Dan has tracked his estranged wife and daughter to a dreary island off the coast of North Carolina-and the closer he gets, the colder his surroundings become. A cold so deep it can freeze the flesh from your bones lingers in the air, and Dan is starting to believe his daughter might be the key to this dawning, bone-chilling supernatural winter.

    Cullen Bunn and Mark Torres have delivered another amazing horror comic book issue with a dark story that is full of depth. The story continues to become more interesting with every little bit that Bunn reveals and it hasn’t lacked momentum yet. This second issue is a very entertaining follow up to a fantastic debut issue and I am overly eager for more. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Sep 26, 2018

    With these early issues, Bunn and Torres are building the tension in a way that reminds me of the best suspense/horror movies. They lead you from normal to unusual to disturbing at such a deliberate pace that you are never sure when the world they build became one of of inescapable horror. You get the feeling that if Dan ran now, he could escape what's coming, but he can't leave those who are important to him behind. Read Full Review

    But that all is very minor. Cold Spots is an interesting story so far, with great, creepy art, and I'm looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 25, 2018

    Cold Spots continues to show a slow build to the supernatural threat allowing for good scene setting and character development. Dan Kerr is by no means a hero, but it looks like he is going to have to become one in order to live long enough to find out what is going on and to save his daughter. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Sep 25, 2018

    Cold Spots has managed to establish a perfectly-eerie mood with only two issues. The visuals and characters here all support the same chilly vibe, and the end result is a great Halloween season read. Read Full Review

    This series has stepped up its game dramatically and given that I was really impressed with the first issue this bodes well for the continuing story. Heres to more chills, shivers and genuine horror from a team that really knows its stuff! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 27, 2018

    I feel the story improved a lot in Cold Spots #2. Having the information from the first issue and what is given in this issue made for a much clearer story and the mystery still holds tight while delivering bits and pieces to keep the reader on board. Cold Spots #2 has an eerie atmospherethat works tremendouslywell to up the horror aspect of this series. The art of the buildings and vehicles looks great and the ghastlyfigures are renderedwell. It is too bad the actual people in the issue do not share the same detail and clarity of everything else. The story is intriguing enough to keep me on board and Bunn is starting to let some details out. Despite not liking Torres' character drawings, I do love the moody atmosphere he paints Cold Spots #2 with. Read Full Review
