This volume kicks off with the missing issue 5 from the last book. You didn't know there was a missing issue did you? Well it explains how people came back from the dead. You don't need to know and would happily accept this is what happens in a reboot. The explanation is so-so and potentially sets up a good future storyline but this is the last volume in this series. The art for this issue is really different. It is clean and shiny with minimal detail making the characters feel poorly defined.
The next two stories are murder mysteries. One of the team members is shot and you will never guess who did it. Then someone is bumping off retired Stormwatch members. But you won't care who did it. These are good stories that keep you guessing but without the continued character depth of the previous volume or the dark politics of the Ellis era they don't feel like Stormwatch. The art for these two stories is more like volume one but not like the rich gritty textures of the classic Bryan Hitch run.
Could, and in fact should, have been more but still a Thumbs Up!
