    Ice Cream Man continues to be sometimes very good, sometimes not very good, and mostly in-between. There's one really good here, one not very good, and two in-betweeners. The anthology style works in its favor for the most part and the best part of the series remains Prince's willingness to play with the format. Still, it's strictly still "Okay" here because it never manages to stay at its best for very long. Ice Cream Man continues to be sometimes very good, sometimes not very good, and mostly in-between.

The Ice Cream Man is serving up another helping of sweet treats and frosty concoctions. A hard-boiled detective named Ray Kowalski investigates the strange disappearance of a number of ice cream men in the area and the cult that seems to be hunting them. Julie finds the countdown to Christmas tinged with sadness and fear when she learns that she’s eighteen, unmarried, and pregnant. A talk-show host named Mack Benson is rushed to the hospital after an interview goes wrong and the future of Tonight, Tonight hangs in the balance. Jerry Donaldson is dying…everyone knows it but no one cares enough to donate a dollar to help him. When the Ice Cream Man offers treats, everyone gets their just desserts. Written by W. Maxwell Prince, Ice Cream Man Volume 6: Just Desserts is an Image anthology comic book collection. Following Ice Cream Man Volume 5: Other Confections, the series features art by Martin Morazzo. Ice Cream Man 6: Just Desserts has a hard path to follow. I like Ice Cream Man, but Ice Cream Man 5: Other Confections was my favorite collection of the series thus far. While Ice Cream Man Volume 6 is good follow-up, it doesn’t quite reach the level of the previous entry. What is interesting about Ice Cream Man is the recurring themes. This volume was heavy on divorce and shattered lives. The people involved stories are all broken. For some of the characters like Jerry Donaldson, he is too broken to fix. A character like Julie still has a potential future and while PI Kowalski decides to screw the past and forge ahead into the future…in classic Ice Cream Man forum, the character don’t know each other but they all fill linked by the world that Prince has been building over the last twenty issues. The other nice thing about Ice Cream Man is the unpredictability of it. It would be easy for something horrific to happen every issue or for the series to be a continuous and dark downer. Instead the stories are kind of toss-ups. They often have a wry humor (like the telethon), but sometimes they have a lot of heart like the story of the advent calendar which ends in a way that was best for the characters…it isn’t a perfect world, but sometimes hard choices (with consequences) must be made. Ice Cream Man is able to surprise the reader in this sense almost every time. Ice Cream Man continues to be a fun read. I find the natural freedom of the series to be inspired and realize that because of this freedom and the series’ popularity, that Prince and Morazzo will probably have free rein to decide how long the series will run and where it will go. If the series wraps up nice and neat, I’ll be ok with that but it ends with a ton of ambiguity like the stories in each issue, I’m also ok with that…regardless, I hope Ice Cream Man has a long, nice run.

    #21: Cult, private investigator, cigarettes, theme of ice cream man. I enjoyed this one quite a bit, and it solved the strange ice cream man thing that i was feeling — always felt forced, like the demonic presence of the ice cream man had to be crammed in for no reason. But this one felt right. Really was a character study of the PI guy. Also somewhat of a happy ending for him, which makes it creepier because he was our hero. Giving up the goal leads to happiness while the world falls apart. Or #21: Cult, private investigator, cigarettes, theme of ice cream man.

But this one felt right. Really was a character study of the PI guy. Also somewhat of a happy ending for him, which makes it creepier because he was our hero. Giving up the goal leads to happiness while the world falls apart. Or something. #22: Abortion, Christmas, ducks, roaches, Catholicism. Nothing particularly sinister about this one, but those creepy ICM faces show up in the children carolers, the abortion clinic lady, and a bunch of others. Unsure the meaning. I suppose the irony of aborting an unborn fetus during Christmastime is enough of a story. Well-thought out though. Each page is a day. Good themes. #23: Tonight Tonight With Mack Benson. Like a short story without an ending. Lots of prose, each page of writing from a different character. Interesting. A bit brutal. Good writing overall but a bit simple. Some cigarettes solving problems theme going from earlier in this arc. Feels like I just spent a lot of time reading without much reward. I suppose that’s the price for these one-off snapshots. Not enough development. #24: Telethon to save Jerry’s life. Jerry falls apart. Clever interconnected stuff. Pinky ring superhero guy on poster. Same divorce law firm. Same ice cream company (Holt - also they sell lobsters lol). Commercials and whatnot interweaved with the main story. Though I’m not entirely sure the main Jerry story has anything to do with anything. Maybe this one is about the ICM (they’ve even got “ICM” written on some of the backgrounds) — like life is seemingly chaotic but it’s really a matter of who is caring about you. Or the ICM is an inescapable force as we ride towards our deaths. Or maybe none of that, and it’s just a weird story.

    "Brian remembers being told as a child, when his younger sister fell nose-first off a set of monkey bars, that there's an inordinate amount of blood under the human face. Something about the abundance of vessels in the chin and cheeks. Suzie bled, he recalls, what seemed like gallons of red liquid." Unfortunately, this is my least favourite volume so far. I just didn't like any of the four stories. I still love the art style and the writing, so I know I will keep reading this series if there are "Brian remembers being told as a child, when his younger sister fell nose-first off a set of monkey bars, that there's an inordinate amount of blood under the human face.

    I'm so excited every time a new Ice Cream Man collection comes out! Always a nice little nightmare in each vignette to go with the ice cream. I'm so excited every time a new Ice Cream Man collection comes out! Always a nice little nightmare in each vignette to go with the ice cream.
