Brief Mentions: Stormwatch P.H.D. #13

StormWatch P.H.D. #13

The final of the new World's End titles was released this week. Now there are 4 rather good ongoing Wildstorm titles and that means that I have 4 titles to buy every month that I didn't have at the beginning of the summer. StormWatch P.H.D. was a really fantastic title that was unfortunately short lived. Christos Gage created a great cast of characters while he penned the series and it was one of my favorites. Many people speculate that because after the "WorldStorm" relaunch of the WildStorm Universe that the titles didn't take off like most people had hoped because the flagship titles "WildCATS" and "The Authority" weren't what anyone would call "on-time". With only 1 issue of the Grant Morrison penned, Jim Lee drawn WildCATS ever seeing release and only 2 of the Grant Morrison penned and Gene Ha drawn The Authority having ever come out the line sort of slowed and eventually stalled. Gen 13 was the only one that really stayed on track. But now three mini-series events have lead to the World ending in the WSU. It all started with WildStorm Revelations, then transitioned into Armageddon and finally, Number of the Beast. Now the StormWatch team is truly a last resort for those who have survived the horrific events of Number of the Beast and SkyWatch 3 has become more than just a base of operations but salvation for those unfortunates that have found themselves on the wrong side of the super-humans who have taken over what is left of the world ...

I am rambling ... that happens when I really like something.

So, you should check out the recent releases, The Authority #1, WildCATS #1, Gen 13 #21, and the most recent addition to the line StormWatch P.H.D. #13.
