Things have ground to a halt. Things are frozen. People have halted in mid-stride. It’s The Freeze, first issue, from Image/ Top Cow.

The Freeze is written by Dan Wickline, with art by Phillip Sevy, and it starts off with either an abduction or a rescue. We’re not sure which. It’s a great rollicking start, and then we are thrown back to the beginning of the tale.

The Freeze a good story, if a bit drawn out. Depending on your reading preference, the detailed recounting of all the early events either might bore you, or pull you further into the plot. Either way, the art, and story are very well suited. The colour palette of The Freeze tends to be purples, browns, and yellows. It’s all heading into interesting territory, so if the central concept grabs you, I think this issue is a good one to check out!

Image/ Top Cow, The Freeze #1, 22 pages of story with 7 more pages of extra reading. Assume Teen + rating

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
