Ice Cream Man Vol. 1: Rainbow Sprinkles Reviews
The best thing I’ve read all year. A sharp, funny, surreal, surprising nightmare. Like Grant Morrison meets Hitchcock. The Ice Cream Man is this bizarre trickster demi-god going around screwing with the mind space of a small unaware town. And beautifully illustrated. I’ll leave it that.
*I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*
I had no idea what to expect with this graphic novel. What I got was an adult Goosebumps comic, pretty much. There are four different stories in this book. They each involve the Ice Cream Man, but in different ways. The juxtaposition of the classic ice cream truck and the gruesome deaths gives the book a modern, creepy feel.
The first story involves a boy and his pet spider. The second deals with dr ...more
This was just terrible. It didn't make any sense, was predictable, boring, silly, not scary, random and dropped the ball narratively. The art is good, and the last story was at least a nice character study - but even that didn't make any sense as it didn't match the rest of the stories in the book. I have no idea what the point of this book is.
This is an anthology series where each issue is a self-contained story with different characters. What pulls them together as a collection is that they all feature the Ice Cream Man. While one of the stories was decidedly horror as a whole I'd rather call them weird tales. The first was the best of the four contained here. After that, they decreased in interest for me and I found the entire gimmick got old fast. I'll say that each story does have a bit of a thrill to make it a decent enough way ...more
That was actually totally scary. It pulls out and shows the darkest parts of the characters.
I can’t wait to read more, and to figure out WHAT THE FRICK FRAK IS GOING ON.
Plus, who on earth is the man in Black?
This comic was so freaking strange!!! I really enjoyed it though. The artwork was interesting and the stories...they were crazy. If you haven’t read this definitely give it a chance. I’ll be posting my full review here once it goes live on my blog.

This is a triply little volume of stories. A local ice cream man becomes a catalyst in the outcomes of several people’s lives: a desperate junkie, a one hit wonder song writer, a young boy with a deadly pet.
There seems an unworldliness about the ice cream vendor and maybe a touch of evil. This series is part of Gerad Way’s imprint Young Animal for DC comics
Really weird, freaky tales. The first couple of stories were the better ones.
