    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 28, 2016

    Snotgirl gets perfect marks from me because it doesn't feel like it's being written for the trade or the story arc. It feels like the first honest to god ongoing story that I've read since the 90s. It feels like the comics so many of us grew up reading, before the TV formula and the books sales dictated how a comic was created. Back when you had to guess when a story would end rather than look at the issue number. And yet, it feels like one of the most modern comics to happen to the industry in years. I went from reading a lot of Image titles to pretty much just this, and I'm so grateful for this. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Mark Allen Oct 5, 2016

    It's not all melodrama and panic-stricken heroines, however; there's a hilarious sequence involving Lottie getting hit on at the snack table by a cute but shiver-inducingly creepy guy. Though she's left speechless by his strange and aggressive come-ons, she gets the last laugh in a page that is some of Hung's most entertaining (and possibly most NSFW) work on the series so far. The subplot is not only a delight, but a subtle reminder thatSnotgirlis about sexual politics and gender roles just as much as the hysterical antics and farcical thriller elements, retaining its claim as one of the boldest, funniest, and smartest books being published right now.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Neutral Grey Sep 28, 2016

    If you can stomach youth slang and initialisms then I think you should pick this comic up. I know Snotgirl sounds unusual but I'd recommend it to any comic fan, especially ones looking to break out of the superhero or secret organization boxes. With the series only three issues in, it's a perfect time to try it and see if it's for you. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Scott Macdonald Oct 3, 2016

    This book is an interesting read that puts together a story with a number of interesting layers that makes it difficult to characterize. It is not a romantic comedy, though those elements are there. It's not a mystery but again those elements are there too. Maybe that too is a statement about the generation this book represents. This comic book will not be classified or put in a box. It will dare you totry to, as soon as you do, it will defy your expectations. Read Full Review
