    The Wild Storm may be all about big moments and big ideas, but Michael Cray #4 continues to find strength in the smaller moments along with its killer hook. A hitman with a code isn't exactly groundbreaking when it comes to comics, but The Wild Storm: Michael Cray #4 continues the title's streak of being more than just a sum of its own parts with grace, grit, and a consistent focus.

    Thus far, this has taken a universe that wasn't quite working in the main book and turned it into something genuinely unexpected and thrilling. Read Full Review

    We are only a third of the way through this 12-issue series, where Hill and Hama have managed to ramp the action each time. It doesn't take a genius to see where this series is going as Michael works his way up through the DC powerhouses. But where is leads Cray himself is another question entirely and I am all in for that ride. Read Full Review

    Bryan Hill is coming into his element as Michael Cray continues on his Justice League killing spree. Goofy Elseworld-style stories aside, this is proving to be a fantastic series with great value to readers. Hills writing style can appeal to all readers, and while the artwork is a little spotty depending on your tastes, this series is starting to show up its parent title, The Wild Storm. Warren Ellis should watch out. Read Full Review

    It feels like this comic has fallen into the trap of simply sending Michael Cray after broken or crazy versions of DC's greatest heroes within the new Wildstorm universe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jan 10, 2018

    Some good ideas and engaging dialogue notwithstanding, this series continues to fail to deliver fully on its initial intriguing premise. Inconsistent art and the odd issue with pacing mean this issue isn't as enjoyable as it could be, and the series as a whole, even at this early stage, is settling into a formula that is already beginning to feel like it's past its sell-by date. This is reinforced by a final page that is evidently meant to evoke some sort of anticipation in the reader, but left this one at least less than thrilled. A disappointing issue. Read Full Review
