    If you’re squeamish, try not to linger on the visuals that much. Overall, this book is perfect! The writing is so in depth and entertaining, and the artwork complements it perfectly. It’s a really nasty book that you have to read. It’s for your own good, I promise. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 29, 2015

    Colder: Toss the Bones is filled with the kind of horror that seeps into your skin, spreading to every fiber of your being until you're too frightened to turn the page.  You can't help yourself though.  You have to see what happens, even if that means going down the rabbit hole of insanity that is Nimble Jack and the Hungry World.  While this is the final chapter in the Colder trilogy, creators Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra are just getting started. Read this on the toilet because it may scare the crap out of you. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris White Sep 4, 2015

    Im so in love with Colder: Toss the Bones #1. It sets the bar for horror and sits next to other great writers in the genre, watching all the pretenders fall in its shadow. With an end that sets up the future of the series excellently, it is clear that the weird and wonderful world of Colder is just getting warmed up. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Sep 3, 2015

    I am not a true horror fan. I tend to watch stuff and then its percolates over a period of time. As such, jumpy shock films tend not to have an impact, whereas more thoughtful stuff really does make me think. This book is kind of like the latter. At first, its easy to dismiss the book as noise but it bears re-reading. Take some time. What you may find is a story that is more human than demon that will keep you thinking. Read Full Review

    Colder: Toss the Bones #1 aptly starts what looks to be a very compelling horror story. There are many fun and bone-chilling stylistic tools in place that make this issue an enjoyable and satisfying read. You will not soon be able to purge Nimble Jack's menacing character from your brain. This is a truly frightening comic with a pitch-perfect villain. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Sep 4, 2015

    "Colder: Toss The Bones" #1 is the beginning of the end and while there's reason to be sad, it's going to be exciting watching these three characters' stories come to a close. Tobin's writing it top notch and Ferreyra continues to blow us away with his killer artwork. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Sep 7, 2015

    If you havent been chilled to your core by Colder before, go back and delve into the madness before jumping into Toss The Bones #1. For those that are fluent in its consternate calamity, it satisfyingly delivers with a newfound sense of control. Declan and especially Reece have inexplicably rationalized and compartmentalized all thats come before, but Tobin and Ferreyra look to upend what shaky foundations theyve managed to build. The lithe horror that is Nimble Jack is back and like the mechanics of the Colder Universe itself, virtually without boundaries. (On Sale September 30th!) Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Zac Kandell Sep 30, 2015

    The story ends on a slightly disappointing cliffhanger, but that's nowhere near as important as everything the comic does right. I come out of it looking forward to the next issue and where this story might go next. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Oct 2, 2015

    It's possible the next issue will break from this kind of steady and deliberate pacing for a more action oriented approach but I actually really hope it doesn't. If we're going to continue seeing Colder stories it'll be good for the books to branch beyond the standard action adventure approach and embrace the vast range of stories that can be told with such a unique and innovative central mythos and Colder: Toss The Bones is a great first step on that path.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 23, 2015

    Colder: Toss The Bones #1 isn't bad by any means. It's just that it's pretty basic if you're familiar with the storyline. Sure Nimble Jack is great and his return is interesting, but there wasn't an "oh shit" moment in this issue to really hook you. If you're a fan of the series though then definitely pick it up, it's a solid continuation to one of the more interesting horror series out there. Read Full Review
