    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Jun 17, 2018

    Leheup and Fox have created a first issue that left me speechless. Once you read it, I think you will be, too. I am so impressed with this issue, and with so many huge questions left up in the air, it speaks to the creative team to create something so enticing, so intriguing, that it shows a mastery of the comic book artform. I am completely on board for this series, it looks, reads and feels like a sci-fi epic, lets see what the second issue follows up with. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jun 26, 2018

    I probably don't need to say this, but I really, REALLY liked this first issue of The Weatherman. I imagined I would when I saw who wrote it, but it exceeded my expectations. It's exciting, hilarious, heart-breaking, and action packed. I know for a fact that it's not for everybody (and really, what is?) but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone who enjoys running the gamut of emotions while reading your comics. You'll be laughing one minute and gasping the next, but you'll be enjoying yourself the entire time. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Jun 13, 2018

    Image have always been a big part of my comic collection. I think theyve put out some incredible series over the years and I feel like The Weather Man really has the potential to be another. The familiarity I felt with the nods to 2000AD and LeHeups excellent narrative really drew me into the world Nathan inhabits and made me feel like I was in safe hands on the journey. This is one I will definitely be following closely in the months to come. Read Full Review

    Techaeris - Jason Falter Jun 18, 2018

    The first thing that pulls you in is the art. It's Americana comic book art at its roots but it does run right up and flirt with a very cool manga style. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 13, 2018

    Future societies, dystopian planets are these days, almost as over done as zombies and vampires. That said, Jody LeHeung has a knack for taking ideas and insinuations from other sources and creating something bigger than the whole. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Michael Jones Jun 14, 2018

    I highly recommend this book, especially if you loved Shirtless Bear-Fighter. Leheup shows he has the chops for something that isn't nearly as goofy and absurd but still can throw in those comedic moments. Read Full Review

    And the art of course is wonderful. Fox is a veteran and his art is perfect for this. I just wish I had the rest of it right away (five issues are already reportedly done). If the rest of the series is this good, however, I won't mind waiting. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 12, 2018

    The Weatherman #1 was a delight to read and caught me off guard by how good it was. Coming into this series completely blind was fantastic and the story caught me by surprise toward the end of the issue. It also has me very excited as the series continues. The story is imaginative an fun, with interesting characters and a world that is wide open for exploration. With Nathan Fox and Dave Stewart on art, The Weatherman #1 is stunning to look at. It had me hooked from the first page on. If you are looking for a good new comic to pick up, look no further than The Weatherman #1. It even has its own soundtrack! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Benjamin Boruff Feb 5, 2019

    I read the synopsis of the first issue prior to reading the comic, and I was still shocked by the narrative twists. Assuming that future issues are similar, The Weatherman is going to be one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 13, 2018

    Familiar? Yes. But, it's really entertaining and a comic I really want to see where it all goes. This was one that sucked me in quickly and by the end I had a smile at the energy about it all. A solid debut that's a definite buy. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan F. Hodgdon May 15, 2018

    The careful balance of tone, style and character is essential to the telling of any good story. But in the case of The Weatherman, the tone is going to be the real make-or-break factor to this series. Can they maintain the tension between bleak and adventurous? Can they nail the emotion through a heightened, absurdist aesthetic? If the work in this first issue is any indication, the answer is most likely yes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Jun 16, 2018

    There is quite a bit to enjoy in this first issue. Yes, I had a bit of a push to get over the fact that technology hadn't moved on that much in over 700 years. Leaving that aside though, and adding a little extra suspended disbelief this is a great first issue, the art is great and it is highly enjoyable. The ending draws you in and will have you wanting to pick up the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weatherman #1 is mostly a great comic. That one scene aside, I quite enjoyed the book and its characters. The premise is strange in a lot of ways, but I like it. Despite its flaws, this one earns a recommendation. Check it out tomorrow. Read Full Review
