Bibliophilia: Colder – Paul Tobin & Juan Ferreyra

Colder – Paul Tobin & Juan Ferreyra

Besides having one of the most unsettling and memorable covers on a graphic novel I can recall seeing in a long time, this is a really good horror comic.

Declan Thomas was an inmate in an asylum that burned down in 1941. He’s been in a catatonic state ever since, cared for by a nurse called Reece. And hasn’t aged a day in a long time, partly because he is cold as an icicle. He is being pursued by a really creepy antagonist called Nimble Jack who can suck out the soul of his victims.

Juan Ferreyra is quickly becoming one of my favourite comic artists. And Paul Tobin is also the author of the wonderful, and far removed from this genre, Bandette.
