Peter Milligan Heads to STORMWATCH

It was announced earlier today that Jeff Lemire will be writing JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK. So where is Peter Milligan going you ask? Well, Milligan will be staying on RED LANTERNS and Vertigo's HELLBLAZER and will be writing STORMWATCH beginning with issue #9


Pamela Mullin Had this to say on DC's Blog:


We asked Milligan about taking on the covert sci-fi superhero team STORMWATCH and here's what he had to say:

"Stormwatch has the craziness, the paranoia and the occasional bursts of odd humor that really grab me. This is my kind of book. In other words, when I re-read Paul Cornell's excellent first series with a view to taking over the writing duties I was really excited. And I'm excited too by what I have planned, from Stormwatch facing a ferocious character from the Red Lantern Corps, to hidden secrets being revealed about the origin of Stormwatch, and some shocking revelations about the mysterious Shadow Lords. It's going to be a very intense ride.

It's a bit of a wrench leaving JL Dark, of course, and not working with the increasingly outstanding Mikel Janin. But the fact that Jeff Lemire is taking over makes me very sanguine. I think Jeff is great. And I think he'll be great for this book. It'll be intriguing to see how he handles the great conman mage, John Constantine, whose twisted life I'm continuing to chronicle over in Vertigo's Hellblazer."

You can pick up Milligan's first issue of STORMWATCH in May.
