    I picked up the second issue yesterday at the comic store. It keeps getting better. I do have a couple of issues with character designs of a couple of the characters looking too much like Phonogram characters but that's minor.

    I posted a review of the first issue over on my blog. I like the second one even more. I don't want to give away too much though. :)

    Who else is reading this and what do you think?

    It's fun - but not as much as Phonogram. Not yet, anyway. Certainly keen to read it all.

    I actually like it a bit better than Phonogram so far. All in all, the characters are a bit nicer. Not that that is a determiner of "good" in a story to me, I just care about the characters a bit more.

    If you liked the cover designs, they're available as prints.

    Go here and buy them before Jamie is forced to start eating his pencils in order to survive.

    No #2 in mine yet either, irritatingly.

    Convinced a friend to try the first issue when it came out. Halfway through, she turned to me, pulled a disgusted face and said "this is the most emo comic ever".



    She was incredibly angry when the second issue didn't arrive on time :)

    its only emo in the new mtv version of the word. like when that douche calls the kids "fucking emos". uh, emo isnt a noun and i hate people using it like that. i also hate when bands are called emo that are actually just poppunk. emo: orchid, heroin, swing kids. poppunk: MCR, fall out boy, saves the day. sorry. had to rant a little. (not saying whether the bands are good or not, just the mis-labeling based on haircuts.)

    I believe you'll find that's the worst kind of emo for something to be ;)
    Also, as with most genres, it's a fairly loose term, so people can use it in different ways without necessarily being wrong (and technically, it is a noun).

    Anyway, this is veering unpleasantly off topic. Back to the comic - it seemed fun, and the artwork was, of course, fantastic. Hopefully the shop'll have issue two in next week so's I can find out where things are going!

    hahah, that is by far the worst kind. i dont want to just bicker back and forth, but emo is EMOtional hardcore. so its a noun in regards to music, and people can be emo, but they cant be AN emo. sorry to be nitpicky(and i'm not trying to be condescending) ,but as a hardcore kid, i have had to hear the mainstream explanation of emo for too long now. i will now get back on subject: how great does jamie's art look in full color through the whole book? he's pretty rad.

    Ah, I'd like to pick it up! I'm making my way through Phonogram for the first time, and quite enjoying the experience :D
  5.  (194.13)
    phonogram is amazing- its on my short list of comics to write about for the project i'm currently working on. its totally a record/scene nerd comic-the themes apply to almost any diy scene. i love it!
  6.  (194.14)
    It's been a fun read with a nice little twist in issue #2.
  7.  (194.15)
    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    I enjoyed reading the first issue, great characters, excellent dialouge, I just felt that not much actually happened. The second issue is in my pull box so I aint read it yet.

    Personally, I'm enjoying the hell out of Suburban Glamour. Just a pity it's only four issues, I had assumed it was six.

    McKelvie is on a winning streak: beautiful "ligne-claire" art (look it up), cool story. HAS WIN.

    Not as interesting as Phonogram for me yet, but mostly because Phonogram took everything I thought/experienced during the 90's and made a comic out of it. Still, I like where McKelvie's going.

    I'm definitely enjoying this more then Phonogram. Not that it wasn't fantastic, I just think Glamour is much more accessible. And the last line of issue 1 was brilliant. The "big reveal" in 2 was okay, I may not be 100% down with the story, but the storytelling is amazing.

    I picked up the first issue, and even though at first some things weren't my keep of tea (I hate trend shopping) and other things were (weird ass "SO REAL!" dreams) I did like the characters and the end of the issue.
    I will pick up a trade, since I'm slowly but surely making my way over to trades for all my comic needs.
