Don’t ask 😂

Ok where do I start, an interesting introduction to a “superhero “.
Lottie is a fashion blogger with horrendous allergies, and in this episode meets up with coolgirl Caroline after being stood up by her blogger friends.
Great drawing and colour, a sort of interesting story, and I worry I could be hooked 🤣

After the brilliant Scott Pilgrim series and the hugely enjoyable Seconds, Bryan Lee O’Malley’s earned a lot of trust from me. So when I heard his next project was Snotgirl, about a fashion blogger with allergies, I was excited because I thought O’Malley would take this seemingly uninteresting concept and spin gold out of it – and unfortunately he hasn’t. Snotgirl is the first O’Malley comic that was both very boring and unexpectedly quite annoying to read.

There’s not really a lot to say about
I'm really hoping there's more to this series than just "vapid girl has allergies."

The only aspect of this comic that I enjoyed was the artwork. The first issue is always the set up for the story line and introduction into the characters, which is sometimes difficult to pace everything out properly, but it just felt all over the place and just a big mash-up. The ending came out of nowhere, and wasn't what I expected, but the only aspect of this issue that would ever-so-slightly spark my interest in knowing what happens next. Although, at the same time, I don't care to pick up ...more

This was... different. Lottie seems like a really complex character. There were moments where I disliked her, but then moments where I really connected to her. It's cool having a MC the same age as me too. The story seems really unique and the art and colours are absolutely stunning. I'm definitely excited to keep reading this!!

Totally weird and about everything I hate (fashion, unnecessary drama, allergies?) but for some reason I can't look away and I need more! The same pop culture, lighthearted yet serious feel that O'Malley brought to Scott Pilgrim, but this time our protagonist is a selfish (but endearingly so?) fashion blogger surrounded by all kinds of other caricature type friends that we all know. Her ex is dating one of her former interns, which is unacceptable, but Lottie is trying to focus on the positive w ...more

You will not be able to explain why you love this comic but you will. Badass ending, they don't catch you like that anymore. Give this a chance, one issue and you'll be intrigued in the weirdest way.

Really wasn't loving this book, I'm not the Fashion Blogger type, but that ending will have me coming back for issue 2.

As gross as the title sounds, Snotgirl is absolutely the best first issue I read from this year's Image comics Humble Bundle.

For starters, the art is gorgeous! Even when it's kind of disgusting, it's also drawn with style.

I had theories about the plot, but I didn't manage to crack what's actually going on with Snotgirl, but it a completely positive way, because I'm now very excited to continue reading on.

And also, happy to say that Brian Lee O'Malley

I decided that in 2018 I'm gonna start reading the first issue of a comic online before I dive in and buy a volume...

I wasn't gonna read Snotgirl when I saw it in a bookshop but after reading the first issue it's really different than I expected!! That ending though!! I'll probably be carrying on with this one!

Ummmm what?? That ending???

Okay so I wasn't liking this at all. I felt kinda grossed out and didn't like the main character's personality at all. I know we were seeing how many insecurities she had which was supposed to make her more relatable I guess, but she is truly ugly on the inside and I just can't commit to reading a series based on that.

But that damn cliff hanger!!! Unffff I wanna know what happens!! 😫

I was expecting to be a little jolted by the fact that we're getting a Bryan Lee O'Malley story but for the first time, not Bryan Lee O'Malley's art work to go along with it. And I have to say, Bryan Lee O'Malley and Leslie Hung are a dream team.

I liked this. It has an unnatural quality of sharing characters who resemble people I know in my life. There is a believable selfishness that exists in our protagonist, that exists while also driving me to be fond of the character, too. I say this because these themes aren't common nor easy to produce in a project. There was some confusion at the end (and a twist, DID NOT SEE IT COMING) about what happened. I had to reread the last few pages because passive reading left me unprepared for the con ...more

What a convoluted and nonsensical plot. It doesn't seem to be setting up for anything monumental. Instead I get the feeling that it's wondering aimlessly until it can find a plot. I still have no idea why she's called snot girl. Who are these extra characters? What is even happening? What is real. The art is the only thing keeping me hooked. Otherwise I don't have a reason to continue other than to look at the pretty outfits and character designs. So far, I'm going to see where the story tak

I had heard so many good things about this comic, and after quickly glancing through it in the store and falling in love with the art of it, I knew I had to buy myself a copy to see if it was worth the hype. Personally, I enjoyed it a whole lot. Lottie seems like an interesting character. It's only the first issue so we still don't really know too much about her besides her age, the fact she's a fashion blogger, and that she has allergies (also, why is this important for us to know? hmmm.)

Holy WOW does this feel out of touch. It's super "ikr idek omg lolololllollol", plus the main character is a "fashion blogger" without ever acknowledging that that's...not really a thing anymore. Of course there are people still living the entirety of their unrealistically perfect lives online, but "fashion bloggers" had their heyday in about 2009. This reads like a story written by guy who read a bunch of teen manga from the mid 2000s and decided to write what he thought would be a hard hitting ...more

I love Bryan Lee O'Malley's work on Scott Pilgrim and Seconds, but this was wild. Only the first copy and I'm in love with the art, I'm dying for more backstory, I'm really interested in the characters, and I need the next issue right now! (Why does it not come out until late August...)

Would recommend to anyone who likes comics, quick reads, and lighthearted-while-also-lowkey-serious reads.

I came here for Bryan but Leslie also killed it. (Pun intended.) While I'm not particularly interested in fashion (don't understand it) or allergies (just CAN'T stand it) I did, somehow, enjoy this issue. The dialogue, whilst being a little smug, was still fun and had a clueless feel to it but the ending flipped me over and spun me sideways in a jolt of shock horror surprise. What on Earth just occured?! Excited to see where this one goes with #2..

Jeez, I love Bryan Lee's comics, his drawing, his stories...

Snotgirl is as funny as Scott Pilgrim (which I have to finish the series asap), so if you have read SP and enjoyed, you should give Snotgirl a chance :)

It's just the first issue so this review won't hold much weight. I enjoyed the premise, a shallow LA- based fashion blogger with allergies and the usual fake friends and boyfriend drama. There are moments where you see a bit of depth and reality sneaking out from the hilariously shallow exterior that some bloggers actually do project. The themes of mystery, murder and stalking lend it an exciting undertone and makes you wonder what is actually happening. All in all, it was an aesthetic and inter ...more

I really wanted to like this because I have liked EVERYTHING else by O'Malley. Scott Pilgrim, Seconds, and Lost at Sea. But in Snotgirl, I found the main character annoying and just had no interest in fashion or appearances or anything that this comic focused on. I was hoping O'Malley would spin this, like Scott Pilgrim (because a book about relationship exs is not a topic I'd normally go to for reading), but it was just exactly what it said it was. Fashion blogger with allergies. I guess if tha ...more

#Relateable young adults finding themselves in life and the drama and social anxiety that comes with it. A lovely read that is in between reading a magazine, online blog, and graphic novel. I have really been enjoying the series and the fashion porn/art style.

Definitely am hooked and I binged the entire series up to the latest issue. I can't wait for each upcoming issue and highly recommend it!
