Earlier today, DC Comics let it be known that Jim Starlin will be taking on Stormwatch with April's #19 joined by artist Yvel Guichet.
The official solicit
and first cover, which Starlin drew, has now been released.
Update: The cover is by Will Conrad as Starlin informs us on his official Facebook page that his cover wasn't ready:
JUST TO SET THE RECORD RIGHT. Some on-line coverage of me taking over the writing on Stormwatch have reported that the image that went out with DC's solicitations was my cover for issue #19. That beautiful piece of art was rendered (I believe) by Will Conrad. We missed the solicitation deadline and that image was used as a filler. In fact I haven't yet seen my cover fully inked by Rob Hunter. Credit where credit is due. Besides, Yvel's and my version of Apollo and Midnighter don't look anything like that.
