Okay, I am usually such a huge fan of this comic book series. But, this one was a complete letdown.
First of all, there is absolutely NO written content to this issue at all, just a few minor sound effects. Then, we are watching three different stories happen simultaneously, none of which seem to really make all that much sense. It’s almost like the pictorial ramblings of a comic book artist. I can’t even understand why there’s even a written credit given, there’s no writing!!!
The artwork is good enough but, why no story?
It seems like this series is fading. The first couple issues were great and now it’s just plummeting into nothingness on colorful paper.
I can’t even really begin to explain what this nonsensical mystery is. It looks like the same guy going through three separate lives…kinda like a “what if?” kind of thing I guess. But it’s not clear to me if this is three different time spans of his life, three different possibilities or what? I’m thinking it’s three different possibilities depending on the choice of direction the guy makes for his life. Almost like any one decision you make will affect your entire life kind of plot.
I have to be honest, I hate it when I read something and I’m left feeling confused and robbed. This issue felt like the writer just bailed and left the artists to pick up the pieces. The only really good thing about this issue was that we got back to the ice cream names in the title. I like that part.
I am strongly considering discontinuing my purchases of this series. It’s pissing me off.
Ice cream is my favorite thing in the world, but this movie kind of ruined it for me. Seeing grotesque and gory scenes just made me want to barf. I want to go and change my life, though. It will probably take a lot of time before I can eat ice cream again, and it will never be the same. It was a good movie, don't get me wrong, but I just hated how they used ice cream, man.
