Their only chance at survival got its head blown off, screaming bodiless robots are after them and enemy forces begin circling for the kill. The Cryonauts scramble for safety from the battlefield, led by kindly grandmother Vinh to higher ground as the dark secrets of this future war and the ones fighting it begin to reveal themselves. From Chris Sebela, writer of Blue Beetle, Kiss/Vampirella and Evolution, and Hayden Sherman, artist of The Few and John Carter The End, comes the story that HAD to be told at AfterShock!

    Christopher Sebela and Hayden Sherman's Cold War is exactly the punch in the mouth that comics needs right now. Read Full Review

    The strongest reason to read this book is you will not know what's around the next corner: some robotic monstrosity trying to kill the heroes or a memory that will bring them to their knees. The visuals are also insane with antagonists constructed by an unknown dark god, heroes bathed in ebony darting through a city, and colors that create shocks and horrors. This Cold War isn't hell, it's heaven. Read Full Review

    While I would have liked to have had a bit more about what's actually going on here, the second issue of Cold War keeps the momentum going from the first as it shifts to Vinh. The structure works well enough but avoids being a repeat of the first issue and that's definitely a whole lot of fun to watch unfold. I do want to know more of the truth of the world and what's going on but at the moment I'm enjoying the tour de force of chaos and creativity that Sebela and Sherman are employing here. I can easily see why this book may not be for everyone but it delivers something really fun for me and stands out even amid a pile of creative standouts that AfterShock has put together the last few years.

    Thus far Cold War #2 could definitely find interest from fans outside of normal comic readers, and I could see myself plucking down some cash to go see this in a movie theatre. Read Full Review

    Cold War #2 takes a step forward in character but a step back in plot. Essentially, its in a similar place that Cold War #1 was in terms of overall quality. As such, Im still intrigued enough by to recommend it with some confidence, but it does need to decide where its going soon. In any case, feel free to give it a try. Read Full Review

    Semi confusing, but definitely still enjoyable. I liked the first issue a little better, but this was pretty good too. We are slowly getting answers and more characters come to play.

    I really like this story. The 1st issue Rook who you think is the main protagonist is taken out and from there set the bar for this bizarre, but fun comic that Sebela is writing and I know ppl don't like Hayden Sherman's art. You either love it or hate it, and I really like Sherman's gritty style it's different and goes good with the stories. So far I've seen Sherman draw John Carter The End where I first saw Sherman's art, then in Image's The Few and now this. Really like Aftershock's ride range of genre's and one of my favorite Publishers out..
