An improvement over #1 in a lot of ways, chiefly in that Cornell did a better job of explaining who some of these new characters are and what Stormwatch’s status quo is. I get that writers want to avoid exposition dumps, but with #1 I felt like I’d been dropped in the deep-end, it was confusing. But now we know a bit more about Adam, and about the struggle for leadership in Stormwatch. Miguel Sepulveda’s art was better too, and Al Barrioneuvo did a good job of filling in too. I was a bit confused by the scenes between Harry the Swordsman and that giant eye, is he betraying the team or not? I also liked Cornell’s take on Midnighter, he seems like a scary dude. And the way Stormwatch misdirected the superheroes by manipulating the media and blaming the Fox was hilarious! A proper Cornell touch that.
