Peter Milligan begins his run, and this was probably the best issue of Stormwatch so far. The team faces two threats, the first was The Vitruvian Man, a character based on the famous Da Vinci diagram who was a member of a Renaissance-era Stormwatch who drops a metric shit-ton of hints about the evil nature of the Shadow Lords who run the team. The second threat was a random Red Lantern who crash-landed on Earth and got into a ruck with Apollo and Midnighter. It was cool to see the normal DCU come into conflict with the in-the-margins nature of Stormwatch, and also to see how the romance between Apollo and Midnighter has progressed. I hope some of the hysterical people who assumed the DC reboot had ‘degayed’ them or whatever have realised how silly they were. Although it was weird that this issue featured both character’s real names, is this the first time we’ve seen them? It seems wrong that such OTT characters would have boring names like Andrew. I also liked that the fights in this issue were heavily grounded in character, particularly in Midnighter’s fears about whether he’s starting to enjoy killing too much. This more reflective version of the character is a bit of a departure from the previous version, who was basically a psycho, but I suppose this is a young Midnighter, we’re seeing the transition into nutcase killer here.

I've flipped through this title at the LCS a few times. Always seemed like a fun title.
I didn't get to read this one yet so not sure if it was mentioned, but the Red Lantern was sent by Bleez in RL #8 to investigate the newest Red Lantern who is from Earth.
And there is a Stormwatch cross-over coming up in Red Lanterns #10.
