Well this was something we thought was near impossible here at Wildstorm Addiction! When we first heard they were making an animated adaption of this story, we thought the chances of Grifter making it in were slim to none. Well, thankfully the director is a Grifter fan and he pushed for Grifter to make an appearance.
This new incarnation of Stormwatch continues this month but the story is still a bit simplistic. The inclusion of Lobo was already an odd choice and his part in the story takes a predictable turn here. The only saving grace about the issue is the choice Jenny Soul makes at the end which rings of Warren Ellis from original Authority run. Other than that, I’m still worried about this title.
Last month’s The Movement #2 saw the debut of one of our favorite Gen 13 kids, Rainmaker. It was just a cameo but this month’s #3 sees her in full action.
Stormwatch has been through a lot of changes lately, but it doesn’t seem that the changes are helping the title as intended. What began as a potential for an interesting new start for the team, is quickly devolving into traditional superhero fare. I fear the title may not survive past Villains Month in Sept.
