ruby Equation and enjoyed School Spirits and the Kieron Gillen story whose name I forgot (>_<)It's sweet, it's diverse, and the art is all kinds of gorgeous! While investigating the possibility of a volume 2, I saw that Janelle Asselin folded Rosy Press (the series' original publisher), which is a bummer. I'll have to chip in to the new Kickstarter for volume 2 through its new home.

    14. I have mixed feelings about this anthology. I put off the review until I figured out what was bothering me. The writing was all good. The art was delightful. Then I realized that I didn't like the different kinds of romance mixed into one anthology.This contained paranormal romance, YA contemporary romance, YA paranormal romance, fantasy, and historical romance and, for me, I didn't enjoy that mixture. I'm not a big fan of YA romance, so those stories fell rather flat for me (tho, there was noth [...]

    15. I started reading the first story and I was like, "ugh, what is this junk?" And then came the first twist and I was like, "oh, wait, okay, never mind, I'm in!" And I ended up loving it! The next one weirded me out a little, mainly cause it's Jane Austen-esque, but with nudity (ack, whaaaaat?), but I still really want to know what's her deal, and what's his deal, and what's the deal There's also a really beautifully done Beauty and the Beast retelling, and a couple of paranormal stories, one cute [...]

    16. Loved School Spirit! It was cute and queer with a hint of magic! Why can't there be more stories like this! Loved The Ruby Equation! Beauties was BEAUTIFUL! The art and the story were just so perfect! Despite First, Last and Always being ridiculously short I loved the idea! I'll forever want more from it! And honestly Ruined just wasn't for me.

    17. This is a cute graphic anthology! My favorite is a tie between the "School Spirit" and "The Ruby Equation." I liked the former's romance the most, but the latter's art and setup was my absolute favorite. The colors are so PRETTY. The other two stories were okayey were missing the great personality that were in the others.

    18. A great collection of really varied comics on romance. I loved the surface complexity and diversity in School Spirit, the art in The Ruby Equation, but my favorite overall was Ruined for its simplistic depth of emotion and my NEED for the next installment.

    19. Cute stories, quick read. I really liked 3 of the 5 stories. The other 2 weren't bad, just not as interesting. My favorite is probably the last one which is also the shorest but I loved the concept of it.

    20. This is an anthology so I'm gonna do a short review for each of the stories.School SpiritI was really confused at first (some of the plot points weren't too clear for a bit), but once I figured things out I really enjoyed this one! It builds a unique and interesting world (that's filled with diversity) despite its short length and I'd honestly love to see so much more of it and its characters.One sentence summary: Teenagers deal with coming out, magical law, and of course, prom.RuinedEhhh I didn [...]

    21. A collection of romance comics. Reviews average out at a 4.5School Spirit: 5 stars, a really good magical realism story, loved the characters, drew me in quickly, definitely my favourite art style of all of them and Queer comic book ladies will always make me happy. Ruined: 4 stars, a nice historical fiction comic but it didn't feel very original and I think I'dve liked it more if it were a lot longer. It kinda reminded me of pride and prejudice but if the whole story hadn't happened and it was [...]

    22. Fresh Romance Vol.1 is a good mix of all kinds of romance, art styles and stories.Sometimes with anthologies I can get lost without a source material (i.e. didn't read the novel proper before reading the short story), but in Fresh Romance, even in the midst of an on-going story I can still enjoy the read. This anthology has a bit of everything: three of the comics take place in the modern ages, and the others don't. Some have magic, another one has space tech, and another one doesn't have anythi [...]

    23. An anthology of four longer stories and one very slight one by a collection of excellent authors and illustrators. Kate Leth and Arielle Jovellanos's contribution is a star-crossed high school romance that was a little too frivolous for my taste (though I did appreciate the inclusion of queer characters). Sarah Vaughn and Sarah Winifred Searle's story is the first chapter of an Austinesque tale of a woman entering into a marriage she already regrets. Sarah Kuhn and Sally Jane Thompson created a [...]
