All Angela Spica did was save someone's life. And now hers is over. The rogue engineer lies bleeding in a place she hopes nobody will find - but she's wrong. The people embedded in the secret power structures of the world are tracking her. Skywatch. Halo. International Operations. A covert operative called Grifter. If only she hadn't unknowingly foiled an assassination planned by her boss. If only her boss wasn't the one person more interested in the Engineer's transhuman implants than in her life. It's all going very wrong, very quickly. There's going to be more blood.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 15, 2017

    The only thing that concerns me about this series is how busy Warren Ellis is, hopefully, DC is patient and lets him take his time and create something worth reading rather than chasing quick sales based on the name and nostalgia because the creators aren't going for nostalgia. Again, they're not changing stuff just to change it, but rather creating something that is almost like a Wild Storm Rebirth. All I know is that I'm enjoying the hell out of this series and can't wait to read and see more. Read Full Review

    I love the old Wild Storm universe, and maybe Im bias because of that, but I really do like the Wild Storm. I say start with the first issue, but definitely read the Wild Storm, especially if you are a fan of Wild Storm characters in general. Read Full Review

    Issue two has a lot of promise. I like the storylines and I like that there will be a huge collision course. Since this is a stand alone property in a stand alone universe, one can only hope that we will see some spin-offs from the mind of the great Jim Lee. Read Full Review

    THE WILD STORM #2 is low on action, but high on great exposition and character. A sign of positive things to come for the arc. Read Full Review

    The story is building slowly, but it's fun to see familiar characters in a new light. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Mar 15, 2017

    All told, the second issue of The Wild Storm is just about as strong as the first. The pace definitely feels scaled back, but not by much. At this point, I feel like Im fully invested in the world that Ellis has crafted here. Two issues deep, and without exposure to previous stories with these characters, thats impressive.

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Mar 15, 2017

    This issue does a lot to lay the ground for the world of The Wild Storm; hopefully that world grows at a reasonable rate and doesn't try to burn its audience out on canon. Still, a strong read from Ellis with good plotting from Davis-Hunt. Read Full Review

    If Warren Ellis keeps writing like this, he should get an entire line. Wait, what... Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 19, 2017

    In short, The Wild Storm #2 is a book that has a lot to offer and makes great use of the large cast of WildCATS/Stormwatch/Gen 13 characters and the warring spy agencies that run through that world. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 15, 2017

    Warren Ellis continues giving readers a smartly written book that is short on hand holding and high on intrigue.  While I worry that he isn't giving up enough of the basics (especially when it comes to characters), I am enjoying the ride and am willing to put some extra work in to get the most out of it.

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Mar 15, 2017

    The Wild Storm #2 has to follow its brilliant first issue, which made the most of hiring writer Warren Ellis as the mastermind for revitalizing the Windstorm Universe for DC Comics. Given the massive task of redefining an entire universe, it's to be expected there's going to be prolonged moments of world-building that will require a lot of info being explained to the reader. I just wish that the issue had chosen a more artful and less repetitive way of conveying info. It really made parts of the issue feel a bit laborious to get through, frankly. Despite great art and even with the cool concepts and ideas at its heart, The Wild Storm #2 comes off as a speed bump before the kick into high gear. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Mar 15, 2017

    The Wild Storm is just getting started, but once Ellis gets all of his chess pieces in place, hopefully he'll be able to hone in on fewer characters at a time and give us more intense examinations of them. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Mar 16, 2017

    The downside of this series is that Ellis still expects the readers to recognize all of the former Wildstorm players without fully reintroducing them. But the story is a lot more intriguing now than it was a month ago. Read Full Review

    Its early days for The Wild Storm so growing pains are to be expected, but here's hoping the title finds itself looking and reading smoother next month. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 18, 2017

    The Wild Storm is starting small and slow, while throwing names and vague exposition at us to try and distinguish between about a dozen seemingly identical characters. It's fine, but itdon't impress me much. Read Full Review
