Being a teenage witch—or rock star—is tougher than it looks! But maybe enemies can become friends…or more? Flying brooms and electric guitars set hearts aflame in this fantastically fizzy graphic novel.

When Margot meets Elena, emotions run high, magic is in the air, and doughnuts...float? One is a stressed-out witch trying to get her potions business off the ground, the other is a struggling rock musician whose band is going nowhere. Neither of them are having a good time! No wonder things quickly escalate from words to literal sparks flying when they first meet. Could this be the start of a delicious new relationship...or is a bad-luck curse leading them to certain doom?
 
Balazs Lorinczi is an illustrator and graphic novelist with some animation and filmmaking background. He grew up in Hungary but now lives in Dundee, Scotland.
A GLAAD Media Award Nominee!

Selected for the TLA Maverick Graphic Novel 2023 Reading List!


"Sweet and sapphic in every way, Doughnuts and Doom is everything my gay, witchy, baked-good-loving heart could ever want." — Sam Maggs, author of Tell No Tales: Pirates of the Southern Seas

"This fast-paced enemies-to-lovers romance, filled with magic, music, and pastries, is an upbeat confection." Publishers Weekly

"Lorinczi’s whimsical illustration style and pastel blue-and-pink color scheme give this adventure a light and cozy feel... a quick and sweet supernatural romance." Kirkus Reviews

"A charming, lighthearted romantic comedy with supernatural flair." Foreword Reviews

"Readers will enjoy the creative paneling that showcases Margot’s airborne adventures on her broom, Stanley’s endearing antics, and the excited thrum of the girls’ climactic musical performance...A pleasant, additional purchase to round out YA graphic novel collections." School Library Journal
