Notes on This Title
“This was, in my opinion, by far the best monthly comic to come out this year. Gillman did such an incredible job of capturing the show’s voice and Farina did an equally great job of capturing its visual voice. It was like watching episodes of the show, but we got the bonus of seeing the non-binary character Stevonnie being written by a non-binary person, which resulted in my favorite single issue of any comic of the year, the one where Stevonnie and Kiki go to a school dance together.” (Source: Autostraddle)
