When confronted with his girlfriend’s request that they have a child together, Samuel fled that relationship. But a year later, when he receives a letter from Alice announcing that she is expecting a baby, old emotions flare up and he embarks on a long journey to see her again ― to re-open, or perhaps close forever, that important chapter of his life. The Crackle of the Frost graphic novel is the story of what he sees, hears, experiences, and learns during that journey.
