Janelle Seigel at Newsarama: Holy crap, I want to marry Jamie McKelvie. Well, truthfully, I want to marry his comic, but… whatever. I think it would be safe to say that Suburban Glamour blew me away. I had seen it initially in Previews and had been intrigued, but nothing could have prepared me for just how good of a comic this really is.

James Hunt at Noise To Signal: As his debut “solo” effort, it shows that he’s as excellent a writer as he is an illustrator – McKelvie brings to his dialogue the same kind of fashionable, personality-filled sensibility that his pencilling is famed for. The kids look like kids (excessively trendy, beautiful kids, but kids nonetheless) and the adults look like adults, without looking cliche. McKelvie’s character artistry is undoubtedly some of the best in comics, and that stands whether you’re talking about his trademark Hot Punk Girls, or an imaginary…pokemon…thing.

Paul O’Brien at X-Axis: Granted, the story is fairly familiar, as are most of the elements of teenage life. But it’s very well done, and if the story hasn’t quite hooked me with the plot mechanics, it’s made me care about Astrid enough to see where this is going.
