StormWatch Vol. 3 - Change or Die (Comic Review)

As with the last book review this is posted in full on and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.

StormWatch always was one of those series which was constantly overlooked even at the height of its strength. Having a beginning in the Dark Age of comics which was the early 90s, the series really never garnered serious attention for being one of many dull xtreme antihero clones which saturated the market. Even when it got good once Warren Ellis took control, many of its stories suffered from low sales and were overshadowed by its more popular successor: The Authority.

What we’re looking at today is one of the best collections of the series: Concluding the biggest arc of Ellis’ tenure, foreshadowing the future and giving some insight into what would follow.

The High, one of the three most powerful metahumans ever to have lived, suddenly re-emerges from exile with one goal: To completely rip down all of society and start anew. Combined with a band of superpowered individuals with the same goal, the High seems unstoppable even when facing the United Nations metahuman taskforce: StormWatch. However, as they prepare for battle many of its members begin to ask the same question: Are they really on the right side in this conflict?
