Always interesting to see what a writer/artist had in mind and compare/contrast how you experienced a work. Anyways, interview here!
Cornell breaks down Stromwatch #1
On that cover, Apollo's costume looks less ugly although i dont' see why they shortened his hair. I still hate Midnighter's new costume.
Stormwatch really didn't need the costume changes. Apollo/Midnighter are perfect examples of change for change's sake.

If Stormwatch is a love letter, Warren Ellis needs a restraining order.
Yeah his respect for Ellis reads as a bit "Single, White Female" lol
I loved his explanation on the Apollo/Midnighter relationship. I definitely like the approach he's taking there. Really hope this title lives up to it's potential. Sepulveda needs to draw like I KNOW he can.
For all the love, I think he's weirdly unfair to how Apollo and Midnighter were originally treated. Yeah, they were already together when they were first introduced and the Superman/Batman theme has also been pretty clear. There was a lot of heart in their original introduction, though. It showed you the before and after of them hooking up. Leaving the middle part untold worked pretty well. But I get Cornell wanting to try something different. Can't blame him for that impulse. I'm just unimpressed with him and don't think writing relationships is one of the things I would give him credit for being good at.
