Stormwatch, the UN Crisis Intervention Team, is in a state
of flux. The Weatherman, Stormwatch leader Henry Bendix, sets
out to recruit some new members to the team. These include
Jenny Sparks, an electric superhuman as old as the century,
Jack Hawksmoor, a man adapted by aliens to live in cities,
and the mute, lethal killer Rose Tattoo...
these early episodes (reprinted from 1996 issues) are the
first that Warren Ellis was responsible for writing, I find
the claim that "The issues of Stormwatch collected here
are extremely rare and valuable," hard to swallow. This
was a claim on the press release. These stories are only seven
years old and I'm sure most decent comic stores will stock
them or be able to get hold of copies if anyone was that interested.
of Nature never
really gripped me until the last handful of pages, by which
point it was too late. There is nothing new here that hasn't
been seen a hundred times before and the overused plot that
a human government wants rid of the superheroes is so tired
now that I found myself yawning while turning the pages.
art work is fairly average but anyone who wants to read a
half decent Stormwatch collection should look at Final
Orbit - which is much stronger.
