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
WoW! This book was amazing and so very unique and creative. I really loved it. The story follows Miriam, a young girl that lives with her mom and is trying hard all the time to make ends meet. Miriam's grandfather was the co-creator of the comic The Tomorrow Men but sold the rights in the 1960's for hardly anything. The Tomorrow Men went on to become more famous and worth a fortune. Miriam meets a new cute boy in town and later finds out that he is the grandson to co-creator that bought the righ ...more
So I decided to read this book in the spirit of The Avengers movie and I wanted something nerdy and related to comics and this seemed perfect for this mood
Sadly it wasn't that good, I mean the story is fine but nothing was really happening and I couldn't get myself to like any of the characters, I was really sad that Evan never got his shot but I was really bored and uninterested through out the story, I guess I wanted something more of ( Geekerella ) vibe
So the story is about Mir and ...more
3.5☆ but I rounded up. The plot was good, but a few of the characters annoyed me. It's still worth a read though.
Mir’s grandfather sold the rights to the comic he co-created for next to nothing. Now the comic is mega popular and Mir feels cheated.
Weldon’s grandfather also co-created that comic and created Warrick Studio’s. But Weldon after some trouble at school gets shipped off to his aunt and uncles for the summer.
I really loved this one! Possibly because I’ve slowly been getting into comics and this heavily involved comics. The relationships we great in this I felt like they were very authentic. And I l ...more
Review originally posted at Mostly YA Lit:
Comics Will Break Your Heart is an unusual YA that discusses issues of comic book creation, inheritance, small-town poverty, and class issues. Miriam is the granddaughter of Micah Kendrick, the co-creator and illustrator of the Tomorrow Men, a huge, classic comic. Unfortunately, Micah sold the rights to the Tomorrow Men to the other co-creator, Joseph Warrick, for a mere pittance. Miriam’s grandfather spent his life trying to get the rights back – or at ...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 :)
I needed this so badly.
Equal parts contemporary YA romance and geeky comic booky nerdom, Comics Will Break Your Heart got me out of a YA funk. And for that, I'm thankful.
I'm not much of a reviewer on these things. I don't want to rehash the plot, which I enjoyed. The characters, they were great. I was pulling for them to the very end. Oh and the end, it didn't disappoint either.
I highly recommend this book to readers of Rainbow Rowell, Jeff Zentner, Becky Albedontknowhowtospellhername, and the l ...more
Actual rating: 4.5 ★
When I first read the synopsis for Comics Will Break Your Heart, I thought that it was just my typical romance story that was filled with angst and witty banter that comes with the trope. I mean, what was I to expect? There’s a heroine, a love interest, and an age-long conflict / tension. That, to me, screamed HATE TO LOVE. Is it just me? After a more thorough research, though, I found that it was an easy favorite for contemporary readers who are in the market for stories tha ...more
