In the early days of the pandemic, the team behind ICE CREAM MAN launched an online-only series of mini-comics set in the ICM universe.  The project was called, predictably, QUARANTINE COMIX. These strange little ditties were meant to tide folks over while the industry was on pause-and also raise money for struggling comic shops, with 50 percent of all proceeds donated to Comicbook United Fund/BINC.

Now, collected in everyone's preferred format (a floppy comic book!) are all six issues of QUARANTINE COMIX, featuring brand-new cover art and bonus stories by guest creators.

    Shorter stories and guest artists don't destroy the horrific mystique off Ice Cream Man's terror-filled little world, but (as always) sensitive readers should proceed with care. Read Full Review

    I Am What I Am (A Sonnet) is a very relatable short story, but not quite what I expect from Ice Cream Man. There's nothing truly horrifying about the prospect, at least not to me. I see what they were going for, but it just wasn't quite so effective.
