Iceman Chronicles mixes genuine comedy with mystery

Aunt Jemima in a pink tutu on Sunday!
The Iceman Chronicles is an awesomely fun suspense-comedy web series.
The comedy elements do not distract or detract from the narrative flow or impact.

I’m not surprised that most so-called comedy web series are epic fails at comedy—like Hurtling Through Space At An Alarming Rate, The Crew, and Cabonauts.
Comedy is not easy to do well, so I’m surprised that so many web series try. I was also happily surprised to discredit my skepticism and discover that The Iceman Chronicles is a dark thriller comedy that understands how to do comedy right: it must be organic, deriving naturally and logically from the story, not gratuitous or contrived.
Even better, not only is the comedy actually funny, it is clever & intelligent!
And even more better, The Iceman Chronicles is a well written & interesting story, well produced by 15Gigs.

In the small hometown of Blythe, Arizona, a shadowy figure eliminates his accomplice, drawing the town coroner/veterinarian, Russell Coldpalm, into a baffling murder investigation. As he digs deeper into the murder, Russ and his moronic cop buddies stumble onto the horrible truth their parents tried to bury: the serial murders of The Iceman, a ruthless killer who terrorized Blythe in the 1970s and 1980s.

Also available on
