“LIEBESTRASSE feels like an extremely needed graphic novel that has a lot of lessons that are still relevant and timely today.”–PRIDE
“The real strength of LIEBESTRASSE: it’s a simple and quiet period piece that starkly juxtaposes our current political climate, while also being eerily similar in ways that are all too easy to forget. These parallels are not an explicit part of the story, but they don’t have to be—the bare facts of the reality faced by these queer men makes their story even more frighteningly relevant.”–Boing Boing
“LIEBESTRASSE is one of the most human and affecting graphic novels I’ve been lucky enough to read in recent years. This is the kind of comic that really shows the full potential of what this medium we love can do!” –Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Gideon Falls)
“A story both tragic and uplifting which illustrates something we all sadly forget; that in the midst of history, lives are happening.” –Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets)
“Lockard enjoyably balances establishing the real world of 1930s Berlin with prioritizing the sultry feel of the fictional romance. The art is rendered in strong, inky lines by Fish with colorist Héctor Barros’s gentle full-color palette.” — Publishers Weekly
