The start of their journey did not go exactly as planned, but Keaton made a deal to get Vic to Alcatraz safely, and nothing will dissuade her from carrying out her contract. With their main transport knocked out, and roving gangs looking to block their path, Keaton and crew are going to have to get clever if they're going to stay alive.

    Bundle up and get reading. Don't wait for the trade paperback. That would feel like cheating. This story is going to be best consumed in small bites that leave you hungry for more. Oh, and, there is a last scene that makes you worry. Well, it made me worry. Keaton…Look out. Read Full Review

    All in all this issue kept up intriguing me and giving me enough answers to my questionsto not get pissed. It balanced the questions and answers very well. The art was amazingin both the style of the drawing and the use and restraint of color. There is a greatamount of action as well and done right so that the pacing is on point. Read Full Review

    Gritty science fiction storytelling that's incredible real. It's well worth a look if you like a thought provoking story with a strong premise. Read Full Review

    Yes, I'm comparing Jason Shawn Alexanders' art to George Millers visually stunning direction. Frostbite is that good visually. I for one can't wait until the next issue. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Oct 27, 2016

    After an incredibly strong opening chapter, things take a noticeable step back here, leaving Frostbite balancing on the precipice of becoming just another post-apocalyptic science fiction book. However, with Williamson and Alexander at the helm, Im supremely confident that the ship will be able to quickly right itself, and that well be back to capitalising on this fascinating premise again before too long.

    There's an undoubtedly interesting dynamic in play, what with Keaton needing Victoria to help cure her of her illness, while also harboring the secret of Victoria's murdered father. And yet, Williamson's dialogue is so on-the-nose in presenting those connections that it almost ruins seeing them play out. Read Full Review

    So for me, Frostbite #2 wasn't great, but at least I managed to get to the end of it. If you're following it, I'm thinking that the next issue will probably have all the action in it that this issue was lacking. From that final page, I think it's about to turn into Mad Max: Fury Road on Ice up in this piece" You'll have to let me know though, because I won't be reading it. Read Full Review
