Snow Blind Comic Book Review

What happens when you discover your parents aren’t the people you thought they were?

For high school student Teddy, life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska turns upside down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad online, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. A man seeking revenge invades their town, followed soon after by pursuing FBI agents . . . but what if his dad's reasons for going into the program aren't as innocent as he says?

Snow Blind is very similar to Dept. H, the last graphic novel that I read, in the sense that the story is told as an internal monologue and the art style is rough sketches combined with watercolour. While the story is much stronger (and the art a lot better), I still didn't think that this would be a particularly memorable read.

The story is simple enough, and is told in 4 issues: Teddy post a photo online of his dad and discovers that his family is in Witness protection for something that happened years ago. Naturally he does the most sensible thing and asks his dad about it goes private detective, putting someone in hospital in the process.

The story wrapped up well but it was predictable and unoriginal, unfortunately. Thankfully it's a very quick read with a couple of action scenes to help it along. I'd be interested to see what the author/illustrator does next.
