Ice Cream Man Vol. 1: Rainbow Sprinkles Reviews
I really liked the art and I liked each individual story, but I felt that, as a whole, the stories were all over the place. I never really felt a connecting theme. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm still picking up the second volume, though. The last few pages promise quite an interesting continuation.
this is really uncomfortable. i like it.
being an anthology, though, some stories are better than others; that's inevitable.
3.5; a pleasingly offbeat, promising debut volume that gets a lot of mileage out of its enigmatic titular character, whose actions vary from mischievousness to pure malevolence, while the ending hints at the introduction of a larger mythology that is quite intriguing.
This one uses anthology-type storytelling to follow the (mis)deeds of a ghoulish character wreaking havoc on a small town by using their own vices against them. Intriguing premise, but not terribly cohesive. It ends with the promise of a larger picture so I'm intrigued...
This was seriously messed up stuff
La mezcla del tranquilo ambiente de los suburbios y el terror sobrenatural es genial.

I'm struggling with how to rate this one because--while I don't know how much I "enjoyed it"--this collection of episodes is well-written and darkly fascinating. It's quite strong for a collection of loosely linked stories--all connected by the enigmatic and threatening character of the Ice Cream Man. The art works well as each bright, disturbing, curious tale unfolds. And the conclusion of vol. 1 holds its own mystery and hints at more to come. I'll give it this much ...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.
