    Wildstorm Addiction - Joe David Soliz Sep 5, 2012

    The first outing for Zero Month for me was a hit! The issue delivered as promised. It showed us the hidden history of Stormwatch, it showed their connection to Demon Knights, and threw in more Wildstorm concepts just for good measure. I hope there is a round of fans who are picking up all the zero issues as a good jumping on point. If nothing else, I hope the story will intrigue them enough to want to back track and find out more.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Boren Sep 7, 2012

    All in all, “Stormwatch” #0 is a solid read — not the best, but good. It delivers on revealing to readers the origins of the Stormwatch team, an origin that turns out to be fairly intruiging. Hopefully the writers will capitalize on all the connections that have come to light, and make “Stormwatch” a cornerstone of the New 52. There is a lot of potential with this book. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 8, 2012

    The point of a special jumping-on point like a zero issue is to convince new readers of what the series is about, but the best one-shots also give a little new information to reward those who have been reading all along. On that level, this issue is a success, and from a character standpoint, it's a good read. But it ends up being quite talky throughout, and no matter how good some of Merlin/Adam-One's dialogue is, there's just a little bit too much discussion and not enough actually happening for my taste. Still and all, Stormwatch #0 has reawakened my appreciation for this book, convincing me to drag out the first twelve issues and give them a re-read as Stormwatch launches into year two, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. It's not perfect, but it's a pretty successful place to come into (or BACK into) the adventures of Stormwatch... Read Full Review

    Will Conrad's art looks solid throughout, shining most during the aforementioned dolphin scene -- there's just something horrifying and hilarious about that whole concept, and he nails it. His interpretations of the century babies of different ages and ethnicities look fantastic and envelope the feel of each century. The look of Jenny Quantum stands out this issue if only because for the first time in the New 52, she looks appropriately Asian. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 10, 2012

    As history lessons go, this issue is snappier and more adventurous than most, but when it all comes down to it, it's still history, which has never been my favorite subject. In addition to the history lesson, Milligan peeks into the future -- or as much of the future as any comic ever does -- and plants uncertainty in young Jenny Quantum's mind. My understanding of "Stormwatch" only encompasses this post-relaunch title. Given what Milligan and Conrad provide here, that's more than enough depth of knowledge to appreciate the series to this point, jump in here and move forward along with the team. After all, there are dark things ahead for the DC Universe and this team has been"watching. Read Full Review
