    The easiest selling point on Colder is the art. This book looks incredible. Juan Ferreyra does some of the most expressive, convincing character work I have ever seen in a comic book. Horror and darkness has never looked so damn pretty. Flip to the double-page spread of the theater filled with giant eyeball people. Stare at that and let its beauty sink into your skull. It'll haunt your dreams. And Nimble Jack? He's due for cult status any day now. Such a sinister character, both in design and execution. Read Colder. Do it. Stop what you are doing and read it.

    Colder #2 is even creepier than the first and gives the reader their first look into the horrifying world behind the eyes of the insane. The entire story is compelling to read and is matched with wonderful art from the talented Juan Ferreyra. There is no reason why any fan of psycho horror would not enjoy this issue. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Dec 6, 2012

    Ferreyra does a great job illustrating Jack's nightmarish powers. When Jack enters the mind of his victim, he tortures them with their internal fears. With immense glee, Jack conjures up monsters with elongated fingers and half a mouth. These are eerie images that will definitely stick in your mind after you have finished reading. To distinguish reality from unreality, Ferreyra depicts the real world with vibrant and blossoming colors. The surreal world is drained of color, with a major focus on the grey tones.

    The Fandom Post - John Rose Jan 11, 2013

    Where the first issue had a lot of dialogue that asked questions to which there where either no answers or answers that the cast asking couldn't know, the second issue provides a whole lot of the opposite as Declan shows Reece and the audience both the world he lives in now as well as the one he experienced along the way to his current place in life and the almost unbelievable existence he currently inhabits. While the visuals are amazing and the premise is remarkable unique there is a faint undertow that might make some find they can't really get into the narrative as it asks too much when meshed against a world they know too well from experience, first hand or otherwise, but those who can set that feeling aside or who don't have the experiences may discover that this title has the potential to be one of the gems of recent years.

    Comic Book Bin - Diego Chi Dec 6, 2012

    Tobin is weaving a dense plot into this five part mini-series. With how many questions have been posed so far, I'm not sure how he could wrap it all up in the three remaining issues. My doubts aside, the wealth of characters Tobin has created and the captivating world Ferreyra has drawn are more than enough to make this comic book an extremely enjoyable read. I will be with them until this creepy ride is over. Read Full Review

    You guys should really check this book out. The art, along with Nimble Jack, make this book worth checking out alone; never mind the story. However, there are a lot of awesome ideas in this that are also very fresh; which makes this book a joy to read. There are three issues left and I am sure each one will be as intriguing as the two that have come out. Read Full Review

    Other than that nit-pick that could be resolved with more story progression, there is a really cool world that’s unfolding in Dark Horse’s Colder. With some crazy rules and a dash of subtext, Colder has tightened its grip on my attention. So yeah let’s see where this bad boy goes. Read Full Review

    Overall, "Colder" #2 stumbles due to its narrative structure, but Tobin and Ferreyra's content is still fresh and unusual. With the information dump out of the way, perhaps the remainder of "Colder" will showcase more of Tobin's characterization and humor strengths while maintaining Ferreyra's artistic atmosphere and detail.
