    I will definitely follow this title throughout April though, and I strongly encourage you do the same. It is a solid piece of work with no real time or financial hardship requiring to be dedicated to it beyond the next two weeks. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Apr 8, 2014

    So far Shotgun Wedding has been one of the best mini's that I've read in a long time showing that shorter limited series can be much better than the ambitious ones that the big two produce. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I like action based stories in my comics. It's part of the reason I enjoyed what 12 Gauge Comics was doing with their all action titles so Shotgun Wedding is a welcomed surprised; especially being that it's from Top Cow's Minotaur Press imprint. At this point if you missed out on the series you have some catching up to do, but I would say that it's worth the time, effort and money to invest. Sure you may want to wait until next week to snatch up all four issues or give yourself a heads start and build that excitement some. Either way, check this series out if you love pure action stories playing out on your comic pages. Read Full Review

    Shotgun Wedding #1 featured a fun premise, but it didn't do enough to distance itself from similar stories like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Luckily, issue #2 makes some strides. The romantic history between secret agents Mike and Chloe is fleshed out, allowing both to feel more like characters and less like cardboard cutouts Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Apr 8, 2014

    There are a few other small shreds of what pretends to be a plot, but the comic as a whole totally fails to grab any attention, build any semblance of a coherent story, or create any sort of enduring character personalities. Seriously, this was kind of embarrassing to read. In fact, the only real hook that tempts the reader to buy #2 was the cover for the issue, which shows a creepy scientist guy and a hot chick in an unzipped catsuit. Those are some very resourceful marketing techniques, my fine monochromatic friends! But not good enough to trick me into thinking this was a good issue of an in-any-way-readable title.

    Usually I see certain keywords in a title and I will dismiss the book without ever giving it a chance to be great. Certain keywords include the words Love, Funny and Wedding. However, you can't not see this without picking it up and reading. I have to say, if you are as big a fan of espionage as I am...then this series is right up your alley. Love, betrayal, murder, spy stuff......a wedding? I am without a doubt hooked by this story and will continue to keep buying issues.
