I would like to take a moment to thank my little brother for introducing me to this comic.

This comic was unexpectedly amazing and gave me a complete range of emotion from awww, frustration to eye rolling to annoyance and finally to omg. So let’s begin.

Mags is an extremely frustrating character to read. She allows her insecurities to make other people’s decisions as if no one has a mind of their own. She literally does it throughout the entire first season and I swear if someone doesn’t put her in her place, I will be upset because the story is cute and written really well.

Gallagher was able build a really good story and keep me interested. However, do not be fooled by the name. This comic is romance driven and with not a whole lot of action. When the action does happen, it isn’t as explosive as you would want. Mags makes a lot of basic moves that for a while there you don’t understand her hype.
