About the Author

Tom King, Lord King of Bridgwater CH, is a British politician who has served in Parliament since 1970. He was made a life peer in 2001.


"While much of the story is told in a dead-on, entertaining style that pays homage to the romance comics of the 1950s, the elements of mystery and horror that emerge make the book much more than a nostalgic indulgence. The writing is clever and builds tension throughout, while the art is impeccable in its blend of colors, linework, and style, covering settings from World War I era France to the Old West in America well. Rich themes and deep questions underpin Joan's adventures, as about the true nature of love, the need for it, and the desire for independence and self-realization...Love Everlasting Volume 1 is a fascinating romantic horror story about a woman who shifts between lives." --Foreword Reviews
"The expressive strokes of Charretier's art here have nostalgic warmth, but they're more connected to the retro-modern cartooning of, say, Batman Adventures than actual art from any of those doe-eyed comics of yesteryear. This feels like then, but it's deeply rooted in now, which makes it the ideal aesthetic for this meta take... King's interest, as it's often been, is deconstruction, and the narrative necessarily takes some repetition to achieve it. However, certain chapters function as gripping romances on their own merits, even as they advance toward a conceptual, distressing, but ultimately compelling culmination." --Booklist
"Love Everlasting is a perfectly crafted mystery from the brilliant mind of Tom King, like an everlasting episode of The Twilight Zone where Elsa Charretier shows us all she can draw EVERYTHING and she does it with apparent ease. Just a wonderful book by two of the best creators in comics!" --Francesco Francavilla
"King (Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow) and Charretier's (Department of Truth, Vol. 3) gripping mystery subverts the romance-comic genre but still delivers genuine romantic melodrama. An uncommonly compelling first volume." --Library Journal (starred review)
"Strong writing, impeccable art, and a style of storytelling that is wholly original." --AIPT
"Feels like an homage and a slight twist to the romance comic all feels updated and fits modern comics." --Graphic Policy
