Tinder matches go wrong all the time — but not like this.

Every young person knows that most matches one finds on Tinder likely harbor some combination of dubious intentions, dubious life goals, and dubious (if not absent) sources of income. The Gods seem to want to prove this truism wrong when Moa — broke, depressed, and living with a group of transients above an old store — matches with a very famous celebrity on the popular hook-up site.

Not only does the 53-year-old like Moa — he also immediately gives her the support, validation, and motivation that not even her therapist can provide. The older man seems to genuinely believe in her, and even encourages her artistic ambition by offering financial support. However, Moa soon discovers that there are strings attached, and her would-be savior is not motivated purely by philanthropy, as the relationship grows more and more troubling.

Drawn in a gorgeously contemporary style that echoes de Chirico and '80s design, Romanova delivers a riveting work of autobiography. Thought-provoking, funny, and highly relatable, Goblin Girl announces Romanova as a powerful new voice in contemporary graphic novels.
