It’s either a bold new world for Stormwatch or the end of the road.
After years of being the UN’s go-to super-team, Stormwatch got its funding pulled and now answers solely to the U.S. government. Along with the downgrade in status come the inevitable cuts to funding and personnel, but director Jackson King isn’t about to let that stop him from creating a new force to be reckoned with.
Instead of tackling super-powered criminals with high technology and waves of superheroes, King assembles Stormwatch: Post Human Division, a team made up of second-tier heroes and one-time villains designed to get inside the bad guys’ heads and figure out how to stop them without breaking the bank.
Of course when the villainous Lord Defile finds out about PHD, he simply can help but take it as a personal challenge…
The re-launch of the Wildstorm Universe has met with mixed results (don’t even get me started on the new WildCats series), but Stormwatch: PHD, written by Christos Gage (Deadshot, Union Jack) and drawn by personal fave Doug Mahnke (JLA, Seven Soldiers) is definitely one of the best of the lot.
