CBR Review: Stormwatch #1

I recently reviewed Stormwatch #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "If you didn’t have some knowledge of Stormwatch or, better yet, The Authority heading into this issue, it’s not a good introduction. On the first page, we’re alerted that one of the central plots actually stems from Superman #1, which doesn’t come out until September 28, a puzzling way to begin a new first issue. From there, there’s no proper introduction to the concept of the team or its members beyond brief one-sentence descriptors. The recruitment of Apollo seems like a plot tailor-made to introduce the team and its mandate, especially since Apollo seemingly wants nothing to do with groups like the Justice League. What sets this superhuman team apart from any others? It’s a little more secret apparently and... no, that’s it."
