Little girl controls ice ghosts because horror. Them ghosts is up to no good because durrr. Her deadbeat dad suddenly cares about her despite having never seen her before because plot. Somewhere in that mess is a “story” that’ll make you wish you were an ice ghost so you wouldn’t feel boredom on this scale!

Is Cold Spots yet another pile of complete and utter shit from a man who seems determined to have his own sub-genre of staggeringly terrible horror comics, Cullen “How Do I Keep Getting Paid

I wanted a creepy little ghost story just before Christmas and this hit the spot! (Groannn...)

The plot's a little... I don't want to say 'thin' but I can't think of a better word, but it's extremely atmospheric. I'm looking forward to Cullen and co. delving deeper into this story in the future.

P.S. - each issue of this book comes with a link to a free download of a soundtrack for that issue written and recorded by the artist. Pretty neat.

Docela uspechany atmosfericky horor, ktery je takovy love letter Japonskym plizivym hororum ve stylu Silent Hill. Hlavni hrdina je poslan najit malou holcicku a jeji matku, ktera utekla od sveho otce. Mr Karr, se tedy vydava na ostrov o kterem se siri ruzna tajmestvi. Cele je to uzasne napinave a podivne, diky kresbe a coloringu divne veci opravdu vypadaji divne a davaji vam picit nejistoty. Sice to obcas selhava v ramci kresby obliceju ale hororove vyjevy Torresovi neskutecne sednou.

Co se tyce

Two out of five because that’s how many issues the atmospheric deep-freeze creepiness lasts before all is revealed and the plot becomes a runaround. More is promised, but not (IMO) required.

Baby, It's Cold Outside, (and In Here, Too)

I admire Cullen Bunn, although I enjoyed some series, ("The Sixth Gun"), more than others, ("Harrow County"). This is just the first issue of his new series, but it has all the hallmarks of an immersive creepfest.

The hero, Dan, is deadpan and edgy, and a bit broken, but he's quite accomplished at banter. Darkness creeps in from the edges of each panel, (and is sometimes front and center). A continuing theme of "unnatural cold" adds a creepy element that

The supernatural child: a staple in horror content, and a powerful tool in the hands of master spooky yarn-teller Cullen Bunn.

Dan Kerr gets a mysterious job from a powerful man he thought had spurned him forever. In the envelope of money, there is a picture of a familiar face. A lover from Dan’s past - the powerful man’s daughter, and her child. He is to find them both and this takes him to Quarrel Island, a place where the unseasonable cold isn’t the only thing making outsiders and residents a

A very, very good ghost comic – only spoilt in a minor way by too much of a Cthulhu influence in some artwork near the end. When token rich bloke asks bloke-he-dislikes to find his daughter and granddaughter, b-h-d doesn't mention the fact that he only need ask the butler where they are, nor that the younger female is his daughter by the older. But even with that knowledge there is a steep learning curve for disliked-bloke, as he encounters no end of dark and chilling goings-on on an isolated is ...more

I wanted to like this due to the cool colour choices and the occasionally good art but it felt like the quality diminished with each passing issue to the point where #5 was, at points, hard to read because some of the panels were a total mess. And the story isn't very original, putting together your basic "demon child" with barebones cosmic horror to little effect. A bit of wasted potential for sure.

I’m torn because I really enjoyed the story here. I just wasn’t a fan of the art. Considering that’s half the fun (or more) in a comic or graphic novel...
