    Honestly, the issue is strong, but not exceptional, but I feel Cornell deserves the higher grade on his last outing for a series that has been rock-solid from beginning to end. I'm actually a bit grief-stricken to think he won't be guiding the stories to come. Read Full Review

    I REALLY enjoyed this issue! There really wasn't a slow part to be found here, and the story is really starting to come together. All of the little reveals(like the ship being a Daemonite), and the character development scenes blended together perfectly. Really, everything here was great, which makes me all the sadder that Paul Cornell is leaving this series, because he really seems to know what he's doing. This issue gave us the full Stormwatch team, gave Midnighter and Apollo a reason for sticking around(considering they were both loners at the start of this series), and gave Stormwatch a longterm enemy, as well as missions to run. All in all, Cornell did a masterful job of putting the team together and putting events into motion... I wish the other team books I read from DC were HALF as together as THIS series is!

    Luckily, it's more than just pretty art. I came back to this book with this issue and expected a decent read with some good art. I got much more than I expected and am now anxious to continue following the story of Stormwatch as it moves forward. This is a quality book that features a team definitely tasked with a purpose (or two or three) within the DC Universe. With the heavy lifting complete by Cornell, this series is ready to explore new boundaries. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - M S R Feb 4, 2012

    Stormwatch has finally entrenched itself as a high quality action-packed book with a unique, sci-fi premise. The 'explorers of what might have been' riff that Cornell has set up for his successors is highly reminiscent of the premise of Planetary, and this reviewer for one hopes to see such strangeness on display in the following issues. This book offers a distinctive blend of widescreen fun that is not found elsewhere in current mainstream output, and as such, is not to be missed. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 1, 2012

    As far as this issue goes, it has some nice moments. The ship is revealed to be sentient and would like nothing more than to destroy the crew, but it's not allowed to, so it inserts death threats after its normal command prompts. Media uses her powers in yet another interesting way that shows she's not as gimmicky as first thought. The only reservation I had is the path set for the book: they now have to consult a map of dangerous stuff on Earth and stop any of it from falling into the wrong hands. Is there anything less Stormwatch-y than following a map? I guess it will be Jenkins' job to answer that question. Read Full Review

    Wildstorm Addiction - Joe David Soliz Feb 2, 2012

    Finally, I love that Cornell left some things unresolved so the next creative teams could handle them. Cornell set up so much that it would've felt rushed to try and wrap it all up here. It was recently announced that Peter Milligan will be taking over with #9 after Paul Jenkin's two-issue run on 7 and 8. So it'll be interesting to see how the three writers bridge everything together. I'm still enjoying this title a lot and I'm eagerly anticipating where we will go next with this team.

    However, we also getJack Hawksmoortalking to the city soul of the ship which is as awkward as it is stupid, I don't need yet another speech by the Martian Manhunteras to why the Justice League is stupid, andMidnighter andApollo‘s relationship is being handled with all the care of Twilight fan fiction. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
