Stormwatch #10 (I gave you a manicure Spoilers)

Peter Milligan’s run continues to really make this concept work to it’s potential, as the team face another crazy-weird threat, but this time, the villain coincided thematically with the problems of one of the characters. The team have to fight a monster that was created by a device that came about due to Stormwatch’s secrecy, and Apollo is really struggling with that. He finally found the courage to come out of the closet, but now he’s hiding himself again. Interesting stuff. I also liked that Milligan is bringing back stuff from Cornell’s run, I wouldn’t have minded the likes of Harry Tanner or Illusionist being forgotten for a while, but it’s good that he’s using them, and hey, he even brought back The Fox! Hilarious. Unfortunately Ignacio Calero’s art was pretty poor, this title has suffered art-wise, I’d like to see it get somebody actually good for once, that would improve things no end.

I am really digging this book. I wanted to check it out earlier in the run but just wasn't too interested at the same time, especially given it wasn't getting great feedback. But upon hearing Milligan was joining, the possibility of him writing Midnighter and Apollo made me jump onto the book. It's definitely great stuff. The scenes with Apollo this issue was definitely well written and understandable.

Definitely hope to see more development with the other characters as the book goes. Last issue was Midnighter focused, this was Apollo. I wonder who's the next piece.

And I sorta like the one-issue story arc with the character developments as the subplots through the book.
