The second issue of BOOM! Studios’ The Seasons Have Teeth is a gripper. It bites, it snarls, it stalks the scenery, and chews the actors too!
The key concept to this miniseries is that ‘seasons’, ie: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter are actual nasty creatures. And they wreak deadly havoc.
This issue is a continuation of the experiences of Andrew, an investigative photographer. He’s playing with the big boys now, entering a very dangerous zone alongside some battle weary journalists.
Dan Watters writes this issue like there is no tomorrow, as the serious and hard-hitting aspect shines through. It’s terse and tense.
Artist Sebastián Cabrol’s line work resembles Bronze Age comic art, like that of Irv Novick or Russ Andru, with shades of Bob Brown. And it’s solid and with enough realism to sell the ‘sizzle’. Colourist Dan Jackson keeps the palette in good old grey tones for a large part of the story, but flashing toward hot oranges when things get to the front burner. Lettering by Nate Piekos. Editor Shantel LaRocque.
An original concept, well-executed, and suspenseful.
