    With only two issues left to go in this series, do yourself a favor and pick it up. Just be emotionally ready for it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Apr 7, 2018

    This book is so good. If you are not reading you need to and then tell 5 people you know to read it. I bring it up in conversation all the time. I start with, "Do you remember Snagglepuss?" It always works. Listen, there are only two more to go. Don't be the person who picks this up after it wins a ton of awards. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 5, 2018

    As Mark Russell's reinvention of classic gay-coded Hanna-Barbera character Snagglepuss enters its second half with Snagglepuss Chronicles #4, this is a series with a lot on its mind as it takes on some of the ugliest moments in Twentieth Century history. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Judah Churchill Apr 10, 2018

    This book is not for the faint of heart, its depiction of an escalated hate crime being committed by the people in charge of protecting us might be a little triggering for some. But other than a Marilyn Monroe that looks more like Bette Midler I dont have anything bad to say, I hope DC keeps putting out stories like this. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Apr 4, 2018

    Russell's writing of Snagglepuss is as engaging as ever and there are some clever moments here; his characterization of the antagonist, however, remains resolutely two-dimensional. Even the revelation near the end of the issue can't quite rescue her. Nevertheless, with witty, charming dialogue and excellent art, this remains one of the more interesting " and entertaining " Hanna-Barbera books. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Apr 4, 2018

    The pacing picks up and we get some poignant moments that make the issue worth reading. Unfortunately, the back-up strip doesn't gel with the rest of the issue, and the cartoon-style art feels out of place at times. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Apr 4, 2018

    Doing a fairly good job of mixing humans and talking animals in an artistic realism perspective, I can't fault Mike Feehan and Sean Parsons for their work. It's quite interesting seeing their adaptations of the cartoon animals into these new forms, and I'd appreciate seeing more of the interactions in this world -- if it wasn't for the fact that this world, as developed by writer Mark Russell, is populated either with gays or gay-bashers, with nothing visible in the way of moderation. It's a dichotomy of ideals I could live without. Fortunately, this is a comic book, so I can do just that. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Apr 4, 2018

    Discussion of game theory and how that paradigm shifts alters individual world views is fascinating and a worthwhile reminder of what this series is capable of. Yet the interest in drawing parallels between bunkers, bombs, and homophobia ultimately loses out to hate speech and tired tropes. Read Full Review

    The pace of this issue was good, something that's been uneventful in the past. The writing is strong and the art compelling. The excellence of both is reflected in my readily setting aside the fundamental question of whether the nature of these Hanna Barbera animal characters actually justfy using them to tell such a depressing story.
