    Colder #5 was the epic conclusion to a thrilling series. It packed a lot of great elements of the series: the humor, the chills, the "insane" world and the creepy dude, Nimble Jack. Fans of fantasy's more dreary side should without a doubt look into this fun series. Here's to hoping Tobin and Ferreyra bring us a second serving! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 6, 2013

    All this aforementioned horror and violence is rendered in terrible detail by Juan Ferreyra. It's absolutely insane how good this issue looks. There are stakes jamming through eyes, dogs tearing dudes apart and so much blood you feel like you are swimming in it. Ferreyra has superstar written all over him and the words are written in blood. Visually, this book is leaps and bounds above 99% of the other books on the stands. Whatever Ferreyra does next, buy it. Keep this man creating, he's too good to ever stop. Read Full Review

    This comic was a perfect example of using art to really tell the story. The dialogue was great too, though. I strongly recomend picking this one up, and I definately plan to go pick up the previous issues so I can get the rest of the story! Read Full Review

    Colder #5 isn't a satisfactory ending, but that appears to be Paul Tobin's intent. This issue is satisfactory because it is left open for further exploration. The only thing that could make it truly unsatisfactory is if Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra never return to this story. Expect to be blown away by this issue, and expect great things to come.

    AiPT! - Sean Mar 6, 2013

    The romantic subplot is a little hamfisted, but otherwise it's a great ending to a great series. Colder has defied my expectations right out of the gate. Starting with that wonderful first cover, it wormed its way into my brain, and has kept my attention until the very last panel. Bravo Tobin and Ferreyra. I tip my hat to you, good sirs.

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 6, 2013

    I pretty much praised this series as much as I could. Buy the issues or wait for the TPB, you’re in for a wild ride. This issue gets a 9 and the entire mini series gets a 10. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Mar 11, 2013

    Horror today shocks more than scares and this book accomplishes both as this is an intense thriller that will take you on a ride you won't soon forget. The only bad thing about this book is that it is the finale. Read Full Review

    Ending on a spectacular note, readers will be very satisfied with the finale in “Colder” #5. Definitely pick up the “Colder” series for the amazing artwork. I am very excited to see what the next projects will be for writer Paul Tobin and artist Juan Ferreyra. These are two names you have to look out for. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - John Rose Mar 14, 2013

    Colder wraps up its unique tale of horror as its protagonist Declan is dragged through the wringer and forced to visit part of his origin by the creature that has been setting him up to be devoured for decades and he is going to have to be greater than he ever imagined if he has any hope of surviving- let alone saving the person who has become so special to him. With its mix of humor, surreal environment and menacing antagonist Colder serves up a fitting ending for the story that has been built so far and readers will find any enjoyable meal in it, though perhaps not quite the feat they had hoped for at the outset.

    Den Of Geek! - Ethan Lewis Mar 12, 2013

    I was a bit disappointed in how this story ended. Most of Colder #5 was a wrap up of the previous issues. Which is fine but I was hoping for more. Still, the story is incredible, from the multiple references to Nietzsche to the incredibly creepy and delightfully horrifying language about cannibalism. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 6, 2013

    I don’t think this is a bad issue or ending by any means. I bet that when this series is read together it’s marvelous and the ending is fitting and killer. On its own though, the ending is just okay and not great, but not bad and has a satisfying resolution for sure. I’m going to miss this series and especially Nimble Jack since he brightened my week each issue, but it has been a fun ride. Read Full Review
