There are lies. There are secrets. And then, there's FROST. A rescue operation to recover an American asset from the heart of an Afghani warlord's stronghold turns into a deadly struggle for survival...and there's nowhere else Frost would rather be...

    Readers will do well to give this action story a try. With its introductory 0-issue at no cost, and an engaging first issue, the only drawback is the wait for more. Read Full Review

    It's pretty rare when it happens, but it's a nice surprise when a story can pull off the hyper testosterone tone, without sacrificing quality or character. Writers Brandon Jerwa and Eric Trautmann do just that with Frost #1. Read Full Review

    Trautmann has a strong interest in espionage and military, and his printed work largely over at DC (like The Shield and JSA/Kobra) really was a testament to how adept he is at writing this stuff, so in advance I knew he could be trusted to both deliver the action, the bad-ass character and not be so hoary about it. Make no mistake, Frost is definitely a "men's action" product. The character is equally Jason Bourne as he is Mack Bolan, and the first 99-cent, 16-page issue really gets into it, how Frost's past as a raised-from-childhood military weapon informs his current follow-his-own-path nature. Of course there's gunplay, punching and explosions as well, but there's actual character seeded in the midst of all that roughhousing. Read Full Review

    This book is very different from a lot of Monkey Brain's titles, but it's good because it diversifies the titles they're offering. Granted this is more of an action title than anything else, but if you're looking for a realistic set story with some plot exaggerations then it's definitely worth checking out. I know I'll be back for more as I hope that they continue to sprinkle Frost's past into each issue. Read Full Review
