Ice Cream Man, Vol. 2: Strange Neapolitan Reviews

    The Ice Cream Man, Volume 2, is better than the first volume! I think both the writing and the art seem better, more coherent, like it is finding its true center. This is horror, featuring an evil Ice Cream man and a dark cowboy, Caleb, that suggests an over-arching narrative. Each of ...

    Man, what a fantastic ride this was. I had left the last three issues till late for some reason or the other and upon finishing them last night, I wondered why I ever took so long. Issue #10 was definitely a favourite with the whole reality tv scenario worked into the crazy, and at tim...

    There is this scene in Sandman, in the first volume, where Doctor Dee is in a diner with a buch of people and they (along with the rest of the country/world(?)) start unravelling into madness and horror. That scene made a huge impression on me when I first read it at a young age, one o...

    Still a very weird book, although the stories verge on dark and depressing this time out. We also get introduced to a cowboy character, Caleb, who seems to be there to balance out the darker impulses of the Ice Cream Man, whose name is Riccardus. I think the story I liked best was the ...

    This run goes from being interesting to amazing in this collection. The title story, as it were, is some of the most incredible storytelling I?ve seen in comics - and the weirdness keeps ratcheting up, tale by tale. ...

    I suppose anthologies of unsettling semi-horror probably aren't for me. I have so many questions about the Ice Cream Man and the tiny threads of specific commonality between stories, but I don't think answered those questions is the point of this story. I did very much enjoy the Nea...

    As good as the first, maybe even better! So far the Ice cream man has done a nice job of keeping a creepy pace. Its still an anthology and you dont even really need to read the first to know whats going on. Multiple lives, real imaginary friends and creepy clowns are just a few things...

    Vultures feast on corporate executives? innards, knife-wielding psychos in bird masks torture random strangers, a cowboy battles a demon, paramedics get high and drive around ignoring injured peeps, a clown commits suicide, and everything?s on fire - it?s the 2018 state of mind I...

    I love this series because it is in a one-shot story format but still play a role, even if minute, to the big picture. I felt the need to reread the first volume before jumping into this one. Its not necessary but fun never the less. My gosh! I have so many questions. Coming off the...

    3.5 Stars This is a collection of weird and gruesome horror stories that are loosely tied together by the creepy Ice Cream Man. Some of the stories were better than others. I didn?t completely understand some of the panels. However, I still enjoyed this volume and thought these stor...

    This definitely had a different tone then the first volume, but I still loved it. I also should preface this review by saying I'm not really into scary things, but if it's published by Image I'll give anything a try and so far this series has been so interesting to me. We still didn't ...

    This is a weird horror comic book, it?s starting to get form, and I?m just tempted to see what?s going to happen. By next issue it?s in a point we?re it can become and amazing Story, or just another shitty thing ...

    I thought the first volume of Ice Cream Man was great, but Strange Neapolitan blew me away. I was absolutely struck by the creativity, art style, and underlying horror. This volume features four separate issues, but the main issue called Strange Neapolitan is a masterpiece. I don't bel...

    After the erratic but eccentric stories of the first volume, I was hopeful about the second volume taking shape along the same lines. And that was how I began Ice Cream Man . However, while the first story within the second volume excited me to no end with its premise, it somehow f...

    HOLY SHIT! Talk about a upgrade. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed some of volume 1 of Ice Cream Man but some of the stories didn't do much for me. This one? Goddamn, every story hit me hard. So what is Ice Cream Man? It's basically a bunch of stories broken up, and sometime...

    This volume felt like a step up in story quality from the first volume. It's very well done. This Ice Cream Twilight zone is starting to get interesting. The fifth issue (first in this volume) was meh, but the rest was pretty good. ...

    While Volume 1 was clever, edgy and creepy this one just didn't do it for me. The stories were not very interesting and the ridiculous plot holes and overly convenient rescues were annoying. There's also a lot of animal death for no reason other than to be awful which I realize is one ...

    It improves quickly and it's still just so far out in front of so many other comics. It's original and taking real chances. ...

    I think that I'm a little confused on how the ice cream man is tied to all of these stories. He seems to be evil or some sort of demon. I can't tell just yet. And because it isn't clear on what he is, it makes it extremely difficult to figure out what the purpose of the comic is. I lik...

    More horror stories (with morals) to make you uncomfortable. A success! These nasty short stories appear in this second volume of this comic series. With all sorts of creatures and many undesirable people, they cover a few themes, often with a moral perspective. They?re quite ...

    This series truly is like no other I have read. I really enjoyed the creativity and individuality put into each story, and how the artwork works so well to tell a story visually, even so far as having a completely silent issue. This volume definitely upped the horror from the first one...

    Vol 1 was interesting and creepy at times, but I feel like the creators really hit their stride in this one. Highly recommend for people enjoy witty black comedy. It's really quite dark, but some of the punchlines are just fantastic, and the storytelling really drives home some interes...

    This volume feels a little more grounded than the first volume - like there?s some underlying story brewing. Of course, that isn?t to say it?s not a whacky presentation. Still short stories, vignettes about people becoming something they might otherwise not be - or maybe they?v...

    Although I still feel like this is a pretty effective horror series, this volume definitely leans pretty heavy on the art, which keeps knocking it out of the park. The plot, though, starts to introduce serialized elements and mythology, which isn't going all that smoothly as that part ...

    For a guy who loves weird shit, this latest volume seems to be pushing all the correct little nodes and buttons for me. Issue 5 through 8 were just nuts, each with their own ballads of violence, twisted body horror shit and also, poignancy. You'll know which one I'm talking about. ...

    In the middle of this collection is a triptych where we see three possible outcomes of someone's life after they buy ice cream from the creepy sort-of villain of this series. It's well-paced, well-story-boarded, and interesting. It's the entire reason I ordered the first two volumes of...

    I?ll just say it: this is my favorite comic. I know there are many, most of which I haven?t read, but this is it. ...

    Worth it for the title story "Strange Neapolitan" alone. I loved the shit out of that story and thought it was one of the coolest things I've seen in comics. I mean that in terms of formal innovation. The story is told in three different strands of possibility, each storyline a differe...

    "The mosquitoes are collecting your blood so that can eventually they can replace you." This is one of the best comics to come out of last year! Its like Junji Ito, but for the western world. I love that there appears to be a thread through the comics regarding the cowboy, Caleb, an...

    This was such an amazing experience! I normally don?t like short stories but this was truly a wild ride. I would recommend to anyone into creepy or horror graphic novels. ...
