    Eva and Max are two people who start messaging each other on a dating app and then they meet in real life without realizing that they are those same people who have been talking online this whole time. It's a classic trope, but it's always a good one! I loved the panels of this graphic novel, the attention to the colors and the details is outstanding. I wanted a bit more from the story, especially towards the ending, but it was still an enjoyable read.

    Los dibujos son preciosos y la historia tenía mucho potencial, pero las escenas no terminan de estar bien planteadas en cuanto a la información que aportan y por momentos estaba confusa. Tampoco me convenció el climax del final que me pareció un poco salido de la nada y con una resolución apurada y sin mucho fundamento. Por último, (view spoiler)[ tanto la parte abusiva de la relación de Max como el trato de la madre de Eva me parecieron mal llevados e innecesarios para lo poco que se profundiza Los dibujos son preciosos y la historia tenía mucho potencial, pero las escenas no terminan de estar bien planteadas en cuanto a la información que aportan y por momentos estaba confusa.

Por último, (view spoiler)[ tanto la parte abusiva de la relación de Max como el trato de la madre de Eva me parecieron mal llevados e innecesarios para lo poco que se profundiza en ellos (hide spoiler)] . En general, creo que todos los personajes son muy interesantes y la ilustradora consigue darles mucha vida y expresividad, por lo que es una pena que la historia no terminara de estar a la altura.

Max is able to utilize working at Virtually Yours to help himself heal and find purpose in his life. After a number of near misses in real life, they finally meet without realizing that they are interacting through the app. I really enjoyed all the different issues this graphic novel explored, and loved seeing the relationship building between Eva and Max. I always appreciate when there's diversity in a story without it feeling forced and this one was perfect in that aspect. I loved all of the characters and how they were individual and unique, there are some side characters I'd love to see explored more in their own stories.

    This book was on my summer reading list and when I flipped through initially, I didn't think I'd like it based on all the pursed lips, talking heads, static poses, and straight lines. But it is surprisingly enjoyable as far as romcoms go. Think How to Lose a Guy in 10 days mixed with You've Got Mail, but a bit healthier with sadder, poorer millennial protagonists. It's got some clunky dialogue here and there but overall the tone is very sweet and the pacing is great.

I'd definitely recommend this one.

    I really enjoyed this for a number of reasons, primary among them, it depicts people as real. This is the second book with a romantic flair that included a male who was an domestic abuse survivor. As a raging feminist, I think this is so important. Inequality hurts everyone and the more male representation of naming, claiming, and healthy processing of domestic violence the better. I hope if 2020 has taught our collective whole anything it's that our well being is connected and communal.

    I would rate this a 3.5. It follows child star Max as he navigates his career and rough divorce along with Eva who’s trying to find a new job. Max’s wife is absolutely horrible to him by being controlling, physically and verbally abusive. On the other hand, Eva’s mother is constantly nagging her to find a job, criticizing her choice when she lands one and makes her feel like she’s going to be an old maiden if she doesn’t find a man.

The story is pretty short and centers around a dating app match that goes sort of wrong, so it moves relatively fast. I’d recommend checking this out and being prepared to hate his wife and her mom.

    Cute rom-com for the virtual age with a lot of diversity (including mention of abusive relationships where the women are the abusers which doesn't get brought up often in media) but nothing really memorable or special story-wise. Max and Eva (and Adam/Andy) just didn't have a ton of chemistry to me.

    Reminds me of you got mail. Good color artwork. Prime freebie. A sort of romantic comedy. Two people share an online relationship and hang out in real life without realizing the connection. There will be a happy ending.

    Virtually Yours is basically a graphic novel following the classic chick flick plot line of two people don't realise that they are messaging each other but also know each other in real life. It has the nice touch of dealing with domestic abuse with the male lead being the victim and having a diverse cast. It dealt with family problems and career pressure too. The art also is absolutely lovely. However it has one major major weakness and that is the pacing is way too fast.

Trying cram in a movie plot line into 111 pages (some of which were not the story) just didn't work. There were time jumps that I simply just didn't know happened until two or three pages after the fact. It missed out the fluffy lovely moments in romance flicks and lit. The side characters felt like they needed fleshing out a bit more. What actually happened in the Christmas Loop? It just needed to be longer. Or a series. Which is a shame because I'd love to see romance comics making a proper comeback into publishing.

    Friendships and Life Lessons Really enjoyed this comic. Addresses friendships when you least expected. Also addressed male domestic , which is a rare topic for comics and books in general.

    this was brilliant! omg. it was like the comic version of a hallmark movie or every cute romance novel i've read where the main characters are BIPOC (best friend is Black and got her hair tied up). it was cute. it had all of the elements of a romance novel but in comic form. i would read more romance novels if they were written in comic form.

    Very cute, but a little too predictable and a bit of wish fulfillment in the main characters. They’re both so exceedingly over-the-top good at their new jobs it’s a bit unbelievable.

    A Romcom in Comic Form I enjoyed reading this, what a great story! It reads like a Romcom, all the characters have thier own personalities none of them felt shoehorned, these characters are very believable. There are some touching moments and some really funny moments that get captured so well in the writing and art. I would love it if they did a sequel with the same characters. There is part of the story(I won't spoil) that played out off the pages off the pages, I fell it was a missed opportun A Romcom in Comic Form I enjoyed reading this, what a great story!

    A good quick read I really enjoyed this story, I could see this being adapted into a movie or TV show. If I had one gripe, it's that it didn't go super in depth with the two leads relationship. We mostly got the gist of what happened. Maybe if this was novel or a TV show we would get more in depth with their relationship. Still an enjoyable read.

    The representation, themes and relationships were all just so well executed. The main character is a cute, body positive, confident woman of colour who has really positive and respectful friendships, and it was such a nice change from other tropes you often see.

    This graphic novel was a fun read which also had some thoughtful themes. At first it seems to be a merely cute idea -- a woman just out of university who is interested in focusing on her career, whose family is strongly encouraging her to be getting married and starting a family of her own, is introduced to a phone app which allows her to fake having a boyfriend.

At first it seems to be a merely cute idea -- a woman just out of university who is interested in focusing on her career, whose family is strongly encouraging her to be getting married and starting a family of her own, is introduced to a phone app which allows her to fake having a boyfriend. However, Holt's characters are fleshed out humans and not just stereotypes, and this leads to complications and an engaging story which touches on topics relevant to a lot of different kinds of relationships. It also makes great use of presenting realistic representations of how we're all using technology in our everyday lives, and especially in our social lives. And, it acknowledges some of the unfortunate race and gender discrimination American culture still has, while presenting a great view of how people can treat each other respectfully. One thing I was very worried about when reading it was that I felt like I could see a relationship coming for the main character and I was getting pre-irritated about it because I believe the world is severely lacking in stories of adults who are single and happy and overrun by stories of people who are happy being single who end up in romances. If you're like me, I think you will enjoy this book because things are just handled so well that I had no place for that pre-irritation to go. Virtually Yours is fun and just plain nice. A great read during these stressful times.
