DCnU: Stormwatch #1


            I guess if the idea is to have a confusing and shadowy start to Stormwatch, then Paul Cornell succeeded.  I just got lost in this mess of an opening.  There is apparently a big horn, which gives us the campiest line I have read in a comicbook in a long time.  The characters seem to not really exists in the DCnU the way they present things.  I am not well versed in the backgrounds of these characters and received little info about them here.  Martian Manhunter is unrecognizable to me and I just really think this is a book I will not be reading.  The only cool thing was the creature that is in the moon.  This book will tie directly into the mystery woman's warning from Flashpoint #5 about some gigantic menace coming to Earth.  Otherwise I take a pass.
