Last month, Josh Williamson (NailBiter) tweeted this gruesome cover and it immediately piqued my interest. Colder: The Bad Seed is written by Paul Tobin with artist Juan Ferreyra. A few tweets back and forth from writer Paul Tobin had me sold on this book. There’s something about a horror comic book that speaks to my inner
demons spirit and I HAVE to purchase them the day it arrives.
Earlier this month during New York Comic Con, I made my way to the Dark Horse booth where Paul Tobin was signing. After introducing myself to him (he remembered our twitter convo; bonus points.) we spoke about Colder, little did I know that there was a previous book which was Eisner-nominated! Of course I picked up Colder and Paul was nice enough to sign it for me. He told me that Colder: The Bad Seed IS a must have. Now while the book doesn’t come out until Wednesday, the 22nd, if you scroll down some I have a little preview for you.
THE EISNER-NOMINATED SERIES RETURNS AS AN ONGOING!
Life goes on for Declan Thomas after his deadly encounter with the psychotic Nimble Jack, but Declan’s strange powers continue to develop, offering him a profound connection with the nature of insanity. Little does he know that the malevolent Swivel wishes to pick up where Nimble Jack left off!
SICK! Isn’t it? While Declan may not know who the man in the hat is, you can bet your last dollar Mr. Fingernose knows about Declan. Tell me you peeped the man in the hat has a freaking FINGERNOSE!! Juan Ferreyra’s artwork throughout the book is exactly what nightmares are made of. Don’t judge me when I tell you that I had to look away from the book a few times. My stomach turned into a washing machine with how much it was turning. I even dry-heaved a little. It’s a strong possibility that I will have to sleep with the light on and I’m okay with that.
I don’t even want to drink milk anymore because of Colder: The Bad Seed. I welcome osteoporosis. And Lice. Yep, I welcome lice. If horror is your thing, pick up this book, you will NOT be disappointed. Now, you might be a little startled, but as long as you don’t judge me, I won’t judge you.
