Lottie lays low after last month's alarming events, but she still has to deal with her stalker! "Sounds gross! Can you change the title?" say our moms. The hottest new series of 2016 is SNOTGIRL from BRYAN LEE O'MALLEY (Scott Pilgrim) and LESLIE HUNG!

    Flickering Myth - Mark Allen Aug 30, 2016

    Every single element in Snotgirl is used in concert to make for a breezy, laugh-a-panel reading experience that still manages to feel substantial despite its superlative silliness. And that's why, if you aren't already reading this comic, you need to catch up. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Aug 25, 2016

    So yeah, despite not really liking any of the characters, I'm really enjoying my time withSnotgirl. The character study and social commentary elements are what defines the book, but it's whimsical nature is what keeps me interested. I'm really looking forward to more of this book, even more so than I was at the end of the first issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 25, 2016

    After a stellar debut issue, Snotgirl doesn't quite keep the mucous flowing in its second chapter. This issue feels a bit more disjointed, mainly because of the abrupt introduction of a new police detective character. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 24, 2016

    Snotgirl isn't likely to win over superhero readers the way Scott Pilgrim once did, but for those of us reading it, it is a unique comic experience. Never before have I read a comic about fashion, blogging, with a mix of murder and sordid love affair. If you read comics because of stories and for stories that you'd never see anywhere else, then Snotgirl is absolutely a comic book you should check out. It could surprise you; it could also hurt your eyes with just how damn good it looks. Read Full Review

    For me, Snotgirl is just like that annoying Facebook friend who you find yourself complaining about but just can't bring yourself to unfriend. FML. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton Aug 24, 2016

    Snotgirl #2 is an ode to the fleeting nature of fame in the context of the Instagram age and even if most of the issue is Bryan Lee O'Malley, Leslie Hung, and the pastel happy colorist Mickey Quinn driving Lottie's paranoid feelings home, it's a stylish read with a wry sense of humor and the beginnings of an interesting mystery plot.

    Comics: The Gathering - Aaron Reese Aug 27, 2016

    This isn’t a comic book that can continue forever. The events set in motion at the end of issue #1 almost guarantee it will end. That’s a good thing. I can’t imaging following around Lottie and her “haters” for year, but a brief series should continue to be enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brad Sun Aug 29, 2016

    What does work without question is the stunning visual design by Leslie Hung, Mickey Quinn, and Mar Odomo. Their stylish and complex layouts continue to be a series highlight, combining text and image in unique and captivating ways. O'Malley's humor and wit are also on point as we begin to grasp the depths of Lottie's scatterbrained neuroses. Ultimately, Snotgirl #2's charm and ambition outshine the series' uneven start.

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Aug 24, 2016

    New promise comes through the introduction of a new character, Detective John Cho (no relation), who has an interesting, creative backstory that does for the comic what should have been done with Lottie. We could have easily seen Cho for what he seemed in his fancy suit and fawning women, but we quickly shook that off and were given more. That has to be coming in the future for Lottie " it has to be coming in the future for this comic " and hope it begins soon for Snotgirl to begin inching towards its potential. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Peter Ngaou Aug 25, 2016

    Snotgirl #2 commits one of the worst crimes in storytelling. It's boring. It's too soon to say whether or not O'Malley and Hung have plans for a story that reveals compelling commentary and depth, but I can't imagine what else would be in store. It may be best to wait for the trade paperback of Snotgirl than to read issue by issue if this is what it has in store. Read Full Review
