About this from goodreads:

Jane's new in town. When she wipes out on her skateboard right in front of Jack's food cart, she finds herself agreeing to go on a date with him. Jane's psyched that her love life is taking a turn for the friskier, but it turns out that Jack has a spotty romantic history, to put it mildly. Cue the Cute Girl Network — a phone tree information-pooling group of local single women. Poor Jane is about to learn every detail of Jack's past misadventures… whether she wants to or not. Will love prevail?

In this graphic novel from Greg Means, Americus author MK Reed, and Joe Flood, the illustrator of Orcs, comes a fast, witty, and sweet romantic comedy that is actually funny, and actually romantic.

Graphic Novels in black and white is popular this days and possibly necessary to keep comics in budget. A lot of black and white comics are hitting the shelves and quite frankly they are doing an excellent job. As I have said plenty of times in this blog, colors are not a necessity to enhance good stories. The cute girl network follows the blank and white trend of comics with good entertaining stories.

Jane and Jack are the MCs of this urban story. They find themselves drawn to each other from the first time. She is a free spirited skater girl and he is a guy with a low income job selling soup from a street cart. Jack is not the smartest, or the most attentive or excels in anything but he grows attached to Jane and at least strives for not making an idiot of himself everyday. This works until the NETWORK gets in their lives and doubts a plenty get inside Jane’s mind. What is the NETWORK? you might say. Well, you definitely need to grab this graphic novel to find out and that way you get to know if these lovebirds work out.

The dialog is smart and fun, even witty in some cases. Art is ok and cartoonish. For all of you book devourers, there is a scene that is a total treat. Jane has book lover friends! And they get to read the thoughts of these gals about a favorite sparkly vampire of mine.

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&#…
