Apparently, when they came to Starlin to write Stormwatch, he asked instead if he could write a Lobo book. When they told him that no one would read that, he did it anyway and just put Stormwatch on the cover.
“It is one of the mysteries of Lobo that even we cannot fully fathom.” Yep, a direct quote from some dimensional-manipulating aliens called the Kollective who are supposed to be all-powerful. But more what I think this is is a statement of how much Starlin loves Lobo.
Also silly little Jenny tried to trust someone and they turned out evil. PLOT TWIST.
Seriously, who okays books like this?

If the guy in the helmet who’s running Stormwatch turns out to be Henry Bendix, I’m going to call more shenanigans on this book. Seriously.
As much as I’m glad that Jenny finds the Kollective’s weakness and prepares to take them down, I’m not so thrilled that she also feels the deaths of people on her and that creepy helmet guy spies on her.
Why is Lobo in this book? What does Starlin love about him so much? Are they ready for a new creative team yet?

So there was both racism and homophobia in this issue. Guess what? I’m done. This is off my pull list. I love Apollo and Midnighter and the rest of the Authority, but I’m not going to spend my money on pure garbage.
