This issue was a bit of a disappointment really, after a lot of big build-up, the climax to Grifter’s initial fight with the Daemonites and the Black Curate was rushed and rather confusing. I had really enjoyed the first 4 or so issues of this book, but I think I may now drop this after Edmondson leaves, the concept of the title isn’t really appealing to me any more. I think that they rushed the title into full-on cosmic war a bit too soon, and he became uber-capable way too quickly. I think I would have preferred a slower pace, with Cole facing more low-key threats in more realistic settings before coming face to face with the Black Curate. This book seemed to be about a normal criminal coming into contact with an unknown world, but that unknown became known way too soon. It looks like the ending of this one has something to do with Superman #1 and Stormwatch, so we’ll see how that goes, but really… the ball was dropped with this one.

I agree this book finally was starting to be interesting but then it all went to hell in one issue.

While its annoying how Daemonites seem to have become Cthulhu like energy thingys, this whole Black Curate was stupid and the Stormwatch base brain being a Daemonite is also stupid.

Mixing Grifter with nothing but cosmic crap was a bad move considering where his best stories were (Sleeper, Point Blank, Wildcats v2 & 3.0 etc.)
