Another day, another announcement that creative teams are changing. This time it’s Stormwatch.
DC Comics has announced that Paul Jenkins will step up to the Stormwatch series beginning with issue #7 for a two issue arc.
“The Stormwatch crew can’t ever catch a break — no simple threats like bloodthirsty monsters or world-dominating supervillains to stop, it’s always some mind-cracking knot that Apollo, Midnighter and the rest of the crew have to untie,” says editor Pat McCallum. “This time out, Stormwatch have to solve the puzzle of dimension-stepping gravity miners, creatures so alien they’re not even technically alive. The last stand of humanity or, as Stormwatch calls it, ‘Monday.’”
There’s no word if Paul Cornell will return with issue #9 or if yet another team will pen the series, though Cornell’s tweet seems to make his exit final (for now).
“I’ll be staying on Demon Knights and Saucer Country, but 6 is my last issue of Stormwatch. Thanks, everyone. Good luck to Paul Jenkins.”
Cornell will remain with Demon Knights and Saucer Country.
Do all of these creative team changes seem like bad times are ahead, or is this just another change in the natural course of a series?
