Numerous website have been piling on the compliments for the graphic novel. “Sweetie stands out in a comic book store full of hundreds of books,” Talking Comics commented. “Part Kungfu Superhero, part fangirl, the book takes a genre often best for adults and makes it its own by ditching the blood and death that normally go with hostage situations and video game style boss battles.” And according to the School Library Journal, “Sweetie balances the thrill of an action hero story with a slice of life that both readers young and old will enjoy.”
