Something frightening is happening in the outside world - Abominations are acting strangely, dragging victims away instead of killing them, amassing into hordes and working together as if they have a purpose. Inside The Compound, tensions rise as Runners lose freedoms in the wake of Teddy's disastrous return. Amid the increased threat outside the walls and the unrest within, Daisy has to say goodbye to Heather, whose latest run will take her through the worst of the dangers that the wilds have to offer.

    While this was an entertaining comic book, I hope writer Vita Ayala dives deeper into what the cause of this outbreak is and the struggle to find a cure. This, to me, seems like a real opportunity to make the story unique instead of focusing on frivolous friction between factions of survivors. The potential for development into an interesting, smart, mind-blowing story is here. We're just at the beginning of this journey, let's see where it takes us. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Apr 26, 2018

    'The Wilds' continues to evolve as a complicated human drama amid an outbreak of terror. Ayala tightens the tension around the protagonists leading to some unexpected twists. Pearson and Louise give us the dichotomy of a gorgeously rendered world fraught with danger and distrust. Like any good post-apocalyptic story, the only thing worse than the event itself are the survivors that follow it. Don't miss it. Read Full Review

    If you like the post-apocalypse because of human to human interaction, The Wilds is that series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kate Kosturski Apr 30, 2018

    Well-done setup to conflict, with art that makes the end times look actually pretty. But this is still a very tentative story, and I know that the talent here can push creative boundaries further. Hopefully that's coming. Read Full Review
