    Milligan is off to a strong start in a story that seems deceivingly self-contained. I feel he's setting up some great stuff here and I for one am hooked with this new writer. Stormwatch continues to be one of the stronger titles of the New 52. Read Full Review

    Stormwatch #9 features a solid debut performance from Milligan, backed up by some truly superlative artwork. For those doubtful of the book's future direction, fear not- the title's in good hands! Read Full Review

    Miguel Sepulveda maintains the high quality from last issue and keeps the heroes of Stormwatch looking good. The battle with Skallox takes place on what would otherwise be a beautiful sunlit hillside, if it weren't for the napalm-vomit and dismemberment. Sepulveda goes above and beyond on this out-there title, whether he's drawing the ship cruising through hyperspace, the Vitruvian Man erupting with energy, or a little girl manipulating dark matter.

    "Stormwatch" remains a book that I want to get behind 100%, but from issue to issue it's still wildly unpredictable. Hopefully as Milligan and Sepulveda continue to work together they'll find a good rhythm. For now, though, it's a book that you should keep an eye on -- there's enough quality material here to definitely warrant that -- but it's not going to be the top of the to-read list.

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks May 8, 2012

    It's not a terrible issue, but it is a poor effort for Milligan's first. Maybe now that he is done reintroducing Stormwatch to readers, he can move on to some actual interesting things. My optimism for that is thoroughly beaten down, though. This reads like Red Lanterns, in which Milligan honestly doesn't seem all that interested in the characters he's writing. Read Full Review
