    Update! Here's my full review: https://bookishrealmreviews.blogspot.... This!!! I’m so glad that I found this comic! It was so good and it’s only the first issue. I ADORED BB as a main character and I really feel for all the stuff she has to deal with in her family. I love that this comic also recognizes and celebrates LGBT teens. I think that BB may identify as gender queer. It’s not quite clear just yet. I feel like it’s going to be interesting as the author begins to explore her relationship Update!

I think that BB may identify as gender queer. It’s not quite clear just yet. I feel like it’s going to be interesting as the author begins to explore her relationship with her father more especially since he comes off as controlling and constantly forces BB to maintain the image of a good girl. This is one that I will be keeping up with as the single issues release. Full review coming soon.

All b.b. really wants to do is be able to travel the country—as broken as it is—and broadcast her free radio station, one that is as cheerful and free as she someday wants to be. But there are forces in her life that refuse to ever let that happen. This series takes all of society’s expectations of young ladies and brings that discussion to the forefront. All the pressure it brings with it, and how dehumanizing it can feel when repeatedly told to be something you feel like you’re not." Check out my full review over at Word of the Nerd

    While Dunlap's art has some of the most beautiful palettes and designs I've ever seen in a comic, I wasn't completely sold on the story. This first issue attempts to deliver a LOT of big picture worldbuilding but I was more interested in b.b. Free's immediate surroundings. Why does she have a pet alligator? What is an amigx? What exactly is her father's place in the community? Unfortunately, much of the comic leaves these essential questions unanswered and ended up feeling like a history While Dunlap's art has some of the most beautiful palettes and designs I've ever seen in a comic, I wasn't completely sold on the story.

First issues have to juggle a lot. I get that. I'm interested to see what b.b. gets up to next and will probably purchase issue #2, but so far I'm a little underwhelmed.

    Found this before the hype sets in! But I think it's gonna deserve some hype. I really liked the beginnings of lore about the way the world is set up, as DC the kick-butt female lead who just wants to be allowed to grow and live her own life. Three drawings and colors were beautiful, too. Who doesn't like a friendly yellow pet alligator? Bought the next installation soon as I finished

    Rarely do I find Latinx writers and protagonists (especially if they are also LQBTQ+)! I’m always on the search for more because we are out there and many. The art is absolutely stunning and I am intrigued. This story has a lot of potential. I shall b.b free when I get my hands on the volume in 2020! Bring on more sci-fi and meddling kids, gracias.

    Loved Dunlap's art style and color schemes. The story looks promising. Some of bb's angst looks like misplaced teen stuff and some of it looks like it comes from her family situation. I like bb and Chulita's camaraderie. Looking forward to the reveals.

    The artwork is beautiful and I'm intrigued by where this story is going. This mysterious first part sets the scene for what I'm sure will be a very engaging series. Thanks to Book Studios for giving me a digital sneak peak!

    For starters the art was really beautiful. The world surrounding our main character looked amazing and was so intriguing. However the story just didn’t meld with me. It felt like the story just didn’t make the right first move to keep me interested. Not sure if I will continue or not.

    premise has potential - nothing was set up or explained very well. wanted a little more exposition to explain things like her relationship with her father.

    Beautiful artwork and the world building seems intriguing and mysterious. The dialogue adds to the personality and atmosphere. Overall, this issue was interesting.
