Review: Croquette & Empanada: The Book Romeo Would Have Given Juliet by Ana Oncina

A classic love story: doughy appetizer boy meets doughy appetizer girl. Together they exist in a world cohabited by humans.

Croquette is looking for love—his sweet, silly other half.  Empanada hopes she can find someone who accepts her for who she is. It’s a match made in tasty, tasty heaven. Internationally bestselling author Ana Oncina’s Croquette & Empanada explores modern love and domesticity with charming comics. Enjoy the antics of this adorable, culinary couple as they navigate romance and cohabitation, from deciding to move in together to purchasing their first pet.

First of all, I want to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was drawn to this comic because the author is Spanish and really want to read more books by Spanish authors. I would like to reread this in Spanish.

This comic is about the relationship of Croquette and Empanada and all the little things that you can love or annoy you about living together and being a couple.

I quite enjoyed this collection but I still don't really understand why Croquette and Empanada are portrayed that way while the rest of the world is normal and populated with humans. That said, I really liked the art style, it is cute and quirky, exactly what I love in these types of comics. 

Some comics were really funny, relatable and so, so cute! Spain is my favourite country and I love eating tapas (especially patatas bravas and croquetas) when I'm there. I do wish there were more Spanish influences in the story but I guess this makes it more universal.

I recommend this book to everyone who want to read a fun, short collection of comics about little moments in a relationship. 3 stars! Will read more by Ana Oncina in the future!
