I guess, but making it a companion book that you have to get to follow whats going on in other books annoys me...unless I happen to already be getting those titles. And for a reboot that's supposed to be really friendly to new readers cross-promotion and guest spots is fine, but if it gets overly bogged down with what's going on in other books then I don' understand why DC would go down this route.
Isn't this the sort of thing they wanted to get away from? And now they're doing it from scratch again?
No, the impression I get is that it's like... Stormwatch is the shadowy background unit that no one's ever heard of. Superman beats the shit out of the giant troll attacking Metropolis, trying to open a mystical gate to Niflheim. Ok, fantastic. Troll's ass is kicked. Stormwatch, after that, will swoop in and find a way to go to Niflheim and tell them "Stay the fuck away from Earth, tossers."
Really, they called it Stormwatch, but it REALLY felt more like The Authority. With a bit of Da Vinci Code secret society down through the centuries bullshit added in for fun.
