    In a book of nice touches, I could have easily just filled this review with Mr. Freeze style puns and you would probably still pick it up, it's that good. However, with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and a story that seems both familiar and fresh, this could be the beginning of an instant classic. Read Full Review

    That was awesome! It's like a mix of a gang movie mashed with Mad Max. I can already tell that the characters created are going to be some that will make me want to come back to this comic over and over again. Even on issue three the storyline is laid out easily and within the first half you know exactly what is going on. The art was really cool, a watercolor vibe that painted each scene beautifully. Just when you think there this story leans more towards realistic fiction, you're given wicked ice queens and evil firemen. It was just great overall and easily my book of the week. A Must Read!

    Fantastic, dramatic writing from Williamson with deep characters, and fantastic visuals from Alexander. The violence, the unknown of being stuck in an Ice Age screams off of every page. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 23, 2016

    Frostbite is hard hitting and genuine in its ability to make violence seem meaningful and real. This issue speeds ahead too quickly at times, but it's still well worth your time. Frostbite is gritty real and thrilling. Do not miss it! Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Dec 17, 2016

    Frostbite is the alternate, colder version of Mad Max we didn't know we wanted, but are eternally grateful it exists.  Two people are thrown together on a life-or-death road trip.  The body count has only grown since they began this trip and it shows no signs of stopping.  We'll see how that is affected once secrets start coming to the surface.

    Comic Bastards - Mike Badilla Nov 23, 2016

    The rest of the book is so exciting, I'm not even going to ruin it. Art on this book: strange. It had times that I really liked it, both the coloring and the art style, but I didn't feel the art overall was level across the book. Sometimes I thought it was ugly and sloppy. The story overall was good. I need to find out more about the whole frostbite thing, as far as if it's some virus or if the guy actually has frostbite, which would be awful. The final part of the book with the big action scene was quite good and enjoyable, the art not letting me down at all. I'm also enjoying the whole story taking place in this snowy setting versus some of the more popular apocalyptic future settings. I'm also a really big fan of Joshua Williamson's book Nailbiter, so you know I'll be back for more. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 26, 2016

    This issue was a bit of a down turn for me. I don't know what exactly made it this way. The story has slowed down a bit and the veneer of this world has begun to wear off. However, it is still a good story and the action fest in the middle was good even if it had been done already by Mad Max: The Road Warrior and Mad Max: Fury Road. I still enjoy it and I don't know what we will get next issue, maybe it will become more survival horror? Anyway I give this issue a… Read Full Review

    Frostbite still remains one of the best new limited series from Vertigo Comics currently running. It's definitely a top of the pile read. Read Full Review
