    EDENFROST #1 is a beautifully rendered, gripping, historical fantasy tale about siblings on the run from Russian soldiers and a stony giant. Tishlers script dares you not to care about two children running from a cold, cruel world, and Frendas art is immaculate. Read Full Review

    Frenda is so good. From composition to color, Frenda's design choices and emotive skills bring the story to life. The clean lines and framing of a scene for maximum effect make this not only great to read but also great to view. There isn't a bad panel in the entire issue.  Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 22, 2023

    Edenfrost #1 is an interesting comic that feels like an alternate world fantasy but it's very much entrenched in the real world. It should be intriguing to see where it goes and how much it focuses on the Antisemitism that still exists today. There's also the myth of the Golem, which while widely used, its Jewish roots are often overlooked and diminished. It's an aspect that opens up a world that's not known to many. Edenfrost #1 is a debut that kicks off a story and world full of potential. Read Full Review

    Amidst the snow-capped hills of war-torn Ukraine, teenage siblings Alex and Yuli have lost all but each other in the chaos of the Russian Civil War. Their journey becomes a fight for survival in the face of warfare, but when the siblings uncover the mystical powers of a Golem, will they finally find their place in the world?


    I have been looking forward to reading this having seen the solicitations. There is a great deal of atmosphere right from the start of the issue. You can feel it as you read through and the story unfolds, given the history and real world events of the time how could you more
