Review: ★★★★☆

You have to ask yourself Do you sorry for our Weatherman? Nathan Bright is Ian Black. He was part of the Sword of God. They murdered 18 Billion people on planet Earth. His life is up for bid by Pearl. He is hooked up to a machine that will allow people to torture and kill him and he will feel without taking physical damage. We find people can come up with tons of cash when revenge is on the line. This issue focuses primarily on Amy trying to save Nathan but having to go through two assassins to do it. Can we buy into Amy saving Bright? This is still a fantastic scifi story which looks great. Nathan Fox creates nice atmosphere for the book. He knows how to properly pull off the details and make everything look futuristic. I’m looking for the bigger story in all of this which we get little things here and there. Granted the Earth’s population being murdered is pretty hardcore. The issue does show us what the machine can put Nathan through. I still ask…Do you feel sorry for the Weather Man? The end of the book is actually an insane cliffhanger as well.
