My Little Poltergeist

Have you ever had a best friend growing up? You know that one friend you swung the swings. Imagine losing that friend to cancer but still having that friend in a more “ghost” like capacity. The Ice Cream Man torments a small girl in this fashion, which actually is more of a torment for her parents. It’s a ghost story that has sprinkles. These sprinkles lead the grieving child to the end of a horrible road. Through out the panels though Prince drops words of wisdom for any travel goer, but I don’t recommend the cat part. The gruesome ending puts in perspective the truth about the Ice Cream Man and Caleb. Caleb is the man dressed in black who we have seen on several occasions. He has an elemental relationship with the Ice Cream Man that will wait to be seen. Lucy(the girl) asks a question at the end of the story to put it back down to earth. The book continues to be a horrific and insightful look into what could be. Let’s hope our creators continue delight and disgust us with these awful flavors of enjoyment.
