    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 18, 2018

    As I said with the first issue, it's been a while since I read something from Image that I was truly excited for. Granted, this has turned into an "escort the witness" style of story, but the handling of it has been captivating from beginning to end. In just two short issues it's created a world that ripe for the imagination and entertaining to take part in, best not to miss it. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Roy Buckingham Jul 18, 2018

    As in the first issue, the action scenes feel like they come alive through artwork that honestly I would not mind having framed on my walls. And just like the first issue, the story here ends on a massive cliffhanger that, like the old 1930's movie serials like Flash Gordon, leaves you hanging in such suspense that you must return for the next installment to see what happens next. To me, that is a sign of masterful storytelling and I recommend this book without hesitation. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Benjamin Boruff Feb 20, 2019

    I love The Weathermans cover art. Colors pop like Skittlesas if someone poured out a bag of Skittles and melded them to the page. Most times, you shouldnt judge a book by its cover. But here, go ahead. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of commentary in the issue that is applicable to our own society that is worth really thinking about. The whole issue is uncomfortably thought provoking and that is a very good thing. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 17, 2018

    Coming from a series that I picked up on a whim knowing nothing about The Weatherman is quickly becoming a seriesI look forward to reading every month. From the mystery, comedy, sci-fi action storywith wonderful character work, to the superb artwork from Nathan Fox and Dave Stewart, The Weatherman is a joy to read. With some shocking revelations in The Weatherman #2, Nathan Bright's life is never going to be the same again. And what they say is true: you can never trust the weatherman! Read Full Review

    As you all know, I love it when an artist can really give their character's the ability to emote, and Fox absolutely excels at this. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jul 16, 2018

    The Weatherman continues to establish itself as yet another must-read science fiction comic in a banner year for that genre. The art, pacing, and concept are confident and complex, and I wouldn't be surprised if the best of this book is still yet to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex McDonald Jul 17, 2018

    A fantastic followup promising a great series. Jody LeHeup and Nathan Fox have an engaging original story here for sci fi fans, but beyond that most comic book fans will enjoy this series. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jul 20, 2018

    Perhaps it's the dreaded Sophomore Slump, but I just didn't love this issue of The Weather Man as much as I did the first one. However, that's not to say that it's not still a great book, because it is. Issue #2 is much more story-driven and spends most of its time in exposition, all the while maintaining a roller-coaster ride in terms of tone. It's a much darker, far less humorous issue, but it still does a fantastic job of world building and characterization. The Weather Man remains one of my favorite comics of the year and I am (im)patiently awaiting issue #3! Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Jul 18, 2018

    The Weather Man continues to be in my top three titles of 2018 and based on the strength of the first two issues I think it may end up vying for the top spot before alls said and done. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Jul 17, 2018

    Despite the lackluster art, the book is still worth checking out, mostly thanks to LeHeup's writing. There are some good ideas behind the project and I'm genuinely curious to see how things will unfold. Read Full Review
