    You should read it because I'm telling you to" not good enough? The first issue was treated like an establishing shot. Here's the visuals, here's the tones, here's the cast of characters and here's the premise. The second issue kind of drops you straight into the action and it escalates quickly. That sudden spur of excitment hits you when you read the book. The only way I know how to explain it is by quoting one of the greatest poets of the 21st century. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 23, 2019

    Going to the Chapel #2 continues what is proving to be a hilarious romp of a comic, one that fearlessly ups the ante and finds a sweet spot between absurd and dysfunctional for its characters. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Oct 24, 2019

    What started as one story, has somehow split in to two and is slowly forming back in to one. It's really neat to watch it unfold. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Stephanie Pouliotte Oct 23, 2019

    The artwork continues to be stellar, and there is some great (and liberal) use of visual sound effects, especially during the first confrontation with the police. The panel layout is straightforward and consistent by necessity, as it serves to draw attention to the absurdity by letting it play out clearly and you rely on that consistent structure to help navigate the chaos. Liz Kramer ties the whole thing together with a distinctive palette, slipping the complimentary faded yellow/reddish purple into every detail. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Grant DeArmitt Oct 23, 2019

    GOING TO THE CHAPEL is everything you'd want from an indie book: a self-contained story that puts character over crossover and soul over spinoffs. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - kevin hoskinson Oct 27, 2019

    Going To The Chapel is easily one of my favorite new series hitting the shelves, and I'm not alone. Recently, actor and stand-up comic Patton Oswalt has given it his stamp of approval, and it's not hard to see why. It's super funny, action-packed, has great characters, and a unique and exciting premise. Issue #2 takes the story to the next level, and much like the first issue, it just doesn't let up. The pacing is perfect, giving you just the right amount of character moments, comedy, and action. It's a perfect combination, and you really need to experience it for yourself. Go buy this book!!

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Oct 23, 2019

    'Going to the Chapel' #2 opens up this wacky caper with more background and quirky funny characters. Each issue so far has been fast-paced with unexpected turns which saves this heist-gone-wrong homage from feeling all-too-familiar. There's some clever subversive commentary on the reliance on social media but it's really just a fun crime comedy that frankly keeps you wanting more.  Read Full Review

    Oh god, I can't get enough of this stuff. It's like watching a dysfunctional animated sitcom where the writers actually use their brains. The family is so hilarious with all of their antics. I could laugh out loud if there were voices in these. For that matter, this is one of the few comics that's like reading anyone's first issue. People know about the premise in the first pages without backtracking and without anyone actually hammering it into their heads. Gotta say that the surprises that come up genuinely hit home. Who would've thought having a phone with no call features could be both useful and had joke potential. Emily is the one wild card where anything can go with her; I mean even she doesn't know what she's doing half the time. Sh more
