rich711's Stormwatch #7 - Supercritical, Part One review

I give up, this book sucks monkey balls.

I tried to like this book but it is just no use anymore. This attempt at bringing back Stormwatch and cramming them into the DC Universe is just a terrible and boring book. It is a shadow of past Stormwatch/The Authority incarnations. Most of the characters are 2 dimensional and the others are goofy caricatures. The story lines are laughably bad. I feel like they are not so much existing in secret from the other DC superheroes but more likely Batman and Superman found these losers and decided if they didnt make eye-contact and pretend they dont see them they wont have to ever deal with this band of pretentious dicks with idiotic powers like "City-Speak" and "Media-Manipulations" and "Really good at lying." The whole thing sounds like something that seemed genius when the writer came up with it while on LSD but then a day later reread it and realized it was just nonsensical bullshit. Why Stormwatch continues to get printed, I do not know.

But it doesn't change the fact that the "We Can Be Heroes" banner is a huge detriment to the covers its on.Farewell Paul Cornell.... Hello Paul Jenkins? It might just be me, but things didn't feel as smooth as when Cornell was writing. I could just be biased, I really like Paul Cornell, and I know very little of Paul Jenkins. It...
