ICE CREAM MAN IS ONE HOT COMMODITY
Debut issue of the anthology series sent back to print on day of release
Image Comics is thrilled to announce that the debut issue of W. Maxwell Prince (ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY) and Martín Morazzo’s (SNOWFALL) genre-defying anthology series ICE CREAM MAN is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.
Each installment of ICE CREAM MAN features its own cast of strange characters, each dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man: a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. The man who, with a snap of his fingers—lickety split!—can change the course of your life forever.
Select praise for ICE CREAM MAN:
“Prince is fast building an unusual resume in comics, and Morazzo’s style recalls the precise line work of greats like Frank Quitely. You’ll never look at ice cream trucks the same way after this one.” —Paste Magazine
“This series is an achievement in design and imagination, and it is incredibly good.” —The Oregonian
“Prince is a master at clean, sharp dialogue, filled with dry humor and a heavy dose of existential dread.”
“I felt like I was reading Willy Wonka meets The Howling,
which would honestly be one of the most epic mashups in comics.” —Horror News Network
“Taps into the center of the Venn Diagram of our collective nightmares. It’s also a seriously fun mash-up.”
“A haunting horror tale that is both entertaining and eerie.” —Impulse Gamer
“ICE CREAM MAN is a trippy, twisted, and surreal ride into suburban horror, and it’s just damn fun to read.”
—Monkeys Fighting Robots
“You’ll want a scoop of this comic because we’re in for a treat.” —Geek.com
“Don’t let the bright colors and happy smiles on the cover fool you—this comic is an anthology horror series and it’s downright terrifying. We loved it like we love mint chocolate chip ice cream, which is to say we loved it a lot.”
ICE CREAM MAN #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
