    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Feb 21, 2021

    'Snow Angels' #1 is a compelling first issue from Jeff Lemire who sets this story in motion with a shocking cliffhanger and really is a showcase of Jock's greatness as an artist. When you have two titans of the industry on top of their game, 'Snow Angels' is a must-buy.  Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 16, 2021

    Snow Angels #1 is an intriguing debut. We both do and don't know a lot about this world. We're presented the “rules” of it all but teased there's so much more. Then, you get to the end and get a feeling the series is going in a whole other direction. With this creative team, it's not surprising the debut is so good. It's a mystery that sucks you in to its wintery nightmare. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Feb 16, 2021

    On a couple of pages there is blood and the way the red is so prominent reminds me the way Frank Miller would use red to stand out in his Sin City books. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Feb 23, 2021

    While the plot doesnt instantly strike me as unique, the ending of Snow Angels #1 brings plenty of promise. The art perfectly reflects the cruel, icy wasteland. This first issue is a good start, and Im excited to see where this series takes us. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Vishal Gullapalli Feb 16, 2021

    Snow Angels feels soulless, like even the creators aren't really interested in the world they've created. The artifice is palpable throughout the issue, and the last page's reveal was the least surprising way to close the issue imaginable. I expected far better from both creators, but unfortunately Snow Angels doesn't feel like it has any inspiration behind it. It's a dull, frustrating beginning that I can only hope is not indicative of the rest of the series, but I don't have high expectations. Read Full Review
