Stormwatch #8 (Abominate Cow! Spoilers)

A big improvement over #7, mainly because the story didn’t focus on the weird, not-adequately-explained, villains, but on the characters. The scenes here with Midnighter and Jenny Quantum were excellent, especially when Midnighter tries to kill her. It’s interesting that the book would go so dark, and good to know that even if they can’t swear and fuck anymore, some of that old Authority edge is still in these characters, they’re not just another JLA. It’ll be interesting to see where Milligan takes the idea of Midnighter trying to kill Jenny, it could be very interesting. The art was pretty poor again though, Midnighter’s costume in particular looked very clunky. Jenkins’ two-parted managed to redeem itself in part 2, can Milligan redeem the entire book when he takes over? Because while I liked this issue, this title has still been, on the whole, a rather large disappointment.
