There's a covert action team out in the wild, and I.O. has proof of it for the first time. This changes everything. The woman who tipped the first domino in this cascade of secrets and lies is on the run. And the other great power of the hidden world is on the scene. Henry Bendix is noticing things from on high, and that doesn't bode well for I.O., Angela Spica or the planet. The storm is building.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 17, 2017

    I am at the point in which I might need some things defined clearly for me in the near future, but for now, I'm enjoying the slow burn that the creators are working on and I'm happy that there's more to come according to Ellis himself. By my estimate, it would be twenty more at least, plus the spinoff that I'm anxious to see. By far, The Wild Storm is one of DC's top comics and with a few more issues under its belt it may even take the top spot. For now, though, it's one of the comics you should be reading.

    THE WILD STORM is coming together with each issue that is released. Ellis and Davis are on the right path for revamping a universe for a new audience. It's the sci-fi espionage book that DC needs in their arsenal. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw May 17, 2017

    Ellis is building a world here. He's weaving a grandnarrative that is not going to be resolved in a few issues' time. This issuecontinues the leisurely pace established in the first two instalments of thisstory. While the background we get here is important and very welcome, the lackof impetus moving forward is an issue. That said, I trust Ellis; if you canhang on, I suspect the eventual payoff will be worth your patience. And, in themeantime, you do get some gorgeous artwork and truly excellent dialogue.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina May 17, 2017

    Miles' husband sums it up best when he says, "So, how did crazy girl, get robot skin inside of her? Oh my God, that is something that I actually just said. God." That is pretty much where we are in this book. The characters are all in the dark, so the readers are as well. Still, the characters are interesting and they make me want to come back for more.

    There are still a lot of questions but even in a short scene, it feels like we're getting relevant information. Not a lot of writers are able to do that, and The Wild Storm is better for it. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra May 17, 2017

    The Wild Storm continues to be a twisty, turny tapestry of half explained concepts from the source material's former canon and cool super-spy updates of simpler concepts that don't need much explanation. It's fun, and if you can keep up, it's an interesting ride, but the further the story goes the more evident it becomes that this is not a 'light read' or for casuals. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 24, 2017

    While Bendix's addition fits well into the mix, I'm still not sure exactly how the new version of Jenny Sparks (introduced in the last issue) fits in with all these other pieces. Like her first incarnation, she continues to be a wild card who could have major impact in a variety of different ways. And how many of her old friends will also show up in the coming issues? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    If the characters were more compelling, this could become something special. But it's only half of what it should be. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Tyler Wing Jun 24, 2017

    Warren Ellis is driving the newest Maserati way under the speed limit, a criminal act alone, while the passenger says, "Are we there yet?" Nope, not even close. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 20, 2017

    The Wild Storm spends its fourth issue recapping the first three. It feels like it was supposed to be meaningful, but Ellis has done such a shoddy job of world-building that I feel mostly lost whenever he name-drops some other entity in this world. Read Full Review
