    I'm so happy this new run is off to a great start. I cannot emphasize enough if you were frustrated where Stormwatch was going before, jump on this issue and give it a try. I feel this is Stormwatch's Hail Mary play. If this book is going to survive it's needs support. Thankfully, in this case I can say that the support is well deserved. Read Full Review

    Of course, there's the distinct possibility that in a month or two, this reboot could just as easily get rolled back to the old status quo. If so, it's still a fun way to kick off this first storyline. It might not be amazing, but it's been a fun opening chapter. I'll be back next month. Read Full Review

    Stormwatch #19 is not as good as Cornell's brief run on the book, but if it gets better from here, it could be. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Apr 3, 2013

    The story does not impress and it's hard to say much different for the art. The composition of the pages is sound, but the details are of disparaging quality. Most noticeably, the eyeballs on some characters look unevenly placed on their face. It's creepy in a bad way. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks Apr 6, 2013

    It's not pretty, but DC does what it has to do to fix Stormwatch. But it's probably too little, too late and too Starlin. Many Stormwatch and Authority fans have already abandoned ship on this series, and even with these alterations, Jim Starlin is not a name that is likely to draw these fans back. Because while this is far closer to the kind of cast I originally wanted to see in this series, the writing and art still come up short of doing it justice. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Apr 5, 2013

    I won't be reading Stormwatch any more. It's not for lack of interest. It's because at this point, continuing to read this series would be like getting abused and not getting out. Because in the end, it's disrespectful to readers who have spent their time and money investing in this series only to have it ripped out from under them. For shame, DC. For shame. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Apr 5, 2013

    It was actually fun for a few pages to see a storied creator like Jim Starlin come in and perform his own little "Flashpoint" on a struggling book, but what he goes on to replace it with is no more assured or momentous than what had come before. In fact, based on issue #19 alone, there is nothing to distinguish this team from the one that came before aside from a few character swaps. The mission statement purports to be the same. Perhaps the fresh characters will be enough to inject life into this series down the road, but right now the table setting feels awfully dry. Without art dynamic enough to hook the reader in and plot that unfolds in the driest way possible, "Stormwatch" hasn't yet found its niche in the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Apr 22, 2013

    The story is stale and boring. This issue introduces readers to a Stormwatch team and new unnamed villains who can control time. The team are just alternate version of the original team from the New 52. There are a couple new characters like Hellstrike, The Weird, The Forecaster, and Force but they don't add much in this issue. The team is assembled and then they probably confront these villains in the next issue. Read Full Review
