‘Tis the season to be terrified, and with Halloween fast approaching it seems right that the Colder team have a book released. It’s a slow burner this time around, at least compared to Swivel, but no less haunting. I can now add stray dogs to my list, and I’ll never be answering the door again; never mind eating outside.

Tobin seems to have an uncanny knack for finding little mundane things and twisting them just enough, or adding another element to make them downright horrifying. Remember that time when you were sure you turned the light off, but it was still on? What if you had, and something else turned it on to mess with you?

It’s no secret here at BCP Towers that we’re fans of the Colder series art, and this issue is just as fabulous. From the clean lines, to the ravenous faces of dogs, Ferrerya effortlessly blends the beautiful with the downright disturbing. I’ve even found myself playing a new game of “find the pigeon” when I read the book now, because there’s so any hidden away.

Always a solid winner, it preys on your subconscious in a way you shouldn’t enjoy, but will leave you dying for more.


Rating: 5/5.
