Ice Cream Man Vol. 1: Rainbow Sprinkles Reviews
This book reminds me of my nightmares.
Ice Cream Man is an anthology of different stories ranging from extreme loss, drug addiction, human depravity, and straight up horrifying terror. The Ice Cream Man seems to be the purveyor of suffering; his ice cream, a special flavor served up to special people, takes them to their darkest, most horrifying places.
Definitely a great pick for adult readers who like horror titles.
I received the ARC from Image Comics.
This one uses anthology-type storytelling to follow the (mis)deeds of a ghoulish character wreaking havoc on a small town by using their own vices against them. Intriguing premise, but not terribly cohesive. It ends with the promise of a larger picture so I'm intrigued...
Another story hovering on the borders of anthology from the writer of One Week in the Library, and this at least avoids one of the big problems there in that, unlike that library with no readers or borrowers, the linking figure here does sell ice cream to customers.

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
*I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*
I had no idea what to expect with this graphic novel. What I got was an adult Goosebumps comic, pretty much. There are four different stories in this book. They each involve the Ice Cream Man, but in different ways. The juxtaposition of the classic ice cream truck and the gruesome deaths gives the book a modern, creepy feel.
The first story involves a boy and his pet spider. The second deals with dr ...more
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.
