Stormwatch #20

After a strong initial showing for the new creative team last month, the title begins to waiver a little too early for my tastes. Although the inclusion of Lobo is interesting, it seems a little odd that Stormwatch has essentially become Star Trek with superheroes.

It seems all the Wildstorm titles met their end in space. Voodoo headed out into space and got cancelled and so did Grifter (sort of). Only Team 7 didn’t resort to space as a new setting for the story but apparently that’s a moot point since that title was cancelled anyway. I’m hoping the Stormwatch title won’t end it’s time in space as well.

Welcome to another episode of Wildstorm Addiction! Our resident Wildstorm experts Joe David Soliz & Benjamin Murphy review the new DCU versions of Stormwatch #19, Ravagers #11 and Team 7 #7, as well as some other Wildstorm appearances in the new DCU 52!

Stormwatch #19

Welcome to the new Stormwatch! This is not issue #19, it reads more like a first issue. But that’s exactly what they’re doing with this title so it was very appropriate. This is definitely very new reader friendly. Starlin does what he does best as he infuses the title with his classic sci-fi feel. And Guichet’s art fits perfectly with what has proven to be a nice new beginning for the team. Continue reading
