“I had two Books of the Week and they were both written by young authors with big futures ahead of them. Suburban Glamour #2 dazzled me as much, if not more so, than the first issue of the mini. SG is an Image Book written and drawn by Jaime McKelvie. McKelvie was the artist on the Phonogram mini for Image and a few other things. I believe that this is his first published comic writing work. I am impressed. McKelvie has managed to create real and relatable characters with a skill level and elegance that you’d expect to see in the work of a grizzled veteran writer. The reader can’t help but care about them.” Comics This Week podcast gives it joint Pick Of The Week with Northlanders.

Comics Daily: “Anyone complaining that the first issue was too slow should be satisfied by this one, which throws some serious twists at the reader. If the first issue was all about establishing the characters, this issue is all about setting up the plot. Just when I thought I had Suburban Glamour figured out (and I consider myself a fairly jaded and sceptical audience) it turns out I didn’t guess the half of it. McKelvie has proven himself as an artist over and over, and now he’s proving he can spin a decent yarn as well. Like a proverbial Icarus, he’s flying daringly close to greats like Whedon and Gaiman, but so far the wings haven’t come off yet. Roll on Issue #3.”
