Summary
Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most - but what has he left behind besides a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships? And now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream - and he's more put together than Bobby ever was. He grapples with his gay identity and his family and how to build a life and legacy he can be proud of... and become the best Iceman he can be! But, whether it's seeking his ex-girlfriend Kitty Pryde's advice on meeting guys, or delivering his latest news to his folks, it won't be easy - and that's before a gang of revenge-seeking Purifiers comes calling! And, still learning to be comfortable in his own skin, Bobby will meet someone who's perhaps too comfortable in his - the son of Wolverine himself, Daken! Collecting: Iceman 1-5
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "With expressive artwork, fluid narration, and quirky dialogue, this welcome volume puts X-Men's Iceman in the spotlight. Bobby, the everyday face of the ice-throwing hero, realizes that even in a contemporary world where both mutants and LGBTQ identities are widely accepted, coming to terms with being gay is a challenge. He's dedicated his life to fighting supervillains and helping other mutants accept themselves; ever supportive, he preaches to a young woman he rescues, "You never know how far your powers will take you, if you believe in yourself." His temper is tested as Iceman when he's confronted with a group of violent religious zealots, a new mutant with unique powers (and ego to match), and fan-favorite villains Daken and the Juggernaut. Despite all this, Bobby has a bigger and more worrisome problem: coming out to his critical parents. The writing speaks to challenges faced by many readers, and lifelike artwork slyly conveys Iceman's emotional turmoil, even in seemingly calm moments between battles. Unfortunately, this is expected to be the first of only two volumes, as the series was canceled, but the buzz around the writer and the rarity of a standalone volume featuring a gay superhero make this well worth picking up, despite the looming cutoff.
