    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Mar 6, 2013

    After such a frenetic pace is set from page one it's nice to see Jake with a moment to contemplate his situation. And right before Jake is ready to walk away there's one more twist: detectives are now investigating the crimes… and Jake is no longer just a victim but a suspect! In short Snapshot #2is simply a great read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Mar 6, 2013

    After a relatively slow start in the first issue, Diggle makes sure the plot thickens in the second, as Jake teams up with Callie Twain, whose father met his untimely denis in the previous issue. Callie brings with her some answers but those, of course, lead to only more questions. Is it April yet? Because Jake and I need answers. Read Full Review

    High-octane from the start and unrelenting emotional stakes makes Snapshot #2 a must. Read Full Review

    "Snapshot" #2 was more conventional than the first issue, but I was never bored. This is definitely another Image mini series still worth reading. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Mar 12, 2013

    Lest we forget, this is the same Andy Diggle who's gonna be taking over Action Comics once Grant Morrison leaves next month. If he can handle the kind of heavy sci-fi stories that the Superman books seem to favor these days as deftly as he's handling the noir-ish paranoia of Snapshot, then we're in for a treat. Jock's pen-and-ink minimalism allows you to really get a sense of each character. You can almost feel the bottom drop out from under you when Jake realizes that, once again, things aren't what they seem. Backgrounds appear and disappear as necessary to highlight whatever it is that he wants you to see, and the page layouts are imaginative, sometimes bleeding all the way to the edge of the page, while other times using the lack of background as the borders themselves. Fantastic stuff! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 6, 2013

    I have to admit that this book does dip into clich at times, not only in the stereotypically, and oddly-placed "nerdy" characterization of Jake, but also in the openly foolish decisions made by the two leads. But this feels more like setup of form rather than laziness. It also ends very strangely, without any discernible punch, at least not like the last issue had. Yes, there's an element of danger, but its threat is greatly reduced when compared to the end of part one. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Mar 6, 2013

    SNAPSHOT is the sort of comic you owe it to yourself to check out. We need and deserve variety in our comic. It's especially great when creators like Andy Diggle and Jock show us they can be versatile with the types of comics they produce. Too often readers get comfortable reading the same types of comics so hopefully people will be willing to check out this series rather than let it slip by. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Mar 9, 2013

    While this will undoubtedly make a ripper of a "thriller movie" when it is presented in a complete trade format, these single issues were made for the kinds of cliffhangers that Diggle excels at. As we impatiently wait for the continuation of this tight saga, we can thank heavens that this month has proven to be a golden age for creator-owned content. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Mar 8, 2013

    The chemistry between the art and the writing is rock-solid, unbelievable plot devices or not, and overall, this is a fun and entertaining comic, if not exactly a realistic one. Things continue pretty much in the same vein as the first issue, so if that was your cup of tea, you'll like this one, too. But the sped-up pace and slight logical disconnect between the sequential events of this issue will prove a deal-breaker for some. Read Full Review
