THE FREEZE DELIVERS A NEW SPIN ON THE POST-APOCALYPTIC TALE
Remember the 1980s TV show Out of This World? It followed a young girl who could stop time by putting her two pointer fingers together and all the hilarious hijinks that would happen as a result. The Freeze isn't like that really. Instead, the new series from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions takes place in a world where everyone is suddenly frozen in place...except for one guy. It's written by Dan Wickline and illustrated by Phillip Sevy. Check out the full write-up from the publisher below:
The entire human population is frozen by a mysterious global event…all except Ray, and only he has the power to unfreeze them. Now—with the fate of the world in his hands—he must figure out what is going on, how to set things right again, and answer the question: does everyone deserve to be saved?
“The Freeze is a post-apocalyptic survival story where the biggest danger is man’s true nature,” said Wickline. “We strip the world down to one decent person and then give him the power to rebuild society from scratch, not knowing if those he awakens will benefit the new world or indulge their darkest inclinations. It’s an intriguing concept to explore as a writer, and Phillip is just hitting it out of the park with his art.”
“Great sci-fi is about taking a cool concept and using it as a vehicle to examine the choices, attitudes, thoughts, and prejudices we, as people, have,” added Sevy. “The premise and its execution in The Freeze is what drew me to the project and keeps me fueled as I work on it. I can’t wait for people to read it—Dan’s written a great book!”
I got a sneak peek at The Freeze #1 from a special preview issue and I can assure you this is some creepy stuff. This premise could go a few different ways, but Wickline and Sevy are going for a very unsettling feeling.
Look for The Freeze #1 at your local comic shop on Wednesday, December 5th.
