    Kabooooom - Roy Buckingham Aug 2, 2019

    The Ice Cream Man has definitely evolved into The Twilight Zone of comics, and makes me wonder if the ghost of Rod Sterling is guiding the hands of the team behind this comic. Quite possibly the most emotionally unsettling yet fascinating issue of this title to date, I cannot wait to see what is down the line. Read Full Review

    Reading the same comic essentially twice, and then again as you try it from start-to-finish or finish-to-start remains engaging. Given the length of this particular issue that seem almost impossible, and so Ice Cream Man #13 does the impossible in walking up to the very edge of its own formalist limitations without going over. For that alone it should be commended. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Aug 1, 2019

    Ice Cream Man (2018-) #13 takes on an ambitious task of being a complete palindrome, and succeeds at its task. The art is great and reflects the tones of the story, and the story itself is engaging and carries the same darker tones as the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Aug 2, 2019

    I can't say I love Ice Cream Man #13 " but I do damn well admire the craft and effort put in by all concerned to make it work. The lettering by Good Old Neon in places serves ably to underpin characterisation and mood. The art and writing I've mentioned before. It is a hard read, as there's no hope, no chance for redemption for the main character. But this entire run Ice Cream Man comics will undoubtedly stand the test of time in years to come. It's that good. Read Full Review
