Colder_1
Writer: Paul Tobin
Artist: Juan Ferreyra
Cover Artist: Juan Ferreyra

Size: 32 pages
Price: 3.99

I was about six comics into my stack this week and was depressed to find every comic fitting comfortably into mediocrity. Nothing awful, but nothing exciting, either.

Colder isn’t a life changingly different comic. I’m not having the main character tattooed on my bonch, but it’s a (pun redacted) interesting premise that I think and hope the writer an artist can sustain for the five issue run.

You don’t need to know the premise to enjoy this. You probably don’t know the writer (Paul Tobin), and Paul Ferreyra. I did some research, and I’m glad I did it after reading the comic because Tobin has a book on his resume that may have swayed me to not bother with this. That would have been my loss.

This is a fun (pun redacted) thriller that showcases Tobin’s tight grasp on characters. Ferreyra’s art nearly jumps off the page. I don’t mean it’s almost good. I mean there were times I thought the characters might actually extend beyond the page and into my personal space. There are some really (pun redacted) unusual perspectives and choreography that I’m not sure most artists could pull off.

If you’re looking for something unusual to break up the monotony of Bendis Avengers and the increasingly appropriately subtitled Rot comics, I highly recommend this.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent

    I’m getting tired of paying more for less. This was a $4.00 comic, and for the money, I think Tobin should have given us a little more background on the characters so we know what is going on, why things happen the way they do, and allow the readers to speculate on the direction of the story.

    It will be up to the individual reader to decide whether this first issue is intrigueing, confusing, or ridiculous. If Tobin doesn’t resolve this dilemma, if he thinks he can string his audience along for 5 issue before explaining Declan and Nimble Jack to us, it’s a mistake.

    If some of my confusion isn’t cleared away in issue #2, I won’t spend my time or money on 3, 4, or 5.

    Many comics are $3.99, and have been for a few years. This isn’t a ridiculously expensive comic. As for what Tobin SHOULD give us? That’s a really entitled and weird sentiment.

    Thanks, I guess, for leaving your review in the comments of my review, without acknowledging the review, You should really leave your own review. I don’t mean that as an insult or to tell you what you SHOULD do. I just think if you feel so strongly about the book you would want to write a review yourself. Then again, I just checked your profile, and you seem to be all about leaving angry comments about what comments you don’t like.

    If you’re ever in Boston, you should stop at the store I work at. I’ll buy you an ice cream and we can try and figure out why you’re so angry about comics,

  3. Thanks for the Review and the good adjectives towards us Akamuu! :)

    And to make things even more Clear, issue #1 had 24 pages instead of the regular 22, and issue#2 will have 26 pages!!I get paid for 22 pages, I do more pages just to make the comic better and because I love drawing this comic!

    I hope you guys can appreciate the effort we put into this and we’re thankful to everyone who reads it!
