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)....

Comics Will Break Your Heart Reviews
This wasn't a bad book but personally I was disappointed. It wasn't nearly as shippy or feelsy as I hoped and I didn't think Miriam's friend group was very strong either. I did like that it was set in Canada and seemed very Canadian (to this American at least). I haven't read many books set in Canada and I found the slight cultural differences interesting. I don't need a lot of plot to enjoy a book but I do need to feel connected to the characters and I didn't, which made the story drag. It also ...more
This book was fun read and delved into comic book culture in an interesting way. I really enjoyed the characters, but I also felt lime it didn’t really say much. It was pretty predictable and not much really got resolved. I’m torn about that, but I kinda liked it because it did seem somewhat realistic because of that.
Some of the conversations seemed a little unrealistic, but it didn’t really detract too much from the story, but it could be something to work on.
All in all, an entertain ...more

Comics Will Break Your Heart was an adorable story with hattips to geeks of all kinds - from the greats of British literature to, obviously, comic book fans! The plot is loosely based on Romeo and Juliet, only the two families in question are descendents of patriarchs who together birthed one of the greatest comic book franchises of all time, only to have a bitter falling out.
Mir and Weldon are both likable characters, young people approaching the end ...more
I should probably write something. This book came out the 12th. I finished late the 13th. I may like this book a little bit. This is the fluffy goodness I love. Mir did annoy me at points, so did Weldon. Weldon's mom is weird. Evan is a saint. Raleigh...I'm not sure what to say about her. Jamie is a half a character at best. And what happened to berg? We stop seeing him like halfway through the book. You think we would at least hear about a family friend again. I wish we got more of the side cha ...more
3.5 stars - Cute read but there was one nagging question that was never answered and OCD-me needed it answered (view spoiler)[How much was the settlement paid to Stella and where the heck did it go??? (hide spoiler)] . It stayed true to the comic genre and never appeared fake so major props for that :)
“Comics Will Break Your Heart” was a book I got at YALLFest and was really looking forward to. The premise of two teenagers—who have an ongoing “family feud”— meeting and potentially falling in love (with the addition of comic books) sounded like so much fun! I was super excited to jump into the book, but I was sadly disappointed. I didn’t love this book nearly as much as I was hoping to.
I do stand by the fact that this was a very original plot, what with the comic book writing and all, but it w ...more
I'm still not sure whether to give this a 2 or a 3 star rating so I'm leaving it blank for now. Anyway, full review to come soon, I guess. Sigh.
A paradox of a book - I wanted to read it quickly to find out how it ends but I didn't want it to end. A sweet and gentle slow burn romance that made my heart happy. As with most comics, it was a self contained story but I closed it hoping for a sequel.
