The Wild CAT must reinfiltrate the Hightower site in order to prevent their own exposure-and also the roll out of a new global surveillance tool that will cement I.O.'s dominance over the planet. But if you're a bunch of aliens and an ex-spook who faked his own death, you can probably be forgiven for thinking about your own weird skin first.  Jackie King and the I.O. analysis team could take a leaf out of their book, because they're about to undertake a cyber-attack on Skywatch, the managers of outer space, that could easily get them killed...

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jan 24, 2018

    Another issue, another set of slowly paced scenes that set the stage for action that, one presumes, will be forthcoming shortly. In the hands of any other creative team, this comic would have given me an aneurysm by now, but the story is so well told, so deftly handled that I can't help but admire – and recommend – it. While it might not be quite as memorable as any of the previous three issues, it is still a highly enjoyable and, at times, surprising read. If you want a superhero comic that's intelligent, witty, exquisitely drawn and confident enough to tell a story in its own sweet time, there really is only one game in town. Read Full Review

    How much you're going to like The Wild Storm #11 is going to depend on how patient you've bene with the series this far. For me, I've been loving the fascinating and richly detailed way that writer Warren Ellis and artist Jon Davis-Hunt have been reconstructing and rebooting the Wildstorm universe for a new era. But, there's also no denying that Ellis and Davis-Hunt have been moving their story forward at a measured, deliberate pace that focuses on establishing ideas, conflict, characters and concepts above action-packed thrills packed with incident.

    The series continues to grow, with this week focussing on lore rather than character roster. I'm really looking forward to seeing where the bits with Zealot and Bendix are going, and hope that tag team of Shen and Jen get more to do in coming weeks. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Jan 24, 2018

    Wild Storm is comic-booking at a high level, and this title joins the likes of Saga or the many works of Jeff Lemire, that might be taken for granted because it's always so damn good. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 25, 2018

    Both Skywatch and IO continue to look suspiciously at each other as frictions mount. This offers a chance for Henry Bendix to inform readers what happened the last time there was split between the two organizations, and on Earth Jacklyn King‘s team moves forward with what very likely may be the first step towards a new conflict. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Jan 24, 2018

    Other than that minor gripe, The Wild Storm is wholly different enough from the rest of what is being published by DC Comics that I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a fun thriller that is fun for both new fans and old. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 25, 2018

    There are times when it feels like Warren Ellis is too in love with letting his characters talk endlessly about what sexy bastards they are. And there's some of that here, but there's also some shades of The Authority and even a flashback sequence that seems reminiscent of Planetary. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 24, 2018

    This was a much better issue, as I feel some genuine narrative progress has been made. My biggest complaint with this series is its cast. Though everyone seemsto have a specific role, I am unable to remember anyone month-to-month. A refresher course regarding whos who and their relationships to others would bevery helpful.

    A slow-burn conspiracy thriller is all well and good, but once we're a year in and key characters have barely met, it's a problem. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Feb 1, 2018

    The Plot inches forward ever so slowly. Again we feel as though not much has happened while a million little things march their way to the finish line. A brief look into why the treaty is so important is probably the key take away from this issue. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Jan 25, 2018

    In all this is another ok issue that lacks anything major. If you follow the series then you need this issue to continue the story. If youre jumping on here then good luck. Ellis and Davis-Hunt are constructing an incredibly complex story that while it is pretty to look at, is becoming increasingly harder to follow. Read Full Review
