Winterworld: Frozen Fleet #3 (of 3)

   You know those action movies where all hell breaks loose and the heroes have to fight for their lives just to survive?

   That's a good description for every issue of Winterworld.

   Bucking the whole global warming concept, it takes us to an Earth where virtually everything is frozen - even the ocean is covered in ice.

   It follows the adventures of Scully, a tough-as-nails survivor who looks after 14-year-old Wynn, who's searching for her parents. They travel in an all-terrain truck, and trouble follows close behind.

   They seem to have found sanctuary when they discover a luxury liner trapped in the ice along with some other ships - but their luxury is short-lived, as the ship is attacked by a small army of savages.

   It's an action-packed, hard-hitting adventure from page one, with lots of surprises and twists thrown in for good measure.

   Writer Chuck Dixon is one of the best in the business, and this is his kind of gig - no punches pulled! These adventures have been packed in convenient three-issue mini-series, so it's easy to jump on anywhere along the line.

   Highly recommended!
