Review – Colder #2 of 5

Script: Paul Tobin
Art and Cover: Jaun Ferreyra

Published By: Dark Horse

This issue finds the very cold (literally) and mysterious Declan attempting to explain to the extremely confused Reece what the hell is going on. Declan has been in an essentially comatose state for years when he suddenly snaps out of it. As he and Reece walk around the city she begins to demand answers, but with each of Declan’s “answers”, Reece understands less and less. Declan is very hands on and decides to show Reece rather than tell her. We also see a man who knows Declan and seems, to put it lightly, off. This guy is wreaking havoc throughout the city and Declan knows that he and Reece need to make a quick getaway before the crazy mystery man catches up with them. In a quick instant we learn that Declan and this man have a very long history. Longer than expected!

This comic is pretty awesome, it’s interesting and very different from anything I have ever read. Reece is assertive but at the same time she is freaking out and Declan is calm but cryptic. Both of these characters play off of each other very well. Juan Ferreyra’s art is great, I really loved it and especially loved the monsters! The writing is great as well. In a kind of confusing story the dialogue really keeps everything on track. I’m not sure where this story is going but I’m excited to take the ride!
