In the arctic wilderness of post-apocalyptic America, death comes in many forms—but none is worse than the terrifying plague that freezes its victims from the inside out. They call it frostbite, and it is slowly, inexorably infecting the struggling remnants of humanity. Frostbite has no vaccine, no immunity, and no cure.
In snowbound Mexico City, Dr. Henry Bonham and his daughter, Victoria, have found the key to destroying the disease. In order to make their theoretical cure a reality, however, they have to travel 2,000 treacherous miles to a secret government installation on Alcatraz Island.
Enter Keaton, captain of the cross-country cargo hauler Icebreaker, and her hard-bitten mercenary crew. They’ve spent years learning how to survive on the ice, but they’ve never before gone on a run with such high stakes—or with such determined enemies.
Will these unlikely saviors make it across the frozen wasteland, defeat the relentless forces gunning for their lives, and bring warmth to the world? Or will frostbite continue to consume all life in its icy jaws?
Discover the shocking answers in FROSTBITE. Collects FROSTBITE #1-6.
Fifty-seven years ago the world was thrown into the new Ice Age and everyone has been suffering even more ever since. Billions of people died when it started but now there might be a light at the end of this previously doomed tunnel.
We follow Keaton and what starts with as her crew as they agree to take a doctor and her father to Alcatraz. In this day and age there is no time to feel guilty. You get what you can take and along the line, morals are tested, sacrifices are made. This is just the way the world is now.
The graphics are a bit different, definitely not what I’m sued to but it fits with the theme and with the comic itself. I feel that if the images were super clear, it’d be too perfect and that would ruin the masterpiece.
This comic went a lot faster that I thought it would and I found myself flying right through it. I’ve read works by Joshua Williamson before and I admit that that is what made me pick this up. As expected, I wasn’t disappointed and I became quite engrossed in the plot.
I found the concept and idea interesting and I love that it ended off leaving a bit to the imagination but at the same time giving us closure. I’m all too glad that I decided to read this and I can’t wait to reach out more comics written by Williamson, not to mention works by this artist.
