Writer W. Maxwell Prince, artist Martín Morazzo, and colorist Chris O’Halloran have created a tense and interesting series in The Ice Cream Man from Image Comics, and it’s coming to its first trade paperback collection this June. Which only seems appropriate as a season when those trucks are making the rounds through neighborhoods.
ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series, featuring disparate “one-shot” tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, 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. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers—lickety split!—can change the course of your life forever.
Ice Cream Man, Vol. 1: Rainbow Sprinkles (Diamond code: APR180546, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0675-2) arrives in comic shops Wednesday, June 20th and bookstores Tuesday, June 26th. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
