One of the best stories of love and remembrance I've seen on comics.
Andrew Crowley
It deals with the realism of modern relationships in such a way as to suggest an Americanized Milan Kundera.

I picked this up in my local comic shop in desperate need of some new reading material and it didn't disappoint one bit. Not only was the story engaging, but the illustration work was off the chain. Lust or love? YOU decide...

Format: Paperback
Love Buzz is a phenomenal work, more than a coming of age story. It deals with the realism of modern relationships in such a way as to suggest an Americanized Milan Kundera. Sound lofty? Hardly.
Scripted by Len Wallace, we meet the two young adults as they fall in and out of love, thrashing about to keep adrift in the seas of change. Some brilliant pieces of dialogue give the tale a very human touch, very poignant and identifiable.
The art, handled primarily by Michelle Silva, is confident. At times dreamy and schizophrenic, and at times daftly minimalistic, Silva's hand knows how to give the words a visual depth seemingly well beyond the years of the creators involved. Dave Tuney, the secondary artist, handles the cartoony sequences, the artwork of the male lead within the story proper, and he does so with a brushy passion, beseeching influence from outside the realms of popular sequential art.

Love Buzz is a wonderful book, composed on many different levels and with the singular aim of beautifully expressing just exactly how, in the end, we really are all completely lost when it comes to the battle of the sexes.

Len Wallace is a relative newcomer to the world of comics. His first major work comes with a voice fully developed and he creates characters that are endearing and realistic. Like Craig Thompson's Blankets, Wallace explores the pain and sorrows of growing up as well as the joys and heartbreaks of first romances. The use of art styles and tropes from classic comics such as Tintin, The Spirit, and Batman add charm and depth to the book while being sly, knowing winks to comic fans already familiar with those works. Wallace's breezy and clever dialog makes for an engrossing read. One of the best stories of love and remembrance I've seen on comics. I will most definitely pick up anything Wallace writes.

This book is a love story we all have eperienced, however did not have the ability to express. It bring back memories and touches you in the heart. It is a book you can not put down. I work with teens very day and will use this book to open up discussions. It relates to adults as well. It is a must read book. Mr. Wallace is very talented writer and hope another book comes out soon.

Amazon won't let me give this sad piece of drek no stars, so I guess I'll have to settle with just one star, but that really is over rating it. I'm not someone hopelessly lost in the self-aggrandizing, ever-shrinking, comics sub-culture, as it sounds like the other reviewers of this book are. All I'm looking for is something good to read that entertains me... and let me assure you, "Love Buzz" would make fine bird cage liner for anyone short on old newspapers for Polly's cage. I don't even know where to begin here... how about the pathetic main character, Norm Raymer? A character that is obviously autobiographical and an all to prevalent archetype in today's culture... I call them, "The Un-Men". They are the 20, 30, 40 and even 50-somthing-males who still have an unhealthy, pre-pubescent interest in comic books and super heroes, which prevents them from ever fully developing into men. This is a story of one such "man". It's ironic; the least "super-heroy" people on the planet are obsessed with men in tights, battling each other with super-powers. I don't know which is worse; the "Un-Men" or the sick-and-dying comic industry which continues to pump out endless smack for these permanently, pre-pubescent-locked people to digest? And, not to get sidetracked here, but I hope Len N. Wallace didn't give up his day job for a "career" in comics (lol, as if anyone really makes a living or has a "career" in comics anymore. Comic artists and writers today all suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, whether they acknowledge it or not). His writing is lackluster. His pacing at times is manic. He's either trying too hard to sound like Kevin Smith's overdone style, or his writing sounds like edited together rants he taped of himself and whom ever he tortured over the years with his comic-geek-dom.Read more ›
