That is a completely different story with this week’s releases because there were so many new ones like a brand new Iron Maiden comic, a Hellboy one off, a brand new Batman comic, and today’s Comic Book Of The Week in Antarctic Press’s Horror Comics #1. It was definitely a hard week to choose just one title for today, but the comic which combines one of my favorite genres in it’s title. The comic was written by Bradley Golden (Exciting Comics) and illustrated by Andrey Lunatik which was built off of Timmy Lala’s Ice Scream to which they built on Kickstarter. In the comic, Thomas Wright is a beloved figure in Miami community because he puts smiles on the faces of children and adults with the power of Ice Cream. The only thing that these unsuspecting people do not know is that Thomas has a little bit of a dark side, but don’t they wonder how he gets his ice cream to taste better than the competitions? Check out the comic where ever comic books are sold in your area, but also visit Antarctic Press.

MAR191460As far as the story is concerned, I liked what they did because they set up what direction they were going to go to, but they ended it just at the right time. They ended it at a point where you are super excited for what is going to come next because they gave you the pop in the first issue. The artwork is not exactly my favorite aspect of the comic, but I do not hate it. I actually think that it fits the subject matter and the mood of the comic if that makes any sense. I do have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the comic because I was wondering how different was this comic book going to be compared to Image’s Ice Cream Man and Antarctic Press did not disappoint. They made it so that the Ice Cream Man is the main character and not the Cryptkeeper type character that Image’s was. So, I think it’s safe to say that I am definitely going to be looking forward to issue number two because horror is my life and my passion. So, do yourselves a favor and check it out for sure and while you are at it, check out my grades below:
