Denied love. It's a story that we hear about every once in a while. But never does it become a less sad affair. Bingo Love has its own unique version though. Hazel and Mari met when they were young, but being from a conservative African-American community in 1963 meant that their relationship was pretty much doomed to cause an uproar. As Mari speaks from the future, she looks back on this time with a bittersweet fondness. Flash forward many years, and things have changed, both of these, now aging woman, are free to be honest. That doesn't mean it is easy though, they have families, but they are families that are able to accept things over time. Bingo Love has a generally warm tone thanks to the loving voice of Mari, and the art with its sweet designs and colours. The relationship of these two women may have started in their youth, but it only truly began in their golden years, thus distinguishing this comic further from other romance titles. Still the primary audience for this title is young adults, as the style will appeal more to them. This is a truly lovely story.
