Love Everlasting #11 Review:
We finally start to get some answers about what’s going on in this series as the meta-romance comic turns the focus to the cowboy who has been pursuing Joan this whole time.
“The flip here is it seems like we’re turning the series from focusing on Joan to focusing on the origin of our cowboy who has been hunting her this entire time,” said host Alex Zalben. “At least that’s my supposition here. Very surprising. I really thought we had another two issues left of the series, but I think it’s going to go on for a long time instead.”
Tyler agreed that he thought the series would end with issue #12, but since it is ongoing, “That’s really exciting because who knows where this could go. This has been such a fun read each [month], it’s a great homage to romance comics, really well-told versions of that, while at the same time having this underlying, ongoing fantastical premise that I think is really intriguing.”
Pete LePage was “a little worried about the ending… I want this to land well. But it continues to be very interesting and have really solid art.”
“Elsa Charretier’s art is fantastic,” added Zalben. “In the vein of Darwyn Cooke, obviously channeling romance comic books as well… Really good book, [but] I don’t know how much more this I can take. I need to start getting some answers. I can’t take this… Everlasting.”
