Now that’s more like. I felt a little lost with #1 and #2, but now that Cornell has properly established who the new characters like Adam and the Projectionist are and what their powers entail, I feel like I know what’s going on and can begin to enjoy the craziness of this book without going ‘huh?’ every two pages. My favourite scene in this issue was Jack Hawksmoor’s conversation with the physical manifestations of Paris, Metropolis and Gotham City, it was just a cool way to illustrate Hawksmoor’s powers, and the way Cornell and Sepulveda anthropomorphised each city was spot on. I also liked the brief glimpse into Apollo’s mindset, he’s an angry dude, and that makes him an unconventional character and one who’s future I can’t wait to see. The ending was also cool, next issue should give Midnighter a chance to really cut loose and demonstrate just how much of a bad-ass he is. Which is a lot.

I really didn't care for the way they showed manifestations of cities to Hawksmore, it seemed a bit lazy IMO and definitely not cool - just taking the easy way.

Still not sold on this book, but with all the action and story going on around trying to introduce everyone I expect it to take a bit longer to get all the characters fleshed out.

I thought this issue was the best yet. Hawksmoore powers didn't bother me that much but if they ruin Midnighter and Apollo I'm going to be very disgruntled. I still say this is the DC book to keep a watch on. Get it? A watch on? Sometimes I make myself laugh.

I thought Wildstorm couldn't sink any lower than Worlds End. I was wrong, this series has surpassed that shit.

I didn't really like the way Hawksmoor's powers were expressed.
