    Iceman‘s return is much appreciated and much enjoyed. Sina Grace goes for a lighter, more humorous tone, and it definitely works for the character and the comic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 15, 2018

    Just like its protagonist at times,Iceman#1 is a highly confident start to Sina Grace, Nathan Stockman, and Federico Blee's new series. It gives Bobby both a personal life as well as integrating him into the X-Men as a team, has well laid out action, and the most groan-worthy of dad jokes plus quirky banter between him and Bishop. As an added bonus, Grace writes the Morlocks with respect and empathy transforming them into badasses, who fight for their home and friends and won't conform to society's standards instead of empty cannon fodder like in the original “Mutant Massacre” story.

    Iceman #1 is a triumphant return of Sina Grace and Bobby Drake. The story is fast, fun, and is full of good lines. The personality is still here, and the addition of Nathan Stockman and Federico Blee is a good fit. This book comes with a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Sep 18, 2018

    Iceman is a fun, mutant romp that promises buddy cop action and a clear direction, although lacks the punch of the previous series and its exploration of Bobbys inner workings, growth, and exploration. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 15, 2018

    Iceman #1 is a solid start to the latest solo adventure involving Bobby Drake. Sina Grace puts in a lot of work to set the groundwork for how Iceman will grow over the course of this series. Though because of how dialogue heavy this issue is there are times that Iceman comes off as annoying rather than likable hero. It's these moments that may turn some readers off who aren't used to how Iceman is portrayed in the X-Men books. Read Full Review

    While fans of Grace's previous run will enjoy the continued adventures of Bobby Drake in Iceman #1, there's enough flaws in the execution that may leave new readers cold. Read Full Review

    Iceman returns to protagonist duty. The soap opera/slice of life stuff at the start (in the vein of his last series) goes over like a lead balloon, but things get much more promising when he and Bishop fight a pocket Mutant Massacre with the Morlocks. Decent art throughout, good foreshadowing, and excellent plotting suggest this series will develop nicely if Sina Grace continues to lean on solid X-Men tropes.

    Why is Ice Man back for another series? Who knows? Does anyone care that it’s back...probably not.
    This comic was plain and simple not worth $3.99.
    The artist does a really good job, but Sina Grace needs to learn how to write dialogue effectively, the actual plot was decent at least.
    If you really enjoyed the first iceman series then this is just more of the same so you’ll probably like it, if not then stay away because it’s not worth your time or money.

    12 issues in and Iceman still references his sexual orientation enough to make a drinking game out of. How does Sina Grace find work as a writer?
