The Weatherman is a new Image series written by Jody LeHeup (Shirtless Bear-Fighter!) and drawn by Nathan Fox (DMZ, Haunt) with colors by Dave Stewart (Hellboy). It concerns the people of an Earth-like terraformed Mars whose society is in upheaval after the people of Earth have been killed in the worst terrorist attack in human history. And Nathan Bright, a carefree local weatherman, whose life of playing with his dog and eating noodles is upended when he’s accused of masterminding the attack.
I’ve had a peek at issues #1 – which goes on FOC on Monday – and it’s an intriguing sci-fi thriller with the HUGE bonus of Fox’s art, which never takes no for an answer. It’s restless, unsettling and full of imaginative character details. I’ve been a Fox fan for a while, and he’s in good form with The Weatherman – and of course Stewart’s always flawless colors help immensely.
Here’s a preview of two covers for Issue 3 that we can EXCLUSIVELY REVEAL! one by Fox:

And here’s a few pages of Issue #1. which goes on sales on June 13.
