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.
