Image comics highly promoted The weatherman is finally here. Writer Jody Leheup and Artist Nathan Fox deliver on the hype.
The Weatherman is a fantastically written first issue. Opening on the series secondary character is an in-genius idea. The overall characterization is brilliant. Leheup develops each character with care and detail to the point you see these as people not characters. Their personalities have a nice variety to them that also compliment the tone.
The Weatherman works tonally as the pacing, dialogue and setting complement each other. The pacing is well done, building character and story development in a well-formed manner. Jody does an outstanding job world building in The Weatherman #1. They showcase the world in an organic way highlighting the similarities and differences to reality. Leheup also hints at the rich history and technological differences.
Jody Leheup overall, hooks you into the weather man’s world with their fantastic writing. Nathan’s art does an equally amazing job.
Nathan Fox is the perfect artist for the weather man. His character designs are dynamic, bold and unique. Their designs encapsulate the personalities beautifully on every page. Nathan knows how to present a character; their loose expressive lines brings weight to Jody’s writing. The Weatherman is a story with energy and Fox’s art brings that energy.
The energy in the art is unbelievable that the action sequences are a visual highlight. This is also thanks to the amazing colors by Dave Stewart.
The colors are vibrant and give the art an added oomph. Dave Stewart is the MVP of The Weatherman as he makes this book special with his colors.
The Weatherman #1 is a fantastic read that lives up to the massive hype. The characters are fantastic with dynamic art and colors. The Weatherman is a definite must read.
