    Overall, this was a spectacular issue. I think Stormwatch is proving without a doubt that they have a very significant place in the DCU. Cornell is delivering on all aspects with this title and its obvious him and Sepulveda are collaborating well. If you're still hesitant about this title, I hope this issue sells if for you.

    Artist Miguel Sepulveda also hits a home run with the depictions, except for Midnighter's chin spike, of course. The page of Apollo gearing himself up for something huge in space in particular had a wonderful feel to it, especially the shading used to broadcast his uncertainty in the bottom panel. If you haven't already been reading this then you should be, and if you have, read it again. Read Full Review

    I thought this was a really good issue. Sure, I'd like to know more about the individual Stormwatch members, but I'll have to assume that's in the cards sometime soon... Hopefully. So while the story and characterizations are coming along slowly, the action is keeping me invested in this series. Bottom line? This series successfully passed it's three month test, meaning it's permanently on my pull list. Read Full Review

    Stellar action and plenty of fun moments, but it's still missing that bit of oomph to really drive it into the cream of the DC crop, besides being rather repetitive at times. Read Full Review

    Not that that should stop you from giving the series a look. Between this book and Demon Knights, Cornell is proving himself to be a major asset for DC in the relaunch. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Nov 6, 2011

    Not a fantastic comic yet, "Stormwatch" continues to improve since its first issue. The shift in how Cornell writes the characters helps a lot and Sepulveda shows moments of visual brilliance, though most of his art is buried under horrible computer effects. At this rate, this may become the premier big budget superhero action team book. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 6, 2011

    Even if we accept all of this, how does this stop someone with superhuman senses, like say Superman, or someone with a space ring that warns of just such issues, like say the three Green Lanterns on the planet, from noticing the Earth is under attack? And, an even bigger question, even if they could stop them from finding out about such a danger why would they? As we see in this issue they could use all the help they can get. Hit-and-Miss.
