Weavers #1

Screen Shot 2016 05 03 at 8

Weavers is a dark and complex story about Sid Thyme and the situation he has gotten himself into by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The story begins while Sid is being introduced to the area, learning what he is in charge of controlling as a new member of the organization he is having such issues understanding. When a deal goes awry, he is asked to stop the man but he hesitates, unsure of his powers.

Sid meets the boss, who has powers of his own, causing his blood to boil. He gives him another shot, sending him out on another mission with his daughter to get intel on the explosion that not only killed the bosses sister, but granted Sid his powers.

The Good: 

  • The story picks up quickly without feeling rushed. You are never bored and aren’t left wondering anything too long. They balance the line of exposition with story telling, allowing the plot to feel natural while still giving a strong background and explanation for everything that is going on.
  • The characters feel well rounded and interesting. Not everyone has the same power which is gives a nice variety. The powers also are unique to this story – in particular the bosses daughter has a power I don’t think I have ever seen before.
  • They use a series of flashbacks to explain how Sid got his powers in a way that doesn’t feel forced and they give it a good connection to the other characters.

The Bad

  • I am really not sure that I have anything negative to say about this book. It caught me off guard, with the cover having such a dark and spooky cover I was expecting a creepier book, but while the tone was dark they managed to keep it funny with the powers, conversations and expressions. The only thing that was left unexplained is one panel of a woman in a window but it is done in a way  that is clearly leading to something. No panel seems wasted in this comic.

The Art

  • The characters are all given looks that are unique, but fit together in the world we are presented. It is easy to tell who is part of the Weaver team and who isn’t.
  • The way they draw the powers of each character are very well done, especially with Sid’s squid-monster arm.

I have nothing bad to say about this book, it caught me off guard with how well thought out it was. They do a good job at explaining the past without letting it feel bogged down in backstory. Highly recommend this book!
