Viking warriors Hrolf, Sigrid, and the Laxdale clan continue their war against the alien invaders, traipsing across medieval Europe. Frostbite picks up where the last Spider King volume ended, as the clan make their way through an ominous snowstorm and are attacked by swarms of biting, fighting, talking animals.

The return to the sold-out and critically-acclaimed hit, The Spider King, begins here!

    It's recommended that you read the previous volume before this one, just so you can get the full scope of the characters' goals and backgrounds. Otherwise it works well enough as a self-contained one-off and contains much of the same charm and style that made the first volume so great. Don't miss this one. Read Full Review

    Where the mini-series introduces us to this world and these characters, The Spider King: Frostbite shows how widespread and dangerous this alien invasion really is. Hrolf's journey is far from over. There will be many more monsters in his path, but he is not backing down. If anything, this has strengthened his resolve. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jan 8, 2019

    A fun, enjoyable romp with a mix of Sci-Fi and Fantasy that boarders on horror but never goes to far to put off younger readers. Energetic art work and some clever lettering makes this one-shot stand out from the crowd. Read Full Review
