As if there weren’t enough complications, more arise in issue #6 of Coda. Plus, there may be a potential solution to Hum’s ultimate goal. Hum is a do-gooding bard turned into a self-centered bandit. When the civilization of magic that had thrived then fell, he lost his wife Serka to bouts of rage, in which she’d disappear into the desert for weeks or months at a time seeking revenge. Now, the only bit of magic left in the world comes from a substance called Akker. Hum needs as much Akker as he can get to undo the curse that is coursing through Serka. The head of an Ylf that he now carries with him (Ylfs are magic beings that are full of Akker and regenerate.) accuses Hum of wanting to change her. He insists he wants to help her, and, with that, the strong and potentially tragic allegory at play here becomes very topical.
Cold Spots follows the story of an absentee father who is hired by his wealthy stepfather to find their wife/daughter, Alyssa, respectively, but, more importantly, the daughter that she has taken with her, Grace. Cullen Bunn enjoys crossing his genres, and this horror story is no exception, falling somewhere between gothic and noir. The father, Dan, sets off on a supernatural detective story that finds people instantaneously frozen to ice when touched by the supernatural predators.
