Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks
4 out of 5 stars.

Goodreads Description: 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 received an ARC of Comics Will Break Your Heart from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Release date: Today, February 12, 2019.

I don’t read a lot of comics and I’m not really into the whole superhero thing either (I feel like everyone is except me, haha). I weirdly was really into Comics Will Break Your Heart though! There’s a lot of comic story talk because of TomorrowMen and the characters in the book being into the comics/series and also because of the family history with the comic as well. Comics Will Break Your Heart is more than just about superheroes and comics though, which I really liked.

I felt like the characters were really relatable and different aspects of the story itself was as well. Miriam struggled with what to do after high school and Weldon had to deal with two mostly absent parents in his life; his dad obsessed with his business and his mom just seemed really unstable. I liked the friendship that Miriam and Weldon eventually grew into. They weren’t sure if they should be friends or how it would all work out with the family drama between their two families.

Overall, I really liked Comics Will Break Your Heart. There were a couple things that I wasn’t that into though, one being that I felt the ending was left unfinished because there was no real resolution to the whole TomorrowMen situation between the families.  I still had questions regarding that situation. That aspect of the story just didn’t feel resolved to me. Everything else in the story was great though. It was a cute, fun, geeky, and even had it’s emotional moments. I really liked the characters and friendships. Great story and I would recommend.

  1. Lovely review, Ashley! This book sounds like such a sweet read, I’m glad you enjoyed it, but it’s a bit of a shame about the unresolved ending :/ thank you for sharing! ❤ ❤

  2. I love that you were into this one despite not being into comics or superheros. That would keep me from reading this one normally, too. I’m sorry it didn’t resolve more for you, though. Great review!
