Bingo Love is an original graphic novel created and written by Tee Franklin, with art by Jenn St-Onge, and colors by Joy San and follows the love story of two Queer, Black women and the love between them that spans decades.
When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.
Bingo Love explores the complications of coming out at an older age and how that decision affects their families’ lives.
Bingo Love, Vol. 1: Jackpot Edition (ISBN: 978-1534309838) will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, November 7th and in bookstores on Tuesday, November 13th.
