From goodreads:
You wouldn’t expect Nate and Charlie to be friends. Charlie’s the laid-back captain of the basketball team, and Nate is the neurotic, scheming president of the robotics club. But they are friends, however unlikely—until Nate declares war on the cheerleaders. At stake is funding that will either cover a robotics competition or new cheerleading uniforms—but not both.

It's only going to get worse: after both parties are stripped of their funding on grounds of abominable misbehavior, Nate enrolls the club's robot in a battlebot competition in a desperate bid for prize money. Bad sportsmanship? Sure. Chainsaws? Why not. Running away from home on Thanksgiving to illicitly enter a televised robot death match? Of course!

In Faith Erin Hicks' and Prudence Shen's world of high school class warfare and robot death matches, Nothing can possibly go wrong.
Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong is a web comic that found its way to the presses and will be available in May.  It is refreshing and entertaining.  A series of fun ocurrences are all around the book which makes the comic easy and effortless to read.  The story puts an unlikely group of people together and that brings something different to the table, making the reader wonder constantly what could be the possible outcome of the story. I enjoyed reading Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong.  It would be interesting to see a short series with the daily  lives of these characters.

Illustrations are in black and white and while reading I never felt a need for color.  Illustrations are well drawn and have their own character and individuality. More nice illustrations can be seen on Faith Erin Hicks' webpage.  Visit it so you can get a notion of this cartoonist's work.

I recommend this comic for YA readers.

    1. Don't you find horrible when black and white is used but the illustration have no details? Sometimes that happens with manga and it gets difficult to understand the illustration.

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel. Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
