*For those that want to experience the beginning of the Night Rain Volume 1 graphic novel at a lower price point.
On a particularly dark and rainy night, James is working another late shift at his boring retail job when the time finally comes for him to close up for the night. Heading out into the pouring rain, James tries to make his way home when he is suddenly attacked by a mysterious figure clad in a black hood. After losing consciousness from the attack James wakes up the next morning in his room to find a black scar where his open wound should be and a strange voice speaking to him in his mind. With this strange turn of events James quickly comes to realize that his life is about to get a lot more complicated.

The first issue does an excellent job of laying out the groundwork. I found the course of the plot unexpected and we definitely have a character here we can sympathize with. The creature that inhabits James is as relatable as James himself!
I was really surprised by, Night Rain. As I was reading, I was completely caught off guard by how the story was progressing and how certain characters and elements were introduced. A testament to great story telling. Highly recommended!

I really liked this first issue. The dark atmosphere mixed with some light humor really worked well (Ted is a blast!) I kind of get a vibe like Marvel’s “Venom” from this story, which is a big plus for me.

Night Rain #1 definitely left me wanting to know more about James, Ted, and what would happen next! Combined with the unique art style, it’s a really enjoyable read.
This comic is witty and fun. Artwork is great too, looks like it was digitally painted and it’s pretty realistic. Need to check out the other issues soon.

Jesse Wolfe comes through again: I liked •elemental conductors,• a good “out of nowhere” hero story with magical yet plausible powers and villains. But •Night Rain• raises the bar. I love the “clerks” set-piece of a “quickee mart” bullshit existence that is transformed by slime from a gutter into a magical realist adventure.
This comic is a bit more on the darker side and I like that. I find the blob named Ted to be fun and it injects great personality into the plot. It does end off on a bit of a cliffhanger so I need to read the other issues to see what happens next.

Night Rain #1 offers a new graphic novel with an exciting new story line from Jesse Wolfe. The mystery sci-fi genre explores a new opportunity building upon the style of Elemental Conductors, Jesse’s first graphic novel. This new series offers a new complexity with an interesting opportunity for ongoing twists with James as the story line continues.
Night Rain is an awesome graphic novel. It’s a fresh story with a tinge of dark humor that I enjoy very much that pulls you into the novel from the first panel. I also enjoy the dynamic between the two main characters so that we get to see James treat Ted more like a partner than a parasite. I cant wait to see what they get into in the next issues!
