    As usual, this was a good issue with great characters.  I've enjoyed this storyline and am happy to see Tanner exposed.  The fallout from this issue should be interesting with Apollo mistrusting Midnighter, who WAS right the whole time, Projectionist learning Tanner had played her the entire time, and Engineer seemingly joining the dark side.  With Engineer, I'm guessing she has been corrupted somewhere along the line, I recall something happening a few issues back that should explain her antics.  Apollo and Midnighter?  It'll be interesting to see how readily Midnighter forgives Apollo for not believing him and, you know, trying to kill him and all.  All in all, good stuff that has me looking forward to the next issue.

    Stormwatch is still a solid title and I'm hoping for the best, but I can't help but worry with the declining monthly sales. I can easily see how this book could morph into The Authority title just like it did in the old Wildstorm Universe, but I'm not sure if that's what DC intends to do. Regardless, I hope they keep these characters going because with the Voodoo and Grifter titles gone, it's the only original New 52 launch title pulled from Wildstorm that's left. Here's to hoping!

    Unfortunately, this issue once again sees regular artist Will Conrad joined by fill-in artists (in this case Eduardo Pansica and Julio Ferreira). It's frustrating that this has apparently become the norm. The guest artists fit in with Conrad's style well enough. The problem is more than Conrad's art often looks rushed, with too much reliance on stiff, unnatural CG models and not enough of the more organic style he relies on in other books. Must Stormwatch always suffer these sorts of visual woes? Read Full Review

    Conrad's pencils are fine; his characters look a little lean but are drawn consistently and reasonably. The panel flow is good, and I feel like he understands how to put a page together. There's nothing particularly flashy about Conrad's pencils, but they don't need to be; they get the job done in an unobtrusive way. And in some ways, that sums up "Stormwatch" #16. It's not going for an in-your-face manner, and I think that suits the title much more than the bigger, louder earlier attempts this comic has taken. All in all, a nice, good comic. Read Full Review
