Angela Spica, retooling her drysuit in Marlowe's hidden lab, has made many discoveries. But she's still her, which means she's also stolen stuff. Is she going to lose the only safe haven she has? The Wild CAT is in jeopardy, IO and Skywatch are inches from a hot war, and somebody, somewhere, has noticed that Jackie King has been doing things she shouldn't have. The stakes in the world of The Wild Storm have never been higher-and Project Thunderbook is going to make things much, much worse.

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Mar 7, 2018

    Hands down this is one of the best pieces of comic art being produced today. The trades will no doubt be a great way to catch up, but really this should be read as an on-going monthly wild ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Mar 7, 2018

    Another excellent issue from the gentlemen who have quickly become my favourite creative team in comics right now. In turns spectacular, intriguing, disturbing and heartbreaking, this is top drawer storytelling that oozes creativity, care and supreme confidence. Arguably, some of the banter is overplayed and the early page of recap is unnecessary, but these are minor quibbles in an otherwise hugely enjoyable comic. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Mar 7, 2018

    I've enjoyed all the character and story development we've had thus far, but now it looks like we're heading into serious conflict and I'm super excited for more action-oriented issues in the months to come! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Mar 19, 2018

    The opening shots have truly been fired in the war that will lead to the rebirth of The Wild Storm universe. As the complicated web takes hold and makes fools of all characters, Ellis' mastery of plot comes through. The best issue of the series to date combines action set in motion from the previous eleven issues. Read Full Review

    Well-written banter and the use of technological warfare carries the issue toward some shocking reveals, while the overarching story reaches its midway point. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 13, 2018

    Break-ins are the common theme of both storylines in The Wild Storm #12. As Jacklyn King begins I.O.‘s hack into Skywatch, Grifter and his team for an evacuation of an I.O. facility to steal data, crash their system (part of the plan), and leave lots of dead bodies (not so much part of the plan). The one thing that's clear after the dust settled is everyone is more on edge than they were before and the war Jennifer Mei Sparks saw brewing between Skywatch and IO may have just begun. I hope you are gathering your team Sparks, it appears the world is going to need them sooner than later. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 7, 2018

    If you've been bored, waiting for things to happen, this may be the issue for you. It seems to advance the narrative nicely, with some pay off at one point or another. But it seems to me a long time coming. Perhaps too long, but your mileage may vary. Read Full Review

    Ellis and Davis-Hunt return to top form with a fantastic issue that delivers on all the build-up. The writing is witty, for the most part, the story is well paced, the action is fierce and the artwork beautiful. Theres very little to dislike this month. Read Full Review
