Every page of this book is filled with extra sharp graphics, some never see before. A wonderful collection of designs, very bright, clean and well done. Love Sick has combined enjoyable humor with fine graphics (a few sleazy pics too) but all is in good fun for a cute look at a the smoldering look of Love, Lust and Marriage.

Love Sick was equally enjoyable as part of the trilogy of "Pop-Ink" graphic books: "Happy Kitty Bunny Pony" and "Goth-Icky" all in my estimation were well done. Enjoyable good fun! All books featured the best and sharpest graphic collection - the best I've ever seen.

I love all the books in this series. It will only appeal to those like me with a pop kitsch esthetic though, and if you have a retro sense of humor you will adore this series. Lots of the pages would be great wall art in frames.

I was worried I wouldn't like this one as much as "Happy Kitty Bunny Pony", but I think I might even like it more. The artwork is gorgeous (and bizarre at times) and funny in its own right, but Mike's comments send it over the edge into pure hilarity. While it may not have the let's-all-pass-it-around-and-laugh potential of HKBP, it's well worth the purchase price. Of the 3 Pop ink-Mike Nelson books I've read, I think this one has the best writing and the art is as good as HKBP.

Mike Nelson is a comic genius, clearly, but this book is sort of unsalvageable. If this was a book of actual images and objects that have been created and used about "love, lust and marriage" and then Mike were to write comments on each of them, that would be a good book, it would be interesting, and significant and maybe even insightful. But as far as I can tell, that's not even what the book is, it seems that it's a bunch of random images created by a company (popart?), not over the course of the last century, as the book seems to imply, but over the last few decades, and the objects were created, apparently, as parodies of real pieces of media, and now the book makes fun of these parodies, which were never even intended to be serious, originally. It's complicated, but mostly it's not very good. The paper is good, the binding is good, the quality is fine, and the (very short) mike nelson comments are good, but this book could be made into an amusing flashplayer webpage, and really probably should be. If you need the complete Mike Nelson collection, though, you should buy it.
