Winterworld #2 Review 

 

By Christine Caprilozzi

 

Writer: Chuck Dixon

Artist: Butch Guice

Publisher: IDW

Release Date: July 23, 2014

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

Synopsis: The saga of Scully and Wynn continues as they search for a fabled village by the sea where rumors tell of a warm heaven in this cold hell. Wynn is still in search of her parents and the village of La Nina may be the place they were heading when she was abandoned as a child. Scully just wants to find enough fuel to keep their new vehicle on the move. But will they find death at the end of the icy road? 

Our Thoughts:  Chuck Dixon continues the journey of Scully and Wynn without missing a beat.  The issue is action packed and riddled with everything from a dark creepy landscape to cannibals.  One aspect of the series I really enjoy is that Dixon makes you actually care about the characters, which makes the reader more invested in the horrific twists and turns.  I don’t want to give anything away, but will Scully and Wynn make it to the promise land? Or will the pair hit another dead end?

Dixon does a great job of keeping the reader guessing. Butch Guice and his gritty style complement this grisly tale of a post apocalyptic frozen tale perfectly.  Some of the more grotesque scenes are extremely well done. 

With Dixon’s story and Guice’s artwork, Winterworld #2 is one horror fans can really sink their teeth into, and will most likely have issue #3 on their next pull list.
