Miriam's family should be rich. After all, her grandfather was the co-creator of smash-hit comics series The TomorrowMen. But he sold his rights to the series to his co-creator in the 1960s for practically nothing, and now that's what Miriam has: practically nothing. And practically nothing to look forward to either-how can she afford college when her family can barely keep a roof above their heads? As if she didn't have enough to worry about, Miriam's life gets much more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town . . . and turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam's grandfather, and heir to the TomorrowMen fortune.

In her endearing debut novel, cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks pens a sensitive and funny Romeo and Juliet tale about modern romance, geek royalty, and what it takes to heal the long-festering scars of the past (Spoiler Alert: love).

I remember back when I first heard about Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks. It sounded so interesting, especially as a huge superhero nerd. Luckily I can say that this book did not disappoint!

what i liked:

  • It kind of reads like a Romeo & Juliet retelling. I didn’t expect it and was pleasantly surprised! I love the twist and how it was more about a riff between two comic book world creators.
  • Miriam and Weldon. I loved it whenever they got to interact because they were both so fun together.
  • The TomorrowMen. It sounds like something I’d totally be obsessed with if it were actually real! I’d definitely want to be completely immersed into the TomorrowMen, just like I am with Marvel!

what I disliked:

  • I wish it wasn’t a standalone! I loved these characters so much and I didn’t want to let them go. :/

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks. It’s the perfect Romeo & Juliet retelling for nerds!
