Reviews Ice Cream Man, Vol. 2

  • Sam Quixote
    Vultures feast on corporate executives’ innards, knife-wielding psychos in bird masks torture random strangers, a cowboy battles a demon, paramedics get high and drive around ignoring injured peeps, a clown commits suicide, and everything’s on fire - it’s the 2018 state of mind Ice Cream Man is back with a second volume: Strange Neapolitan! Annnnnd the series is still just ok. Like most anthologies, the quality varies. The opening story of ...

    HOLY SHIT! Talk about a upgrade. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed some of volume 1 of Ice Cream Man but some of the stories didn't do much for me. This one? Goddamn, every story hit me hard. So what is Ice Cream Man? It's basically a bunch of stories broken up, and sometimes slightly connecting, but all centered around this evil entity known as Ice Cream Man. He's always in the background, or the main threat in each story. In this title we ha...

    As good as the first, maybe even better!So far the Ice cream man has done a nice job of keeping a creepy pace. Its still an anthology and you dont even really need to read the first to know whats going on. Multiple lives, real imaginary friends and creepy clowns are just a few things we take on this round. The art continues to amaze and daze. Really, my only complaint is that we havnt found out a little more about the Ice creams origins or what t...

    This volume felt like a step up in story quality from the first volume. It's very well done. This Ice Cream Twilight zone is starting to get interesting. The fifth issue (first in this volume) was meh, but the rest was pretty good.
  • Susan
    While Volume 1 was clever, edgy and creepy this one just didn't do it for me. The stories were not very interesting and the ridiculous plot holes and overly convenient rescues were annoying. There's also a lot of animal death for no reason other than to be awful which I realize is one of the aims of this comic but it felt gratuitous and pointless. I give it two stars for the art and colouring but the stories get little love from me.

    I thought the first volume of Ice Cream Man was great, but Strange Neapolitan blew me away. I was absolutely struck by the creativity, art style, and underlying horror. This volume features four separate issues, but the main issue called Strange Neapolitan is a masterpiece. I don't believe there is any dialogue, but there may be in the strawberry panel. The comic is split into three sections like a classic Neapolitan ice cream: strawberry, vanill...
  • Norman
    This volume feels a little more grounded than the first volume - like there’s some underlying story brewing. Of course, that isn’t to say it’s not a whacky presentation. Still short stories, vignettes about people becoming something they might otherwise not be - or maybe they’ve always been that way - and this Ice Cream Man guy is the “devil” apparently? Or does he represent the inner darkness within us all? I read all these issues mu...
  • Simon
    Although I still feel like this is a pretty effective horror series, this volume definitely leans pretty heavy on the art, which keeps knocking it out of the park. The plot, though, starts to introduce serialized elements and mythology, which isn't going all that smoothly as that part of the book feels both too sparse (a page or two per issue) and way too rushed at the same time (the confrontation in issue 7 and the "twist" in issue 8 feel like p...
  • Drucilla
    There are a couple of standout stories here, but because all of the stories (both in this volume and the previous one) take place in the same town, it's probably best to read them back to back. It's just cool to actually recognize the cameos and connections.
