Colder (Vol #1) Comic Book Review
Sheer. Freaking. Genius. Great art? Check. Great storyline? Check. Not drawn out over 20 thousand volumes? Check! I was expecting this to be mediocre, or okay at best but I was really surprised to find how much I loved reading this book. The story is simple enough, a man in a lunatic asylum is visited by Nimble Jack, an entity that tells him, "Hello Declan. You're going to grow colder." And Declan does. Over the course of the next few decades his temperature slowly drops - and if it hits zero it's all over.
It's not realistic by any means (come on, the main character is literally blue from cold) but I really don't care for realism when I can have humongous dogs that are half giant hands instead. I love creepy, cringy, push your hands through your mouth into your eyes horror and this had everything. Plus Declan was pretty damn fine...
The entire story of Nimble Jack searching for his next meal (in the form of Declan's girlfriend) is wrapped up in 5 issues/1 volume however I know there are future volumes, so I'll be picking these up too to see where they take us. Hopefully somewhere horrific.
