Welcome back to Waiting on the Trade, a comics book club for people who don’t have time for monthly comics!

In this episode, guest host Bryce Manning lets Netflix’s suggestion algorithm be our guide, as we discuss the first volume of Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper.

This Month’s Discussion Questions

  3. How is Nick and Charlie’s relationship a positive example of a same-sex relationship?
