stormwatch-2-coverMy biggest complaint with the first issue of the series was the terribly rushed art by Miguel Angel Sepulveda. The art of the second issue is a definite improvement and the series introduces more members of the team (including their leader Adam One) and further explains the role of Stormwatch in the DC Universe.

Once the Martian Manhunter has calmed down Apollo and Midnigther the team starts to look into the problem of the moon where The Eminence of Blades has come across a hostile alien lifeform.

To keep the Justice League from getting in their way of actually solving the problem, Stormwatch uses the powers of the Projectionist and the Martian Manhunter to suggest a random supervillain is responsible for the moon’s attack of the Earth leaving the team to settle matters quietly on their own. It’s actually a hilarious idea, even if it is a low-blow to the JLA.

The second issue works well (even with the unsubtle entendres between Apollo and Midnighter). Worth a look.

[DC, $2.99]
