    Overall though, while it asks some fairly big questions about the nature of trust and the fragile nature of family, Snow Blind ends up being an incredibly intimate story about young Teddy's quest for truth.  How far do the bonds of family stretch, even when their entire existence has been built on a foundation of lies?  This final issue provides the chilling answer to that particular question, and does so with both flair and stark realism.  A fascinating, gripping and through-provoking crime thriller from start to finish, Snow Blind has staked its early claim to being one of the best titles of 2016.

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Mar 11, 2016

    But, overall, this is an enjoyable pulp romp that feels dutifully aware of its heritage without getting too tangled in the tropes of genre. Masters and Jenkins are clearly both strong storytellers and the wild, wilful vibe of this book pulls it along and makes for quite compulsive reading. What's more, the intricate and taciturn storytelling style means that this is definitely a story that reads better in one sitting than it does waiting for it monthly, and the final confrontation felt loaded with much more anticipation re-reading these issues in a single sitting. This is an understated story, both in narrative and artwork, that evokes the isolating chill both of the bleak north and of secrets left unspoken, and fans of confident, stylised Noir should find plenty to enjoy here.

    This series went from cute to intriguing to awesome to satisfying. All four issues offered something for us readers. This issue quickly and seamlessly tied all loose ends, finishing off what was an incredibly entertaining series. If you missed it, I recommend reading this series for anyone into the crime/mystery/vigilante genres of books. The creative team did a wonderful job with this series… Enjoy! Read Full Review

    There's an air of inevitability to Snow Blind's final chapter. While its ending effectively capitalizes on the terse world quickly created by Ollie Masters and Tyler Jenkins, the book's miniseries nature ultimately stunts the intended impact of the finale's events. Read Full Review

    This book has absolutely gorgeous artwork- it reminds me so much of a lot of the Jeff Lemire watercolor painted artwork that I enjoy so much- speaking of Lemire’s work, I picked up 3 Story, a hardcover OGN of his from the library this week, and I am excited to read that as well. But enough about things that aren’t this- Snow Blind is a really solid miniseries, that took a lot of twists and turns, but that really ended on a note that was less than stellar for me. Maybe it was just not “FINAL” enough to suit me, but it just felt off, maybe it was also a problem that I had with the pacing, because I had a problem with the pacing. Though, looking back on the issue now, I think it was effective enough, with plenty of action, violence and suspense to go ‘round. I just would have liked a more “explanation heavy” ending, since this is a story that doesn’t really go around answering all the reader’s questions as we go. Beyond that it was a really good story, and I am imagining that it will read much better in trade- because it will sweep the pacing problems under the rug when it’s something that you can enjoy in just one sitting. These creators have made a really compelling story, and I would really like to see them working on more new stuff, sooner rather than later.
