Review: ★★★★☆

Mars 2770 and the weather is still a thing on the Martian world. Nathan Bright is the local weather man with a tons and tons of flare. He wants to prove a man can breastfeed. The book has a lot more then that simple description. It is on Mars and in the future. First off, The Weather Man has done what so many comics tend to fail at from time to time. It has atmosphere. I mean the art looks like it can exist in a real Mars setting or illustrated setting. Every single panel in this story has many many moving parts. There are futuristic elements happening all around our weather man, Nathan. Nathan has a great relationship with his dog Sadie. It creates a warm fuzzy feeling about the character. This isn’t a warm fuzzy story. The story shows some crushing action scenes that puts question into our new weather man’s past. The book foreshadows what might have happened, which I imagine we’ll find out in the next issue. This book is an excellent read and I can’t wait to feast on the next issue. They do, do something that is pretty much unforgivable in most media…I am never a fan…not even in this solid and quality book.
