    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Apr 25, 2018

    Ice Cream Man #4 should be read immediately by anyone reading this. It is the most fun you’ll have reading a comic book that is also making you depressed and kind of scared. This team has taken so many terribly real things about life and artistically created a comic book of them so that we can see these nightmares outside of our minds. This fourth issue is another perfect comic book to add to the first three. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Apr 27, 2018

    This was another great issue of a fun series. This time round though there is a sense of an issue which is now starting to establish linkages with a broader piece of storytelling, and we seem to be getting a greater level of story continuation in a series that has consisted of (seemingly) standalone issues to date. The ending with the appearance of a tall dark stranger in a cowboy hat has me dying to see how things develop in this series. Read Full Review

    Not for the faint of heart, but still a touching and/or horrifying tale. Well worth the read. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 23, 2018

    Ice Cream Man is all about the subtle creepiness and horrors of everyday life. You might not have to leave the lights on for this one, but it is haunting nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Hunter T. Patrick Apr 25, 2018

    You do not need to have read the first three issues for any context for the primary story in this issue, but for the overall book, it will help. This should not only be made for horror fans but also people wanting a strong story about humans and our fears over loss. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Apr 28, 2018

    We'll have to keep reading to find out, but this issue took big steps towards this being more than just another horror anthology. Ice Cream Man #4 managed to give us all these questions and tell another effective horror story up front. The next issue isn't coming until July so we've plenty of time to theorize! Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Folkard Apr 25, 2018

    Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable chapter in this series. I liked the interaction between Joel and Chris' father and I also loved the horrifying interlude that we see involving Chris. There was one particular scene involving Joel and Chris' father that bugged me a little, but aside from that I thought it was pretty ace. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Apr 25, 2018

    It's clear that this series has bigger ideas, but on the level of an individual issue that present a story that work in neither the micro nor the macro, which is particularly disappointing in this installment. Read Full Review
