Ice Cream Man Vol. 1: Rainbow Sprinkles Reviews
The best thing I’ve read all year. A sharp, funny, surreal, surprising nightmare. Like Grant Morrison meets Hitchcock. The Ice Cream Man is this bizarre trickster demi-god going around screwing with the mind space of a small unaware town. And beautifully illustrated. I’ll leave it that.
I had all the intention to love this, as I loved the cover, the synopsis and the general idea... but this was a mess... and didn't quite feel the horror or that the stories were that original.
That was actually totally scary. It pulls out and shows the darkest parts of the characters.
I can’t wait to read more, and to figure out WHAT THE FRICK FRAK IS GOING ON.
Plus, who on earth is the man in Black?
3.5; a pleasingly offbeat, promising debut volume that gets a lot of mileage out of its enigmatic titular character, whose actions vary from mischievousness to pure malevolence, while the ending hints at the introduction of a larger mythology that is quite intriguing.
this kind of horror is both surreal and also kind of my jam. It's like, a twisted Ice Cream Man-version of It.
This is an anthology series where each issue is a self-contained story with different characters. What pulls them together as a collection is that they all feature the Ice Cream Man. While one of the stories was decidedly horror as a whole I'd rather call them weird tales. The first was the best of the four contained here. After that, they decreased in interest for me and I found the entire gimmick got old fast. I'll say that each story does have a bit of a thrill to make it a decent enough way ...more
This was crazy weird. On one hand it feels like a modern day Tales from the Crypt despite not entirely being a horror series. This volume was only 4 issues but there is the mysterious character of the Ice Cream Man himself. What is he? I want to read more and get some answers. Who was the man at the very end??
Now I want some ice cream...
This comic was so freaking strange!!! I really enjoyed it though. The artwork was interesting and the stories...they were crazy. If you haven’t read this definitely give it a chance. I’ll be posting my full review here once it goes live on my blog.
