Bingo Love Gets a 2nd Printing Before First Hits the Shelf

Bingo Love—the original graphic novel created and written by Tee Franklin, with art by Jenn St-Onge, colors by Joy San, and cover art by Genevieve FT—is being rushed back to print by Image Comics to keep up with overwhelming support from fans and retailers.

Bingo Love is a story about two Queer, Black women and the love between them that spans decades. It explores the complications of coming out at an older age and how that decision affects their families’ lives.

Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray are two young, Black girls who meet at church bingo in 1963 and eventually fall in love…but in this time period, their love was not accepted. Hazel and Mari are broken up by their families’ “shame” and go on to marry and have families of their own. Almost 50 years later—in the fever pitch of church bingo—Mari and Hazel are reunited and rediscover the love they have for each other, even though they both are still married.

Bingo Love, 2nd printing (Diamond Code DEC170648, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0750-6) and will be available on Wednesday, March 14th. Bingo Love‘s first printing will be available February 14th.
